Expression of Interest: Tenure-track Assistant Professorship

The Department of Marketing will advertise in early 2021 a tenure-track assistant professorship. We will look for tenure-track assistant professor candidates through a broad search process to ensure that a pool of highly qualified candidates is available for consideration. We will advertise the tenure-track position in an open call using international portals including, ELMAR, LinkedIn, and the Department’s homepage. We will also, if possible, be present at leading and relevant international conferences to conduct informal interviews with interested candidates. Finally, we will continue to make the most of our professional networks to identify suitable candidates.  

As the Department has a strong commitment to excellence, distinctiveness, and relevance of its research, education, and outreach, candidates, who wish to join us, need to demonstrate enthusiasm for working in a department of this type. Our dedicated faculty are curious and passionate, and they are free to develop their own research and education (when this is possible). Successful candidates therefore should have:

1)    A Ph.D. in marketing (or another relevant discipline) from a business school or university.

2)    A professional proficiency in English (in writing and speaking). A professional proficiency in Danish (in writing and speaking) would be an advantage.

3)    The ability to conduct high-quality research (demonstrated in their completed Ph.D. thesis and, preferably, journal publications at level AJG 3 or above. Publications in journals on the FT 50 list are particularly welcome).

4)    The ability to conduct excellent teaching at Bachelor and Master levels. Candidates need to demonstrate seriousness in their teaching and must adhere to academic integrity. They must be willing to engage in pedagogical initiatives that ensure students’ mastering of the subject taught. Furthermore, candidates must be willing to participate in department and business school-wide education activities.

5)    The ability to complete CBS’ Assistant Professor Program (APP) that leads to a documented pedagogical qualification, and the willingness to engage in continuous pedagogical development.

6)    The ability to plan, undertake, and report research, education, and service (e.g., administration and academic citizenship) activities effectively, efficiently, and on time.

7)    The willingness to be an active citizen in the Department where a supportive and inclusive environment is top priority.

8)    The dedication to develop dynamic leadership in research, education, and services.
