We need to recruit many new employees due to retirement among our current staff and an expansion in our research activity. We need you here. We look forward to receiving your application!

The Department of Thematic Studies was the first in Sweden to offer an academic setting for thematically organised, interdisciplinary, socially relevant research. We combine strong research with undergraduate and postgraduate programmes and courses, often in collaboration with actors outside the university. Our point of departure is a critical, reflective approach, and we seek to develop new ways of understanding established social phenomena, in order to benefit both scientific and social development.

Hereby advertises a position as

Postdoc in Technology and Social Change
formally based at Department of Thematic Studies

Technology and Social Change is a nationally and internationally leading environment for research and education in how people create and use technology, and how technological change is interwoven with cultural patterns, everyday life, politics and economy.

The project involves interviews with couples who have been offered this screening, and health care personnel, in the Netherlands.

The project is a part of the research program “A Feminist Approach to Medical Screening” financed by the Swedish Research Foundation. This program examines normative aspects of medical screening with a focus on what screening programs mean for the screened subjects. It cross-pollinates feminist phenomenology/phenomenology of medicine and feminist science studies/STS, combining the analysis of lived bodily experiences, normality and risk (the contribution from within feminist phenomenology and phenomenology of medicine) with a norm critical take on the co-construction of technological, socio-political, economic and ethical dimensions when screening technology is developed and used (the contribution from within feminist science studies and STS). The selected candidate will be expected to work independently as well as together with other researchers in the research team.

The applicant shall have documented skills in the subject of philosophy. Documented skills in empirical philosophy, i.e. combinations of empirical and philosophical work, is also required.

The positions are vacant from 1st February 2019 or soon after. The positions are located in Odense, but teaching may be required at the campus in Slagelse.

Job description

The Centre for Integrative Innovation Management is a cross-disciplinary research group focusing on meeting the societal demands for strengthening the innovative capabilities and processes of Danish industry. We adopt a cross-disciplinary approach because understanding and promotion of innovation from the initial idea to the fully commercialized or implemented innovation requires the combination of engineering, management and marketing. For more information on the Centre please visit the Centre website.

In particular, we invite project proposals within one of the following key research programs in the Centre:

1. Management of innovation – this program focuses on the internal drivers and barriers to successful innovation. Particularly, in this program we have an interest in project proposals bringing innovation management and project management together in a joint project.
2. From new technologies to business models and innovation-based ecosystems – this program focuses on emerging technologies and their path to commercialisation.
3. The role of digitisation in innovation – the focus here is on identifying the effects of digitisation and data on innovation. We are including how digitisation influences the existing business models.

The research strategy of the group further emphasizes the following subjects for the coming years: analysis and application of big data for innovation, commercialization of specific technologies like e.g. drones or 3D printing, project management for innovation performance, and sustainability and innovation. We are particularly welcoming project proposals within these themes.

As part of the PhD programme, an individual education programme within the field of marketing and management has to be completed. The successful candidates will be expected to complete a six-month stay at a research institution abroad and, over the period of the programme, to acquire experience of teaching or other types of presentation. They will also be expected to participate in the various activities within the centre and – apart from the stay abroad – to be present at the unit on a daily basis.

Research within the Department is anchored in an understanding of the cooperation between markets, organizations and individuals. It encompasses a variety of areas from evolutionary models of organization to new exotic forms of consumption. It is the ambition of the Department to be in the international frontline in these areas and to seek synergy between research, teaching and knowledge dissemination. Research at the Department is organized in five research units. See the Department website www.sdu.dk/imm for more details.

At the Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Political Science, a Ph.D. position in political theory is open for appointment from 15 September 2018 or as soon as possible after that date.

Job description

The candidate will work with Associate Professor Simon Laumann Jørgensen on the project Borders of Democracy supported by The Danish Council for Independent Research. The project asks how democracies might defend the exclusion of groups such as children, future citizens, and immigrants that are affected by democratic policies but excluded from democratic procedures; and how democracies might defend norms and policies that undermine the preconditions for popular sovereignty of others such as future citizens and peoples in other countries.

