Recruitment of academic staff: An institutional logics perspective

The employment process in universities consists of a tangle of contradictions. This can lead to the person who is eventually hired not being the one the business primarily needs.

This is shown by a study carried out by industrial doctoral student Malin Henningsson and Professor Lars Geschwind, head of Learning in STEM  . The main author Malin Henningsson, who also works at The Knowledge Foundation  , has interviewed 14 heads of various universities about the employment process for the permanent positions.
