Professor WSR in Strategic Organization Design

The Department of Marketing & Management invites applications for one or more positions as Professor with Specific Responsibilities in Strategic Organization Design. The positions are located in Odense and are vacant from 1 March 2017 or soon after. The professorship is time-limited to a period of 5 years with the possibility of extension. The main responsibilities will focus on research and development tasks.

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 such as:
1) The aggregation problem: How do micro-processes influence the macrobehavior of organizations?
2) The adaptation problem: How does multi-level adaptation enable organizations to succeed in dynamic environments?
3) The strategic design problem: Which design rules and which schemes of adaptation generate superior performance?
4) The heterogeneity problem: What are the sources of heterogeneity in populations of business organizations?

We are looking for candidates with the potential to decisively add to this research agenda. Successful candidates will have an international profile and a strong record of research publications in globally top-ranked journals, preferably in journals such as Academy of Management Review, Administrative Science Quarterly, Manage­ment Science, Organization Science, or Strategic Manage­ment Journal. 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.

Also, successful candidates will have substantial teaching experience in relevant areas. The candidates must document pedagogical qualifications and compe­ten­ces at development and innovation in the pedagogical domain.

We expect the successful applicants to actively engage in the development of the research unit as well as contribute positively to the Department as a whole. As senior scholars, candidates are expected to contribute actively to the social and academic lives at the department as well as participate in the guidance of doctoral students and junior faculty. Also, we expect active and constructive participation in the university's academic administration. To fulfill the requirements of the position, the candidates chosen are expected to be physically present on a regular basis.

Beyond the research publication record and the teaching experiences, the candi­date will have a record of academic and scholarly leadership. The candidate must be capable of providing dynamic leadership in the development of research and teaching, in securing external research funding, and in establishing strong ties with the international research community.

The candidate 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.

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. It is the ambition of the Department to be in the international frontline in these areas and to seek synergy between research, teaching and knowledge dissemination. Research at the Department is organized in five research units. See the SOD website http://www.sod-research.com and the Department website http://www.sdu.dk/en/Om_SDU/Institutter_centre/I_marketing.aspx for more details.
