The project is funded by the Velux Foundation, and will commence in November 2020. Additional information on the project can be found here.

The Post Doc position is focused on the legitimacy concerns towards private-sector engagement in humanitarian action. Humanitarian organizations increasingly collaborate with global firms, and various platforms have been created to facilitate such collaborations, such as the UN Connecting Business Initiative.

PhD position on ‘COVID-19: Effectiveness and ethics in local collaboration for health emergencies’

CBS invites applicants for a PhD position on business and humanitarianism to critically examine how business-humanitarian collaboration is organized in acute crisis situations and to what effects. To this end, we invite PhD proposals that focus on the emergence and organization of business-humanitarian collaborations in the context of COVID-19.

A central challenge during health emergencies is to activate and coordinate a rapid and effective emergency response. Often, coordinated global emergencyresponses attract most attention. However, in practice, local emergencyresponses are at least as vital. As could for example be seen in the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic or the West African Ebola outbreak, local emergency responses often involve emergent collaborations between humanitarian organizations and locally operating businesses.

While locally operating businesses often play a crucial role in humanitarian response, we know relatively little about how business-humanitarian collaborations form during health emergencies, and how such collaborations are organized. Similarly, our understanding of the longer-term effects of the reconfiguration of relations between the private and the humanitarian sector, as well as the ethical challenges involved, are still poorly understood. We therefore invite applicants to develop a research project to study the emergence and organization of local business-humanitarian collaborations in the context of COVID-19. Examples of relevant questions the project could address are:

  • How can local business-humanitarian initiatives be organized to ensure an effective emergency response?
  • How can such collaboration be organized ethically, i.e. in ways that uphold humanitarian principles?
  • How do cross-sectoral emergency responses maintain, challenge or redefine existing business-society relations and to what effects?
  • How are collaborative relations maintained or reassessed and, if deemed necessary, reverted after a crisis ends?

Interested candidates are invited to submit a brief PhD proposal with their application package (max. 5 pages). We are particularly interested in applicants who have strong affinity with the humanitarian sector and who can draw on expertise from relevant fields, such as humanitarianism, political science, law, or business studies. The project proposal should be theoretically grounded in a way that leverages applicants’ expertise and contributes to our understanding of cross-sectoral collaboration in the context of humanitarian emergencies. The proposal should also include a well-considered indication of the intended research design, such as a description of the research context and potential cases to be selected.

The PhD position is part of the project ‘Private-sector Engagement in Humanitarian Action’ (HUMAC), led by Associate Professor Jasper Hotho and Assistant Professor Verena Girschik. The HUMAC project examines how business-humanitarian collaboration can be organized in an ethical, effective, and sustainable manner.To this end, the project team examines the challenges of business-humanitarian collaboration in a variety of crisis contexts. The aimis to generate urgently needed research-based knowledge and theoretical insights into the organizational dynamics, complications, and solutions of business-humanitarian collaboration in crisis contexts. The project is funded by the Velux Foundation, and will commence in November 2020. Additional information on the project can be found here.

The project team will consists of the principal investigators, a Post Doc, and a PhD student. The PhD will work in close collaboration with the rest of the project team and will be eligible for considerable financial support for field work and data collection.

The PhD will be affiliated with the Department of International Economics, Government and Business (EGB) at CBS. Details about the department can be found here.

The Department will give priority to applicants with high grades from their universities. Applicants need to have obtained a B for their master thesis on the EU ECTS grading scale (a 10 on the 7-point Danish scale). For comparison, please see the following EU grade conversion table: https://www.studyineurope.eu/grades.

The three-year PhD programme at CBS allows you to conduct research under the supervision of CBS professors, supported by research training courses. The programme is highly international, and you are expected to participate in international research conferences and to spend time abroad as a visiting PhD student. See the CBS homepage for more information about the PhD programme, http://uk.cbs.dk/phd.

CBS PhD graduates are held in high esteem not only in academia and research institutions but also in government and business where their research qualifications are increasingly demanded. One third of CBS PhD graduates go on to employment outside universities and public research institutions. 

Copenhagen Business School has a broad commitment to the excellence, distinctiveness and relevance of its teaching and research programmes. Candidates who wish to join CBS should demonstrate enthusiasm for working in an organisation of this type (highlighting, for example, relevant business, educational and dissemination activities). 

