Job Opening: Teaching Associate Professorship in Marketing


We now have a job opening as Teaching Associate Professor in Marketing at the Department of Marketing, Copenhagen Business School.

This position is about a) teaching and associated examination in existing CBS programs; b) promoting CBS’ academic reputation; and c) promoting the teaching capabilities of Copenhagen Business School including blended learning approaches.

Based in architecturally beautiful buildings in central Copenhagen, the Department of Marketing is a leading provider of excellent research-based education. This is an exciting time for us, as we celebrated recently our 100th anniversary. Our strategy is unashamedly ambitious. Our goal is to be the undisputed leader in marketing education in Scandinavia and a leading marketing department on a European level, held in high esteem in terms of our research and education. Our mission is to deliver excellent research-led education to an international audience at all levels, and to engage with business and society.

The Department focuses on contributing to a holistic understanding of the interactions and activities in the marketplace. Thus, our research focuses on marketing, yet we draw on other academic disciplines to the extent that they improve the quality of our marketing research. The research of the Department covers broad areas (often cross disciplinary) in both business-to-business and business-to-consumer marketing. Faculty members use a wide range of methodologies, both qualitative and quantitative. Through our research-based teaching, we contribute across a palette of courses and programs in the Business School including brand marketing management, business-to-business marketing, consumer behavior, design, international marketing, marketing management, marketing performance, relationship marketing, and tourism marketing.

We now invite applications for a vacant Teaching Associate Professorship in Marketing. This position is permanent with teaching obligations. To fulfill the research requirements of the position, we expect the candidate to be physically present on a regular basis and actively participate in the teaching activities of the Department. The successful candidate must have a sustained record of satisfactory teaching experience from universities and/or business schools. The advertised Teaching Associate Professorship is in marketing, yet we are particularly interested in business-to-consumer marketing. Candidates must be able to teach in Danish, as the courses are given in this language. Candidates with a Ph.D. are preferred.
