 The Department of Management at Aarhus BSS, Aarhus University invites applications for a position as professor in the fields of Organisation, Strategy or Accounting. The professorship is a full-time and permanent position starting on 1 August 2018 or as soon as possible subject to mutual agreement.

Job description
The successful applicant is expected to contribute significantly to the department’s research and teaching environment and to promote the overall research strategy of the School.

You are expected to teach and supervise students at the Bachelor’s, Master’s and PhD levels and to carry out individual and group-based research of the highest international standard contributing to the development of our academic field.

Applicants should have a strong academic background as associate professor or equivalent and must be able to demonstrate significant contributions to development in the field. Qualifications must be documented by a number of published contributions of international standard. In addition, strong teaching qualifications are desirable (within the relevant area). The applicant's ability for undertaking the specific responsibilities in relation to the position is of particular relevance.

The applicant must have proven research leadership and administrative skills, e.g. in attracting external funding, developing and leading activities and personal experiences with leading international research projects and industry cooperation. Equally important, the applicant must be able to provide quality teaching both at the undergraduate and the graduate levels and must be committed to developing the study programs. The department has a keen focus on talent development; therefore, it is important that the applicant engages in talent development, e.g. spotting potential PhD students, further developing our PhD program and supporting young scholars. Finally, the applicant must participate in and support the department’s knowledge exchange efforts to the surrounding society.

Permanent employment as professor at Aarhus BSS requires completion of the supervision course as well as the Blended Learning – Go Online course provided by Centre for Teaching and Learning at Aarhus BSS. If you have not completed the courses prior to employment, continued employment will be conditional on completion of the courses within a five-year period.

Who we are
At the Organisation, Strategy and Accounting section, our research on organisations covers a broad range of themes, such as organisational design and behaviour, as well as the management of public and multinational organisations. In several ways, our research on strategy is related to our studies of organisations, for example, when it comes to the role of managerial competencies or design of organisations in achieving strategic goals. We also do research in areas such as business models, strategic foresight and international strategy. Our management accounting research focuses on the creation and use of valid accounting information and performance management.

The Department of Management is one of the six departments at Aarhus BSS, one of the four faculties at Aarhus University. Aarhus BSS unites the research fields of business and social sciences bringing them closer together to reflect the close relationship between society and the business community. As part of a Top-100 university, Aarhus BSS, and specifically the Department of Management, has achieved the distinguished AASCB, AMBA and EQUIS accreditations – the latter specifically applying to the school’s core business activities.
The department’s research and teaching environment is highly international and culturally diverse with a mix of Danish and international academic staff members and PhD students. We employ more than 160 academic staff including researchers, PhD students, and research associates and cover a broad range of disciplines within management, e.g. marketing, corporate communication, international business, organization, HR, strategy, management accounting, innovation management, entrepreneurship, project management, and information systems. We aim to conduct high-quality research, and we give high priority to publishing our research in leading academic journals and presenting it at recognised conferences. In addition, we have a dynamic exchange of international researchers, who stay at the department for short or long periods of time.
