Qualification Details

We are seeking an Associate Professor with a PhD or equivalent qualification in industrial economics.

The hired candidate must have competence both within economics and engineering. Applied research related to industry at the intersection of technology and economics can compensate for a lack of engineering competence.

It is desirable that you have competency relatable to the green transition, preferably to renewable energy. This includes knowledge about theory, but also knowledge about institutions. Practical knowledge about the energy market is an advantage.

You must be able to document active, ongoing research at a high academic level and have the potential for future high-level research in the subject area.

 

It is expected that you have a reflective and conscientious attitude towards your own teaching and supervision. You must be able to document pedagogical and didactic skills relating to higher education, and basic skills in planning, evaluation and development of teaching and supervision. If you do not meet the competence requirement you must complete a university pedagogy course within a period of two years of the appointment start date. The course will be provided by the university.

Norwegian is the language mainly used at UiS. The working and teaching languages are Norwegian and English. It is expected that you can teach and supervise in Norwegian (equivalent to level B2), or another Scandinavian language, within a period of three years from accession. If required, you will be offered a Norwegian course paid for by the university.

The following attributes are also desirable

  • ability to involve and engage students in teaching where the course's objectives, content and assessment situations are closely interlinked
  • experience and/or interest in the development of varied learning methods and digital tools in teaching
  • research results published in recognised publications, and references indicating progression in research and publications
  • ability to initiate, obtain external funding for, lead and carry out research and development projects
  • experience of partnerships with businesses relevant to the subject area
  • contributed to the use of research-based knowledge in society and that you can refer to results from innovation and the commercialization of research
  • demonstrated the ability to build and preserve professional networks - regionally, nationally and internationally
  • ability to manage heavy workload, inquisitiveness and motivation to contribute to the development of academic and interdisciplinary collaboration at the university
  • good teamwork and communication skills, and ability to contribute to a constructive working environment

Responsibilities/Job Description

The subject area for the position is industrial economics, with emphasis on renewable energy and the green transition. The position is linked to the master program in industrial economics.

The hired candidate will primarily teach and supervise students at bachelor's, master's and PhD level within the subject area, conduct research and disseminate research results within relevant research areas at the department, and contribute to the development of partnerships with business.

The development/use of digital and diverse learning methods, innovation, value creation based on results from research, and academic development work, will be included in the position.

The general job description for Associate Professors at UiS gives a more detailed account of relevant duties.
