The Department of Strategic Management and Globalization (SMG), Copenhagen Business School, invites expressions of interest for one or more six-year tenure-track assistant professor positions in strategic and international management, with a starting date around September 2018. Prospective candidates should hold or be very close to receiving their PhD degree around this date. They should also have very strong prospects for a successful research career as well as the willingness and ability to become effective teachers.
SMG employs an international group of 13 full-time faculty members, as well as part-time faculty, postdocs, PhD students, and adjunct faculty. The core research and teaching area of the Department is strategic and international management. This includes themes like the creation and implementation of global strategies, offshoring and internationalization of firms, the role of individuals and teams in knowledge-based competitive advantage, social networks, strategic entrepreneurship, strategic risk management, and the impact of informal and formal structures on firm performance and innovation. SMG’s stated aim is to continue to be among the leading departments in strategic and international management in Europe.
According to the UT Dallas Texas rankings over the past six years CBS ranks 6th in the world for research output published in Strategic Management Journal and Journal of International Business Studies, the two leading specialist outlets in SMG’s domain. SMG faculty have received many research awards from the AoM, AIB, and SMS. They also serve in various governance roles in these organizations and in editor and editorial board roles at leading journals. SMG faculty teach core and elective courses in strategic and international management at all levels, including bachelors, masters, PhD, and (executive) MBA programs, and the department is strongly committed to course development and innovative teaching.
