Job description and qualifications

The surrounding society increasingly demands research into the legal framework for development, deployment and decommissioning of new technologies. The Department of Law wishes to strengthen its research efforts in this field.

The successful applicant is expected to contribute significantly to the department’s research and teaching focusing on the legal framework for development, deployment and decommissioning of new technologies, and to its overall research strategy in the field of digitisation. We expect the applicant to teach and supervise students at Bachelor’s, Master’s and PhD level and that the candidate – independently and jointly with others – contribute to developing the academic field in question through research of high international quality. The teaching involved will primarily be at the BSc and MSc in Business Administration and Commercial Law programmes as well as at the Master of Laws programme. The applicant must therefore be capable of teaching in Danish or in the course of the three-year period acquire the skills to teach and examine in Danish.

The successful candidate must be willing to actively pursue the department objective of securing increased external funding.