For further information related to the project or the position, please contact Associate Professor Jasper Hotho (jh.egb@cbs.dk) or Assistant Professor Verena Girschik (vg.msc@cbs.dk).

PhD scholarship in blended learning and student engagement in management education

The Department of Management, Society and Communication (MSC) at Copenhagen Business School (CBS) invites applications for one vacant PhD scholarship within the field of blended learning and student engagement in management education. 

The recent increase in the use of technology-enabled learning in business and management studies has shown that technology can play an important role in management education but also that lack of student engagement can pose a challenge for student learning outcome. Our understanding of what causes this lack of engagement is still limited and more knowledge of students’ preferences, effectful designs and new roles for teachers are needed. We therefore invite applicants to develop a research project to study student engagement and disengagement in blended learning in management education. Applicants are required to develop a well-specified research proposal, which should be linked to student engagement with a special focus on blended learning. The project may include addressing topic areas like:

  • How can different blended learning designs support student (dis)engagement?
  • How can different forms of student engagement be measured using a mixture of quantitative and qualitative methods?
  • How do face-to-face and online components foster different forms of (dis)engagement and how do they interact?
  • What are the consequences of blended learning for (dis)engagement of instructors and how does this influence student learning?

We invite interested candidates from education, sociology, psychology and economics to apply but also candidates from other disciplines are encouraged to apply.

Ph.D fellowship in City and Regional Planning

Job description

The University of Stavanger invites applicants for a Ph.D fellowship City and Regional Planning at the Faculty of Science and Technology, Department of Safety, Economics and Planning. The postition is vacant from January 2021.

The theme for the Ph.D project is citizen power and pro-environmental behaviour for making future cities more sustainable and livable.

This is a trainee position that will give promising researchers an opportunity for academic development leading to a doctoral degree.

The appointment is for three years with research duties exclusively.

The position is funded by the EU (EAA  – Polish/Norwegian cooperation/ EEA and Norway Grants)

Information about the project:

The Ph.D candidate will be conducting research under the EAA and Norway grants, working with a consortium of Polish and Norwegian institutions on an applied research project, namely Greencoin. The consortium consists of the departments of architecture and computer science of Gdańsk University of Technology, the department of economics of SGH Warsaw School of Economics, Inicjatywa Miasto Association, the department of computer science, innovation, digital transformation and sustainability of Oslo Metropolitan University, the institute of education of the Maria Grzegorzewska University, and the Department ofSafety, Economics and Planning of University of Stavanger.

Encouraging pro-environmental behaviour has been argued as a critical factor to create sustainable, inclusive, and liveable cities. The role of pro-environmental behaviour is essential in explaining why, how, and to what extend people prefer to take ecological actions. This project addresses the present challenge regarding how to promote pro-environmental behaviours among urban citizens. Greencoin proposes an interactive experiment in rewarding citizens for pro-environmental behaviour and, in parallel, developing a marketplace mechanism where citizens can purchase environmentally friendly goods and services by using their rewards point. This can push communities to be green by facilitating and encouraging pro-environmental behaviours. In this project, the rewards system will be quantified into a value that can be used to purchase environmental products. The project will be customised to the Eastern European context and will include a nine-month pilot study in a Polish city. The project requires the candidate to have several mobility activities with Polish institutions during the project period.

The project consists of  work packages:

  • WP1 – Theoretical framework (Coordinator: SGH Warsaw School of Economics)
  • WP2 – Social feasibility (Oslo Metropolitan University)
  • WP3 – Quantification model (University of Stavanger)
  • WP4 – Technological feasibility (Gdańsk University of Technology)
  • WP5 – Pilot study (Inicjatywa Miasto Association)
  • WP6 – Analyses, evaluation, and up-scaling (Gdańsk University of Technology).

The tasks of the PhD project may include:

  • To identify the citizen power in the decision-making process in urban ecological planning.
  • To explore public participation and engagement on creating cities that can bring environmental impacts.
  • To define relevant ecological behaviours and actions that are substantial for making cities more sustainable and liveable.
  • To develop methods that can quantify the rewards from ecological actions made by the citizens into monetary value/point system as well as measure its environmental impacts.
  • To follow up the project progress with Polish and Norwegian partners. The candidate may be required to travel regularly to Polish cities within the project period.

PhD scholarship within the Research Project “Democratic Innovations in a Green Transition” in the Department of Political Science, University of Copenhagen.

