The Department of Technology, Management and Economics (DTU Management) at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) invites applications for a position as Professor in Management Science with focus on decision science in healthcare.
The position as professor is a permanent faculty post, part of the division of Management Science. The position is also part of the Centre for Optimization Technology for Clinical Pathways co-funded by DTU and Region Zealand. You will be affiliated with Slagelse Hospital, where you will be offered the opportunity to work physically in the clinic. The position will provide you the opportunity to contribute significantly to establishing stronger ties between the theories and methods of decision science and the challenges met within the healthcare system. Attached to the position is also a PhD grant to support the research collaboration.
Responsibilities and qualifications Healthcare systems are highly complex production systems calling for efficient planning of physical as well as human resources to offer the best possible care for patients. Such production systems cover the end-to-end logistics chain spanning the pre-hospital, the inpatient and the outpatient phases. An increase in the number of patients in healthcare systems combined with tight budgetary constraints demands a more efficient use of resources. To address the increasing challenges from short-term hospitalization, resource optimization, clinical specialization, and increased demand for specialized medical treatment in hospitals, the focus will be on the design of methods and technologies for optimising clinical pathways, including clinical workflows, clinical logistics, patient scheduling, staff scheduling, as well as the design and pilot testing of technologies for optimized coordination and communication.
Scientifically, experience within the following areas is relevant:
Computer-aided decision support for clinical pathways, healthcare planning and clinical logistics.
Methods from Operations Research and Operations Management for studying clinical optimization problems.
Design and implementation of simulation-based methods like discrete-event, agent-based models and system dynamics.
Data science and AI methods for resource optimization—deterministic as well as dynamic and stochastic.
Management Science considers it a strength to combine development of new theory with focus on real-life applications. The division is team-oriented, and the professor is expected to support this through peer activities.
This position requires strong experience with interdisciplinary academic work. You will therefore bring the following:
A PhD in technical or natural sciences incorporating management science (operations research and/or operations management).
A high level of original scientific production at the highest international level that has contributed to further development of the subject area in question.
Experience in research management, including attracting grants and securing funding for new projects, supervision of early career researchers, handling managerial tasks in national or international projects, conferences etc.
Innovation and industrial collaboration with the interest in supporting the application of research results in commercial contexts, etc.
Experience with working in a healthcare setting will be seen as an advantage.
You are expected to take a lead role in teaching at the BEng, BSc, MSc, and PhD levels. If you have an international background, DTU can provide Danish language courses enabling you to teach in Danish within 2-3 years.
You will be assessed against the responsibilities and qualifications stated above and the following general criteria:
Documented experience and quality of teaching and curriculum development
Research impact and experience, funding track record and research vision
International impact and experience
Innovativeness, including commercialization and collaboration with industry
Leadership, collaboration, and interdisciplinary skills
Salary and terms of employment The appointment will be based on the collective agreement with the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations. The salary for the position will be determined by the applicants qualifications and in agreement with the relevant union. Further information on qualification requirements and job content may be found in the Ministerial Order on Job Structure for Academic Staff at Universities.
The position in offered as a full employment at DTU under the cooperation program between DTU and Region Zealand of Denmark. The position is offered under the condition that you will work from two workplaces, which means that you have to divide your time between presence at both DTU campus in Lyngby and at Slagelse Hospital.
Representatives from Region Zealand Denmark will be part of the hiring process.
Further information Further information may be obtained from Head of Management Science Professor Jesper Larsen, tel.: +45 4525 3385, email: email@example.com.
