The School of Business and Economics, one of five faculties at Linnaeus University, engages in research, education, and collaboration in the fields of business administration, economics, statistics, and tourism studies. The School of Business and Economics is accredited by AACSB.

Globalisation and new technologies, such as automation, digitalisation, and AI, bring both challenges and opportunities, leading to the emergence of entirely new forms of leadership and organisation, as well as products and services; business models; markets; and competitors. For this to contribute to a positive societal development, understanding the change in businesses and public operations is crucial. Research shows that key factors involve innovation and entrepreneurship; leadership; organisation; financing; robust supply chains; and new forms of marketing.

These are areas where the School of Business and Economics plays a vital role. We are now investing heavily to tailor our activities to the challenges presented by the technological shift and in future-oriented teaching and research environments where big data, digital tools, and methods are used interactively to create and transfer new knowledge.

Given this, there has been an increased demand for research competence, doctoral supervision, and teaching in leadership, organisation, and human resource management (HRM). Therefore, we are looking for a distinguished senior lecturer who wants to join us on this developmental journey!
