The LUT School of Business and Management (LBM) is looking for a post-doctoral researcher to join its research team on the GREENRENEW (Green Hydrogen and CO2 for Industry Renewal) research platform. The research platform conducts interdisciplinary research and research projects that focus on studying sustainable energy transition pathways to a carbon-neutral energy system. The post-doctoral researcher will work on research projects as a project manager and a researcher in collaboration with the LBM faculty and researchers from other disciplines. The research team at LBM is led by Professor Kirsimarja Blomqvist.

We are looking for a motivated person with a can-do attitude who is passionate about sustainability transitions and cross-boundary collaboration for the resolution of grand societal challenges. Therefore, we highly value evidence of successful project work and research collaboration/networking. We expect evidence of successful international publishing, and experience in the acquisition of competitive external funding (e.g. Business Finland, Academy of Finland, EU) is an advantage. Furthermore, we are looking for applicants with strong skills in research communication and dissemination (offline and online).

The post-doctoral researcher is required to have a doctoral degree in a field relevant to the position, such as business administration or industrial management/engineering, a demonstrated ability for scientific work, and the ability to work with different industrial and societal stakeholders. Expertise in the energy sector will be considered a plus. 

What we offer

  • An opportunity to work in an interdisciplinary team of passionate academic experts and develop your academic expertise in cross-disciplinary research on cross-boundary collaboration for sustainability transitions
  • An opportunity to make an impact on industry and society through research projects
  • A fixed-term contract of 2 + 2 years 

The work will start with a six-month trial period on LUT’s Lappeenranta campus.

The salary is determined according to the salary system for university teaching and research personnel. The pay will include an individual pay component based on performance and competence. The monthly salary of post-doctoral researchers who have recently defended their doctoral thesis starts from 3804 euros a month (depending on the qualifications and experience of the candidate). 

The position will be filled as soon as a suitable candidate is found. Please submit your application together with the required attachments via the university's online application system.

Please fill out the online application form and attach the following documents:

  • Your CV
  • A motivation letter including your own view regarding the future of cross-boundary collaboration for sustainability transitions
  • A copy of your academic degree certificate and transcript of records. If the original documents are not in English, Finnish or Swedish, each document must be accompanied by an official certified translation into English or Finnish.
