The place of work will be the Department of Border Region Studies in Sønderborg.

Associate Professorship in International Business-to-Business Relations and Supply Chain Management

Job description

At the Department of Border Region Studies (IFG), University of Southern Denmark, Campus Sønderborg, applications are invited for a position as associate professor within the priority area Business-to-Business Relations & Supply Chain Management.
Expected start is December 1st, 2011 or soon thereafter.

The Department is situated in the beautiful premises at Alsion on the shore facing Sønderborg and the island of Als. From here there is only 30 minutes by car to the Danish-German border, only 35 minutes by plane to Copenhagen. Hamburg, Kiel, Aarhus and Odense can be reached by car within 1½ – 2 hours. Sønderborg has a rich cultural life and is surrounded by pretty landscapes inviting for recreational activities. The SDU-Campus Sønderborg houses Social Sciences, Humanities as well as Technical Sciences.

The Department of Border Region Studies (IFG) is rooted in the unique history of the Southern Danish border region. At the same time, the department has a close relationship with the business community and the cultural institutions of the region. The comparative aspect including other (border) regions in Europe is particularly strong within the regional studies and within the border region studies. Due to a strong focus on comparative aspects the department has developed a broad international research network within Europe. In addition, the department has a special obligation to carrying out research relating to the German minority in Southern Jutland.

The IFG has three research priority groups: 1) Business-to-Business Relations & Supply Chain Management; 2) Regional Economics and the Spatial Dimension of Economics, and 3) People and Society in Border Regions. Research results disseminate in English, Danish and German in monographs, in national as well as international peer reviewed journals, and to the general public in the regional and national printed and digital media.

International Business-to-Business Relations and Supply Chain Management

The research priority group in Business-to-Business (B2B) Relations and Supply Chain Management (SCM) is still in the first phase of being established and manned. Its aim is to create new knowledge as to the interaction of the businesses. The focus is on relations in the total chain of activities from sub-supplier to the end-customer. The research in Supply Chain Management (SCM) is concentrated on international marketing. In order to create the desirable coverage it is therefore necessary to consolidate the competences in B2B marketing and create new competences within especially SCM and Logistics – important subjects at the Master of Science programme in Sønderborg.

The research in B2B as well as in SCM has natural interfaces with the other business-, regional- and macroeconomic research areas at IFG.
