Associate Professor in Sustainable Production Systems

KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as in architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.

Do you want to build a world-leading research environment?
KTH is now developing a brand new research and education department in the subject area of Sustainable production. During 2016 and 2017 we are recruiting new faculty members: among others three Professors, four Associate Professors and one Assistant Professor in the areas of Production management, Production logistics and Strategic maintenance and dependability. In addition, there are resources to recruit Ph.D. students, industrial Ph.D. students, Adjunct Professors and Postdocs. For the new department, a new, attractive and functional campus is being built in the Northern city centre of Södertälje, 30 km south of Stockholm, the capital of Sweden. The focused effort on Sustainable production at KTH is a joint initiative with Scania and AstraZeneca, both with large, expanding and globally competitive production sites in close vicinity of the new campus area.
