Applicants need to demonstrate potential for research and teaching excellence in aspects related to any facet of retailing (defined in its broadest sense). BSRM is particularly interested in candidates with novel and integrative research programs and strong methodology expertise (quantitative and/or qualitative). The appointed individual will be expected to collaborate with industry practitioners and policy makers to tackle some of the challenges faced by the retail sector, including digitization, competition and globalization. Moreover, we are also interested in understanding how the retail sector can be used to address the grand challenges facing the world and enable sustainable consumption and healthier societies.
