    Assistant Professor in Marketing, B-2-B

    Copenhagen Business School invites applications for a vacant Assistant Professorship in Business-to-Business (B-2-B) at the Department of Marketing.

    It is the ambition of the Department that the ideal applicant has a specific research interest in either or both, business-to-business services and business-to-business e-business/social media. While the B-2-B group works with both, qualitative and quantitative research methods, it is an advantage for the applicant to document application of state-of-the-art quantitative methods.

    B-2-B (BMP) has a strong record in conceptual developments and empirical research in business relationship quality and business relationship value as well as in managing business relationships and networks. We focus on international conferences and international publications while supporting local and regional business through teaching and training. While some of our work requires Danish language skills, most research and teaching as well as project work is conducted in English.
