The main tasks of the professorship will be research, acquisition and education with a focus on innovation, implementation and evaluation of management and organisation of health services. Practical relevance of scientific research is highly valued and that research should be both nationally and internationally oriented.

The educational activities encompass the development, coordination and teaching of courses and thesis guidance, primarily in our bachelor and master program Health Care Management. The professor is expected to develop and maintain a national and international network with key players in both the field of health science and health practice.
As a chair the candidate is responsible for heading a department consisting of approximately 20-25 fte personnel of a variety of disciplines. This responsibility involves financial and HR management and strengthening the research focus of the department.
