The Department of Management Engineering invites applications for a full-time position as Associate or Assistant Professor within the field of implementation and performance management. The position is based in the Management Science (MS) division, in the Implementation and Performance Management (IPM) research group, that aims to advance knowledge and practice everywhere humans interact with digital technologies.

Our focus has so far been to support workplaces building the routines and practices that enable knowledge to be retained and used rather than being left and lost. We now search for new knowledge about how managers and employees can use digitalization to generate new knowledge sharing processes and make informed and better decisions, ensuring both organizational performance, continuous development and employee well-being.

We therefore invite applicants to a position as assistant/associate professor to explore new knowledge sharing methods and knowledge analytics especially in new work practices within knowledge work.

Responsibilities and tasks 

The candidate should focus on knowledge and knowledge sharing and how it can be organized and managed integrating the human aspect (behaviour and work processes) as part of generating, collecting, transfer and sharing of knowledge. Our key interest is especially in the design of the knowledge sharing processes in the field of broader analytics and decision science especially within Knowledge work. The candidate can have an Information Systems background and has preferably done research on:

  • How to manage the knowledge that corporations have increased access to and gather, and how the increasing amount of data supports decisions in the organization
  • How to make that data actionable
  • How to integrate decision science with Knowledge Management

In particular, the candidate will contribute to the understanding of the knowledge sharing process, including organizational and managerial requirements needed for implementing changes. This research could include development and use of models for successful implementation and process evaluation. We therefore expect that the candidate has worked with qualitative research methods. Knowledge and experience with quantitative research methods would be an advantage.

We expect that the candidate contributes actively to the department’s production of knowledge through research and publications in recognized international top journals, and that you are willing to engage in new issues, if required. The department has strong cooperation with industry, commissioning institutions and government research institutes. The applicant should be willing to contribute actively to these activities.

Research-based teaching
The IPM groups’ teaching obligations are mainly concentrated on master level activities, but also includes courses on bachelor level. In our bachelor and masters courses, we teach management and organisation, business modelling, implementation and performance management, working environment and occupational health and safety.

We also supervise semester-4 projects, bachelor projects and master thesis projects mainly from the Industrial Engineering and Management program.
