Job description

It will be based on both quantitative and qualitative methods.

The position is mainly devoted to research (90-100 per cent of full time) but limited tasks in education can be expected, in areas such as organizational studies and strategic management.


A required qualification is a PhD in a relevant social scientific area, with a profound experience of studies of scientific dynamics and organization.
