Research Assistant (m/f/d)

(E13 TV-G-U, 50%-part time)

for an initial duration of three years, starting the earliest possible date. The salary grade is set in accordance with the standards of the public service wage agreement of Goethe University Frankfurt (TV-G-U).

Our research focus

In a research project, funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), we plan to examine how firms can combat short-term stock market pressures and continue to innovate in high-risk projects. Specifically, we seek to investigate how firms can create sustainable marketing innovation strategies and which internal and external (marketing) factors help firms doing so. As such, the proposed research project is inherently interdisciplinary and connects research in marketing, innovation, finance, and strategy.

Your challenge

Besides the usual tasks involved in the management of the chair, the primary focus will be to work on research questions related to marketing innovation strategies. We expect you to write an outstanding dissertation yet also support you in achieving this goal by providing a modern research environment with excellent contacts to the international scientific community and an enthusiastic team of colleagues. We also encourage participation in the graduate school course program. Given our ambitious objectives to successfully publish the results of the project in the field’s top journals, we are looking for a candidate who can work independently and creatively.

Your profile

You have an excellent academic degree in economics, business, or a related subject, ideally very good mathematical or statistical knowledge, a high command of English, and most importantly, are curious, motivated, and enjoy scientific work. Furthermore, you are able to work in a structured manner and can work well in teams.

Please submit your application, together with the usual credentials (CV, letter of motivation, and grade transcripts) electronically per email to Stephanie Entrup (stephanie.entrup[at]wiwi.uni-frankfurt[dot]de) no later than February 7th, 2020. Please compile all documents into one single attached PDF file and add “Application Research Assistant” in the subject line of your email.
