Karlstad Business School was founded in 2009, and comprises the disciplines working life science, business administration, information systems, law, economics and statistics. We offer courses and programmes at all levels, supported by robust research in the disciplines as well as in multidisciplinary research groups, of which the largest is CTF, the Service Research Center (kau.se/en/ctf). Substantial national and international networks provide a good basis for new research projects and commissioned courses.

We are now seeking a committed senior lecturer who wants to contribute to the continued development of the discipline.
