Associate Professorship in Marketing at the Department of Marketing at Copenhagen Business School
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 last year celebrated Copenhagen Business School’s (CBS) 100th anniversary. Our newly revised strategy is unashamedly ambitious. Our goal is to be the undisputed leader in marketing education in Scandinavia, and a leading marketing department on a global level, held in high esteem in terms of our research, education, and engagement. Our mission is to deliver excellent research-led education to a world-wide audience at all levels, as well as to engage with business and society.
Faculty members are committed to rigorous theory development and theory-driven, empirical research—outcomes that are central goals for any reputed business school. 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. We accordingly publish in both marketing and other relevant journals. Our research covers broad areas (often cross-disciplinary) in both business-to-business and business-to-consumer marketing, for example, brand marketing management, circular economy and sustainability, corporate social responsibility, decision neuroscience, design management, international marketing, market orientation, product innovation management, relationship marketing, strategic marketing, tourism and destination marketing, and trust. 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 at CBS including brand marketing management, business-to-business marketing, consumer behavior, design, international marketing, marketing management, marketing performance, relationship marketing, and tourism marketing.
The main responsibilities of the advertised position are research and teaching in marketing—in particular consumer behavior and innovation marketing—and development tasks in relation to marketing courses and programs. An active engagement to strengthen the relationship with (and to brand the Department and CBS in) business and society and to initiate and participate in external research funding all is expected as an integral part of this position.
The successful candidate must have an international profile with experience from respected universities/business schools, a sustained record of research publications in leading academic journals (e.g., journals at minimum AJG [previously known as ABS] 3 level and/or journals in the FT 50 list) with at least some of these publications being in traditional marketing journals. The successful candidate also must have a strong record of securing external research funding. The successful candidate ideally has experience in research management, as well as successful teaching experience from relevant marketing areas. The successful candidate must be able to provide dynamic leadership in the development of research, teaching, and research dissemination, as well as in working with business and society. The Department prides itself of its active, supportive, and inclusive research environment, and the successful candidate is expected to be active in terms of academic citizenship.
