Vacancies are available for associate professors in Organizational Psychology/Organizational Behaviour at BI Norwegian Business School in the Department of Leadership and Organizational Behaviour. The positions will be associated with the Organizational Psychology section in the Department of Leadership and Organizational Behaviour.
The positions require a Norwegian PhD, or a PhD from elsewhere with equivalent scope and quality as a Norwegian PhD, and within the subject area of organizational psychology or a related field of study. The successful applicant must have formal qualifications in an organizational psychology relevant field. 50 % of the position is to be used for research. In line with BI's guidelines, candidates lacking sufficient pedagogical competence must acquire this within two years of appointment.
Candidates for one of the positions are expected to have qualifications in methods for behavioural change (counselling, leadership development, team development), individual differences, psychological testing, conflicts and bullying, management and motivation.
Candidates for another position are expected to have qualifications in cognitive psychology, especially decision making. Knowledge about simulations and experimental methodology will be particularly relevant and also knowledge about big data and machine learning is desirable.
Candidates with qualifications in the field of social psychology, such as negotiations, diversity, group- and team dynamics as well as other organizational psychological issues are welcome to apply and will also be considered.
Much of the thesis advice that the department provides requires quantitative competency, and we are therefore seeking candidates with knowledge in quantitative methods. Furthermore, one of the positions requires that the applicant has qualifications as a psychologist (licensed psychologist or counselling psychologist) or equivalent. The positions require international publishing experience within the subject areas described above. Relevant associate professor candidates must have completed independent research and must have published in international journals, also after completing their PhD. Other consultancy and publishing experience, management of research projects and contributions in research projects will also be taken into account. In addition, any administrative experience, management competence and business knowledge will be taken into account.
The Department of Leadership and Organizational Behaviour has 39 permanent employees and 10 PhD students. The department and the Organizational Psychology section offers training in organizational behaviour and management at the bachelor, master (Master of Science, Executive Master of Management, EMBA) and doctoral levels. Successful candidates should expect to teach as well as provide thesis advice related to the school's bachelor's degrees in Organizational Psychology, HR and Leadership, the school's Master of Science programme in Leadership and Organizational Psychology and the school’s Executive Education programmes and courses. BI is seeking people who have well developed communication skills, capacity to communicate research results and to relate research results to practical concerns that are typical in executive education. Candidates must be proficient in English, both spoken and written.
Due to the fact that a large part of the department's education portfolio is aimed at groups that speak Norwegian and are employed by Norwegian organizations, those appointed will be encouraged to learn the Norwegian language and to acquire knowledge of Nordic models of working life within two to three years. Women are particularly encouraged to apply.
Qualifications will be evaluated according to standard procedures for academic and educational positions at universities and other research institutions. The position offers membership in the Norwegian Public Service Pension Fund.
Qualified applicants may be called in for an interview, trial lecture or seminar presentation. BI Norwegian Business School reserves the right not to appoint applicants who are academically qualified if they are found not to satisfy other explicit requirements, with respect to pedagogical skills, teaching experience, work experience in or cooperation with the business sector or interpersonal skills.
