Associate Professor in Design Entrepreneurship

Copenhagen Business School invites applications for a vacant Associate Professorship in Design Entrepreneurship at the Department of Management, Politics and Philosophy (MPP). The successful candidate would have a program of both research and teaching broadly related to the dynamics of user-centered product and firm development. We are particularly interested in candidates with a special focus on pedagogics and educational innovation at a business school.

Profile of MPP

MPP is an internationally recognized multi-disciplinary research department that aims to produce and disseminate innovative, creative and critical/reflexive research about firms and entrepreneurs and their relationship to society. A creative, multi-disciplinary dialogue that challenges and combines academic disciplines and perspectives ties research at the department together. This implies that core areas like management, strategy, leadership, innovation, entrepreneurship, aesthetics, politics, philosophy, sociology and history, become productive and critically relevant in new ways. The department is committed to research-based education and to bringing this new knowledge into play in society in a constructive, engaged, and valuable manner. A key focus of MPP is to publish its research with highly ranked academic journals and publishers across a broad spectrum of areas, reflecting the department’s multidisciplinary set-up.

MPP is organised into four research groups: politics; business history; philosophy; and management and entrepreneurship. Within and between these groups, research and teaching is developed theoretically and empirically in areas such as leadership philosophy; business ethics; sociology of markets and organization; sustainability; the history of markets and businesses; organizations and entrepreneurship; art and aesthetics; strategy; welfare management and political communication. MPP participates in cross CBS activities such as “Business in Society” platform work. Across the department, there is a keen interest in developing new forms of teaching and learning environments in collaboration with CBS faculty, international researchers, students and partner organizations. MPP’s researchers teach in a wide range of CBS programs and cover Bachelor, Master and PhD levels as well as executive programs.

Profile of the position
In announcing an Associate Professorship in Design Entrepreneurship the department seeks applicants whose pedagogical approaches and research focus on the role of design thinking in entrepreneurial practice and education. Specifically, we welcome candidates who can engage in cross-disciplinary perspectives on the dynamic and creative processes of user-centered product and service development. Topics may include market and consumer research, user-led innovation, the role of art and aesthetics in product development, customer value propositions related to lifestyles, and related topics.

The successful candidate is expected to productively translate the insights of these research fields into innovative teaching formats. Special attention is being paid to the development of innovative didactics and “studio pedagogy”, i.e. experiential teaching initiatives following a “learning by making”-philosophy. Over time, the ambition is to use, develop and explore how the research in design thinking and entrepreneurship can be transformed into the didactical field itself by e.g. engaging in case development, experiential learning, blended learning, cross-institutional and -disciplinary programs, massive open online courses, and related initiatives. The Associate Professor is expected to actively contribute to establishing and developing international research networks and partnerships around the research on, and practice of, business school teaching and to engage with practitioners in the relevant fields. The successful candidate is expected to bridge business education to other relevant fields. The Associate Professorship is a tenured position with research and teaching obligations.

To fulfill the research requirements of the position, the applicant chosen is expected to be physically present on a regular basis and actively participate in the teaching and research activities of the Department.
