Working in academia


Career seminar for PhD students

Academic careers are excellent in many ways, not least business school professorships. But landing an attractive academic position as a newly graduated PhD is difficult. In this seminar, we reflect on potential dos and don’ts in the international job market. Johan Wiklund will share his insights based on recent placements of his PhD students, and his hiring of assistant professors. What separates those who make it from those who don’t? Anna Brattström will share insights about the Swedish system for seeking external funding.

Johan Wiklund is Professor of Entrepreneurship at Whitman School of Management, Syracuse University, USA, and Visiting Professor at Lund University, Sweden. His research interests include entrepreneurship and mental health as well as the entry, performance, and exit of entrepreneurial firms. He is considered a leading authority in entrepreneurship research and Editor-in-Chief for Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice.
