One moment Tobias Otterbring ...2017-06-19
Doctor of Psychology at CTF, Service Research Center at Karlstad University. This spring you defended your doctoral dissertation in psychology, what will you do next?
– At the moment I am working on getting articles from my doctoral thesis published in scientific journals, and I am also preparing to move to Denmark.
How is the work with the articles progressing?
– You can say it is moving along well. One of the articles is accepted for publication in one of the most highly ranked scientific journals in marketing, the Journal of Marketing Research. I have been working on the article for over five years, so it was nice to finalize it in such a great way.
What are you going to do in Denmark?
– I will start working as a lecturer in marketing at Aarhus University. Aarhus University is an internationally recognized university and is usually included in the rankings of the top 100 universities in the world, so it is an honor to have been offered a position there in the fierce competition with over 60 other applicants.
Does this mean that you will be leaving CTF and Karlstad University?
– No, I am also in the start-up process of a two year project together with Erik Wästlund and Pernille K Andersson here at CTF, where we will study various issues related to digitalization relevant to the retail-, and visitor industry. This means that I will still be a part of CTF and will visit Karlstad University a couple of times a semester.
