BI holds the three most prestigious international quality accreditations – AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA. BI is organised as an independent foundation whose purpose is teaching and research. All profits are used to strengthen BI's academic- and learning environment.

As a new faculty you are expected to contribute significantly to the department’s research and teaching environment and to the overall research strategy of the School.

We are hiring within the fields of marketing management with a focus on digital marketing communication. The department seeks applicants who have and will contribute to research on consumer responses to marketing activities. The candidate’s research should target the top tier journals within marketing.

As a faculty you are expected to teach and supervise students at Bachelor’s, Master’s, Executive and/or PhD level and to carry out individual and group-based research of the highest international standard. 50% of your time will be dedicated to research.

The position offers membership of the Norwegian Public Service Pension Fund and BI offers competitive salary, benefits, and good research support.

Your qualifications

Applicants must possess international research qualifications and good teaching skills. Since a large part of the department's education portfolio is aimed at groups that speak Norwegian and are employed by Norwegian organizations, those appointed will be encouraged to learn the Norwegian language and to acquire knowledge of Nordic models of working life within four to five years. In line with BI's guidelines, candidates lacking sufficient pedagogical competence must acquire this within two years of appointment.

The required qualifications are elaborated below:

1. Research qualifications

The department is ambitious in terms of research publications. Applicants are expected to have a well-documented international research profile with top-tier peer-reviewed marketing outlets or related areas.

The applicant must have produced and published a significant body of independent, high-quality research, and should demonstrate significant progression after the completion of their PhD.

Emphasis will be put on recent productivity and take into account the number of years at present academic level. The candidate is also expected to have a significant amount of relatively well developed manuscripts in progress targeting top-tier outlets.

Collaboration with private business and/or the public sector, including R&D projects, research dissemination or research-based counselling will count positively to the decision.

All relevant publications (published articles, R&Rs, and manuscripts under development) should be appended to the application.

2. Didactical/pedagogical competences and experiences

Teaching and advising students at different levels are main activities of an associate professor at the Department of Marketing. The Department is ambitious in terms of our teaching program and the applicant should demonstrate good teaching and supervising skills at both bachelor and master level. A qualified applicant must have experience from teaching several courses at different levels and on different topics.

Due to the ongoing innovation and development processes at BI, experience with innovation and management of academic programs will be evaluated positively.

All applicants should submit a teaching portfolio, where didactical/pedagogical competencies are carefully documented. This can be included in the CV document.

Qualified applicants may be called in for an interview, a trial lecture or a seminar presentation. BI reserves the right not to appoint applicants who are academically qualified if they are found not to satisfy other explicit requirements with respect to pedagogical skills, teaching experience, work experience in or in cooperation with the business sector or inter-personal skills.
