An outstanding opportunity is available for an innovative researcher in the field of Information Systems. The successful candidate will conduct research as part of the Woolworths Chair for Retail Innovation, related to delivering and managing innovation in retail across technology, processes and people.

The term of the fellowship is 3 years, with the salary range depending on qualifications and expertise. The position is open to Australian and International applicants.

The Postdoctoral Fellow will work in the Woolworths Chair for Retail Innovation initiative at the Information Systems School at Queensland University of Technology. The initiative's objective is to conduct applied research on innovations in business, processes and technology-based systems, and the management of innovation processes in organisations. The domain of the initiative is the retail sector, especially Supermarket operations. Topics will address business, management, process, service and IT-components, and thus require holistic and multi-disciplinary approaches to research.
The project is driven by a demand to deliver innovative transformations to retail operations, processes and technology, with a focus being on customer-centric value provision. At the core of this demand are the two foci of (a) exploring and exploiting technology-enabled innovation potential in the retail sector, and (b) creating a culture of innovation within retail organisations.

The School aims to be the nationally leading and an internationally competitive research entity in the area of applied Information Systems. QUT's Information Systems School was the only IS research group that was ranked with a perfect '5-out-of-5' score in the 2010 Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) assessment. The School has an unconditional focus on rigorous research with high practical impact and has a demonstrated track record in high-quality research published in the field's top journals.
