    Dear friends and colleagues,

    We have a job opening at my university (see the official posting below). I thought it could be of interest to you. As far as I have understood, the specification of the professorship is fairly flexible as long as it is about strategy. It would be great to have a Strategy-as-Practice researcher as a colleague here in Zurich.



    The Faculty of Business, Economics and Informatics of the University of Zurich invites applications for a

    Professorship in Evidence-Based Strategic Management (Open Rank)

They should also have experience in teaching undergraduate and graduate-level courses in management and empirical methods relevant for evidence-based strategic management research. They should be willing to teach such courses as well as other courses that are aligned with their research interests. The performance evaluation will be undertaken in line with DORA and the Open Science Policy of the University of Zurich.

    The professorship will become an active part within the Institute of Business Administration ( at the University of Zurich.

    Through its educational and research objectives, the University of Zurich aims at attracting leading international researchers who are willing to contribute to its development and to strengthening its reputation as a future-oriented university with excellence in research and innovative research-based teaching.