The Department of Political Science at the University of Copenhagen invites applications for one 3-year PhD scholarship within the research project “Democratic Innovations in a Green Transition”. The research project is funded by the Independent Research Fund Denmark and the Department of Political Science, University of Copenhagen. The successful candidate will start February 1, 2021 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The project
“Democratic Innovations in a Green Transition” examines the impact of Denmark’s Citizens’ Climate Assembly on the Danish political system. The overall research question is: In what way might the assembly strengthen support for green transition policies, and to what extent will it affect existing channels for public debate and democratic decision-making? DIGT aims to answer these questions through a new framework that combines the study of deliberative democracy with affect theory, new materialism, and science and technology studies (STS). The project draws on both qualitative and quantitative methods, and it is organized around three subprojects, which together will allow the project to assess how Denmark’s Citizen Climate Assembly could, and can be expected to, contribute positively to a national green transition.

The PhD scholarship
The PhD scholarship is part of a subproject that examines the Citizen Climate Assembly’s model of democratic participation, with a focus on its capacity for empowerment and support for green transition policies. The PhD. project can make use of quantitative or qualitative/ethnographic methods and interviews to observe the assembly’s meetings. The subproject will also look at other uses of such mini-publics in order to specify the kind of deliberative practices that are most likely to generate support for green transition policies. The subproject is managed by Lars Tønder, Professor mso (Professor with special responsibilities).

Are you the right candidate?
Preferred applicants will have an interest in questions related to democratic theory, climate change, and citizenship. We are looking for candidates with strong analytical skills and proven methodological qualifications. The successful candidate must have strong Danish language skills.

The project and duties

The postdoctoral project focuses on the geography of changing tourist flows to Arctic Sweden and the extent to which these changes have created issues around unforeseen ‘tourism bubbles’, over-tourism and land-use competition. It requires the conduction of in-depth qualitative case studies of places where local populations experience negative impacts from tourism and land-use conflicts. It will include interviews with a broad range of local stakeholders, collection of basic statistics, and eventually reviews of local newspapers. Experience of thematic and narrative analysis and the use of qualitative analysis software is an advantage. The successful candidate will be responsible for planning and carrying out research in collaboration with two of the project researchers, Linda Lundmark and Anna Zachrisson.

About employment

The employment contract starts in February 2021, for the duration of two years full time (up to 20 % could be devoted to departmental duties like teaching). The postdoctoral research fellow will be expected to carry out the majority of work in Umeå and to participate in common project and departmental activities.

Requirements

In order to be qualified for the position, the person must have achieved a doctoral degree in geography with a focus on human geography or equivalent. The main assessment criteria for the appointment are documented research skills and academic track record. It is an advantage for the applicant to be able to perform and analyse qualitative research in a Scandinavian language. The applicant must be fluent in English. We especially value candidates with documented interest in social and ecological sustainability issues related to tourism and land use conflicts in rural areas. It is also a merit if the candidate is familiar with social, political and geographical discourses in Sweden, as a context for drivers and outcomes of over-tourism and land use conflicts.

In the selection process, value will be given to knowledge of geographical perspectives and research experiences of over-tourism and land use conflicts. Priority should be given to candidates who have completed their doctoral degree no more than three years before the closing date of the application. A candidate who has completed their degree prior to this time period may be taken into consideration if special circumstances exist. Postdoctoral students who will teach or supervise should have relevant education.

We also want you to be flexible in your work; you should take initiative and be able to work independently. We want you to take full responsibility for the task at hand. The work also requires you to collaborate with others within and outside Umeå University.

Application

Applications are accepted via system Varbi. The application should contain:

– a complete CV, including full publication list

– a research plan describing the applicant’s research interests in relation to the position (max. 3 pages)

– the applicant’s three most representative publications

For a number of years the research community that this PhD project will be embedded in at Roskilde University has played a key role in the development of research in sustainable food systems, and this PhD project will thus add a new element to the dynamic and interdisciplinary research community at Roskilde University. This research community has a number of national and international projects within, for example, living food lab projects, circular and regenerative food systems, food waste, development of methods, competencies and tools for sustainable transition in the agro-food system in collaboration with leading international partners.

