Both positions are linked to the research center Digital Innovation for Growth – DIG – and ongoing research within business model innovation and ecosystems. The candidates’ research will be part of a new research grant from the Research Council of Norway – “Business model innovation and ecosystems for seamless transactions in retail – BEST in Retail”. The positions are for a duration of four years.

We are seeking ambitious candidates early in their careers, who can document relevant research and teaching capabilities within business administration or adjacent fields. We encourage candidates with a background in strategy, entrepreneurship, or marketing to apply. The Department offers a stimulating research environment with internationally renowned research groups in a wide range of fields, providing high quality research and teaching.

The applicants will be assessed based on an overall evaluation of documented professional competence, and a doctoral degree from an accredited institution is required. Scientific competence will be evaluated in terms of the amount and quality of research and the ability to publish in leading academic journals.
In the assessment of applicants, international research experience will be emphasized, in addition to experience in teaching. In the event of equivalent qualifications, female applicants will be given preference.

Faculty members at NHH are expected to be good teachers. The appointee is expected to be involved in teaching on average of one course per year and student supervision in degree programs at the master level. Formal pedagogical education and practical experience with teaching will count positively for the job.
