Qualification Details

The successful candidate is ambitious and will have an international profile in any area of relevance to the research unit, though preferably within focal areas such as market systems and market studies, market emergence, anthropology of technonology, medical anthropology, and health and technology. A substantial record of research publications in highly recognized journals in one or more of the research areas mentioned above is expected, as well as the potential to make advances both empirically and theoretically. Capacity to develop and apply for large external grants is essential. Further information can be obtained in the department’s qualification guidelines. Since the research of the unit is oriented toward the type of marketing research labeled Consumer Culture Theory (CCT), candidates working in this or related disciplinary research fields of consumption and market studies are preferred.

The candidates must be able to demonstrate teaching experience at varied university levels and be able to deliver high quality teaching within topics such as consumption studies, marketing and branding, globalization, and qualitative research methods. Successful candidates will be engaged in teaching in the B.Sc. Marketing and Management Anthropology programme, and in our Business Administration programmes at the bachelor and master level. Candidates are expected to be able to teach courses based on CCT, anthropological, and sociological approaches to consumption and markets and to supervise bachelor and master theses in the area of consumer research and marketing.

Beyond the research publication record and teaching experience, successful candidates will be expected to contribute actively to the social and academic lives at the department as well as participate in the guidance of doctoral students and junior faculty. Also, we expect active and constructive participation in the university's academic administration, and it is an advantage if the candidates have experience in securing external research funding, and in establishing strong ties with the international research community. Furthermore, the right applicants should thrive in a multi-disciplinary environment that seeks to contribute to a broad academic dialogue.

The successful candidate should have a Ph. D. degree within social sciences or a cross-disciplinary PhD with a significant social science contribution.

If the successful candidates are not fluent in Danish, (s)he will be expected to learn Danish within a period of three years. Within this timeframe applicants are expected to master Danish at a level which enables them to correct Danish exam papers and read administrative documents. Within a five-year period, applicants must be able to document Danish language skills at the B2 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.

The department believes in fostering a stimulating and inspiring environment for both faculty members and students. Also, the department addresses social challenges and knowledge exchange with society through high-quality study programmes and genuine engagement with external partners and society at large.
