Professor of Sociology - working life and organization

The Department of Sociology has a long tradition of outstanding and internationally acclaimed research in theory development and empirical grounded studies. The research environment is characterized by a self-evident and well-thought-out methodological curiousity, where different methods and methodological considerations are explored and studied critically. The department, together with the faculty, wants to further strengthen such an environment with a professor of sociology with a focus on working life and organization. We are therefore looking for a person with a very good analytical eye for empirical material, as well as deep and broad knowledge in the field of working life and work organization.
