The Department of Marketing & Management invites applications for one or more positions as Postdoc in Strategic Organization Design. The positions are located in Odense, but teaching may be required at the campus in Slagelse. The positions are vacant from 1 September 2018 or soon after.

Job description

Research in Strategic Organization Design is focused on the academic fields of strategy and organization science. Our agenda addresses important and interesting unsolved research questions relating to organizational design and adaptation, including the role of AI and new emergent technologies. We seek candidates with a strong passion for research and a desire to work on groundbreaking ideas, and we expect them to publish their research in the leading scholarly journals. If the candidates have not published in top-ranked journals, they should have demonstrated a willingness to aim for the most recognized academic outlets internationally, and have a strategy where such aims are realistically planned for and realizable within the next few years. We encourage applications from the fields of strategy and organization science, but also from neighboring fields such as behavioral economics, organizational economics, social psychology, decision science, and computer science.

The candidates should have a Ph.D. degree within the mentioned research area and will be expected to teach and instruct students who participate in bachelor and master courses in business strategy and organization theory.
 
Candidates are furthermore expected to have an interest in (and preferably experience with) knowledge exchange with society in relation to the field of research. In addition to the abovementioned requirements, it is an advantage if candidates have experience with fundraising, a desire and competence to play a whole-hearted role in the development of an interdisciplinary and enthusiastic research environment as well as contribute positively to the department as a whole. 

To fulfill the requirements of the position, the candidates chosen are expected to be physically present on a regular basis. 

Owing to the increasingly international focus of the degree programs, applicants must demonstrate ability to teach in English. If the successful applicant is not fluent in Danish, he or she will be expected to learn Danish within a period of approximately two years.

Research within the Department is anchored in an understanding of the cooperation between markets, organizations and individuals. It encompasses a variety of areas from evolutionary models of organization to new exotic forms of consumption. Research at the Department is organized in five research units. See the Department website http://www.sdu.dk/imm for more details.

For further information, please contact Professor WSR and head of research Oliver Baumann, telephone: +45 6550 4433 or email: oliv@sod.dias.sdu.dk.

Application, salary, etc.

Appointment to the position requires a PhD or equivalent and will be in accordance with the salary agreement between the Ministry of Finance and the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations.

Research will be predominant in the position. Other types of assignments may occur to a limited degree and the distribution of the various assignments is determined by the University. The weighting of the different assignments may vary over time.

Upgrading of pedagogical qualifications is not a part of this position. Employment as Postdoc alone will thus not qualify to appointment as Associate Professor/Senior Researcher.
