    Kühne Logistics University (KLU) is seeking to appoint a new faculty member for Sustainable Operations. This is the result of a collaboration with Kühne + Nagel, the world's largest freight forwarding company. The professorship will be a full-time tenure-track position (for assistant or associate professors) or tenured (for full professors). The rank will depend on the candidate's qualifications, experience, and reputation. The position will be based at KLU in the HafenCity district of Hamburg.

     

    A research Center in this subject area was recently established at KLU, recognizing the importance now attached to environmental and social sustainability in business, government, and academia. Logistics is a major source of emissions, and its environmental impact expected to increase substantially in future decades in the absence of new initiatives. Academic institutions, working closely with companies and governments, have a key role to play in researching these initiatives and equipping present and future decision-makers with the skills they need to implement them. KLU wishes to be at the forefront of research and education in sustainable logistics. This new appointment will play a key role in helping us to achieve this goal.

    Candidates are invited to send their applications comprising curriculum vitae, publication list, teaching portfolio (including details on teaching experience and student feedback), and research statement (including a description of research and publication projects in progress) to

    klu-jobs@m.personio.de .

     

    Please send the documents by 15 November, 2020.

     

    KLU is an Equal Opportunity Employer committed to a diverse faculty, staff, and student body and welcomes all applicants.
