An ability to teach in executive programs and/or to contribute to teaching on corporate strategy or business ethics would be an advantage. The anticipated starting date is September 2020 but an earlier start is possible.

  • have a promising research portfolio, preferably with (forthcoming) publications in reputable journals;
  • take their teaching seriously, preferably with proven ability in teaching Strategy or Strategy-related courses at the undergraduate and graduate level;
  • are ambitious team players, with an ability to both be self-motivated and work in a team.