The overall aim of this PhD project is: i) at a theoretical-methodological basis to map and characterize the urban food systems. This entails concepts for identifying, characterizing and qualifying the actors, discourses and stakeholders relevant to and for the urban food system or potentially vital in the developing innovation and collaboration and, ii) based on this, develop a concept for a sustainable, healthy and regenerative food system for this area and its greater system, in close connection to the FOOD TRAILS project and iii) contribute to the international research body on sustainable food systems and food studies.

This project is feeding into a strong multi-sector regional emphasis on food system developments and the specific research question and design must be developed as a part of the PhD project.

The research is expected to develop and apply theoretical-methodological perspectives informed by Science-Technology Studies (STS) and similar relevant socio-technical theories applied to the research area of food studies and agro-ecology. This includes strongholds on applying analytical perspectives as for example follow the actor, actor mapping and mapping of material/economic flows, as well as decision-making capacity throughout the governance system. The theoretical academic works is expected to be published in relevant international journals in cooperation with colleagues involved in the cooperation.

Post doc – Mapping and predicting human and environmental impacts on cultural heritage in Greenland under current and future climatic conditions

The Postdoc position is offered in connection with the joint Danish National Museum and Greenland National Museum & Archive’s research initiative “Activating Arctic Heritage” (AAH) supported by the Carlsberg Foundation.

The position is part of the work package “The loss of cultural heritage” that focuses on understanding, mapping and predicting natural and human induced impacts on archaeological sites within Greenland’s UNESCO properties Kujataa (South Greenland) and Aasivissuit-Nipisat (West Greenland).

Job description Preservation of archaeological sites and artefacts in Greenland are under pressure from a rapidly shifting climate, which also make them highly vulnerable to further influence from contemporary human activity. Rising air temperatures, permafrost thaw and fluctuations in precipitation are just some of the changes causing physical and chemical damage to archaeological sites and materials. These impacts in combination with increased visitor flows, sheep farming, plowing and drainage from farming activities constitute a great challenge for the long-term preservation of these cultural resources. In the work package a range of different methods will be applied to elucidate the coupling between climate change, human activity and land use, on the one hand, and site stability and artefact degradation on the other.

The work package has a strong focus on site investigations, remote sensing and computer modelling. The overall aim is to provide the fundamental knowledge and methods required to detect, monitor and quantify destructive threats to archaeological sites and artefacts within Greenland’s UNESCO properties. The Postdoc candidate will be responsible for UAV investigations, remote sensing and the development of suitable methods for identifying threats to archaeological sites (e.g. erosion, soil moisture, visitor foot paths, vegetation change).

The candidate is expected to produce GIS based risk assessments for the UNESCO properties under current and future climatic conditions.

The Postdoc position includes fieldwork in Greenland, and the candidate must contribute to practical work and logistics involved in this fieldwork.

Qualifications
The candidate should have a background in physical geography, landscape and/or environmental archaeology or similar and must hold a PhD related to these subject areas. The candidate must have significant and documented experience with Remote sensing techniques, GIS modelling and environmental sciences. The candidate should have a structured and analytical working approach and have experience with ArcGIS pro, satellite imagery such as Sentinel-2, MODIS products and climate reanalysis data. Furthermore, experience with UAV investigations and field work is a prerequisite and the candidate is expected to have a track record of working in collaborative projects. The candidate must have good communication skills in English and be willing to share knowledge and expertise with other members of the research group and contribute to the writing of academic papers.

Terms of salary and employment
The working hours are 37 hours a week. Salary, pension, and terms of employment will be in accordance with the agreement between the Danish Ministry of Finance and The Academics Central Organization in Denmark and Circular concerning the job structure for academic staff with research responsibilities in archives, libraries, museums etc. under the Danish Ministry of Culture. The appointment is for 2 years, starting on the 1st March 2021 or shortly thereafter. The place of work is at the Danish National Museum’s Section for Environmental Archaeology and Materials Science in Brede, Kgs. Lyngby, north of Copenhagen. The job will involve travel activity (approx. 4-6 weeks each year) in connection with fieldwork in Greenland.

Application procedure
The National Museum is actively working to promote equality among employees and encourages all qualified, regardless of personal background, to apply for the position. The application is to be submitted in English and must include the following: Letter with motivation for the application (max. one page) Curriculum vitae, incl. education, experience, language skills and other skills relevant for the position List of publications (mark the publications sent in for evaluation) Copies of up to 3 publications to be considered in the assessment.
