We take theoretical as well as methodological perspectives on supply chain management with the overall purpose of understanding how digital transformation and other industrial changes define the future supply chain systems.
We are an influential research group within maritime management and logistics, healthcare operations management and sustainable freight transport and logistics. In parallel, we are strengthening our research within production and services. Thus, if these topics are your areas of interest, you could be our next Associate Professor or DTU Tenure Track Assistant Professor in Operations & Supply Chain Management. You will be part of a talented and ambitious team, which is situated at the very heart of DTU's mission to develop and create value for the benefit of society.
The digitalisation of production and service systems creates a new breeding ground for increasingly complex planning problems within operations and supply chain management. Our new associate or assistant professor shall perform research to assist the production and service sectors in developing decision-support models to improve efficiency while actively pursuing the green transition agenda. Our research is based on methodologies from operations research, simulation modelling, process optimisation etc. Thus, our new professor is expected to come from a background in either engineering, computer science, or economics.