The Ph.D. project discusses the legitimacy of all four different borders of inclusion and exclusion of democratic interests. Is it legitimate that one should not have the right to vote before turning 18, or because one does not live up to specific requirements that those born in a country are not met with? Or that democracies pass on serious (environmental) burdens to coming generations that have no democratic voice; or that democracies often show very little concern about whether their trade policies undermine democracy elsewhere? 

We are looking for a candidate with strong analytical skills, who is trained in political theory/philosophy and is interested in questions of democratic legitimacy and power. Knowledge of critical theory in the tradition of Jürgen Habermas will be an advantage. Aalborg University is becoming a vibrant place for political theory/philosophy specifically in relation to the normative foundations of democracy.

The application schould entail a project-description of up to four pages containing initial thoughts on how to approach the four border problems.

The Faculties of Humanities, Law and Social Science constitute the Human Science Academic Area.

Project description
This call is part of Stockholm University’s strategic inter-disciplinary initiative in environmental research in human science, which comprises environmental humanities, law and social science. In a broad sense, this research aims to understand and explain the relationship between human beings, society, environment and nature from a range of theoretical, empirical and methodological traditions and perspectives. Environmental research in human science is an evolving inter-disciplinary field that examines what governs humans’ perceptions, values and behavior and ways of collective organization in relationship to the environment, nature, natural resources and sustainable development. The overarching aim of the strategic initiative is to deepen our understanding of the challenges and possibilities of global environmental change found across different scholarly fields and disciplines in humanities, social science and law. The University’s efforts to strengthen environmental research in human science are defined by trans-disciplinary exchanges of knowledge between different academic disciplines. The idea is that the postdoctoral fellows should collaborate across departments and faculties and also with societal actors. In this way the call can contribute by establishing new internal and external networks and platforms for environment and sustainability. The research issues in this call are not only related to local and national environmental issues but also international and global challenges. More information about the initiative can be found on the website:https://www.su.se/hvmf/

Main responsibilities
The main responsibilities for the postdoctoral fellows is to conduct research within their areas of specialization and collaborate with researchers across faculties. The initiative aims at strengthening the multi-disciplinary research environment at Stockholm University.

The initiative is led by the Steering Board for Environmental Research in Human Science, which consists of researchers from the faculties of humanities, social science and law. The postdoctoral fellows will, depending on disciplinary belonging, be employed and hosted by the different department at these faculties.

The research should be related to environment and sustainability issues within humanities, law, social science or corresponding areas. For instance, it can revolve around the interrelated research fields below:

Environmental humanities
Environmental politics
Environmental law
Environmental economics
Environmental sociology
Environmental philosophy
Environmental history

PhD scholarship in Sociology (1857)

At the Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Sociology and Social Work, a PhD scholarship in Sociology is open for appointment on 1 October 2018 or as soon as possible.

Job description

The scholarship is part of the comparative, qualitative research project ‘Just Worlds’, comparing cultural notions of social justice and entitlement between China, US and Scandinavia. The fellowship is part of the Chinese sub-study. The project is funded by the Sino-Danish Center and Aalborg University Talent Management Program and is led by Associate Professor Morten Frederiksen.

Comparative welfare state research consistently find that public attitudes to welfare and redistribution are very different between countries. Surprisingly, we know little of the normative principles behind people’s attitudes and how these principles differ between countries. Current research links social justice attitudes to country specific historical trajectory and institutional structure. However, this research does not account for the cultural foundations of different social justice attitudes: the shared normative standards people use to justify their attitudes. These principles remain unexplored. In this project we will conduct an interview study within an explorative, mixed methods design comparing cultural notions of social justice between three cases: the Confucian welfare state (China (PRC)), the liberal welfare state (USA), and the universal welfare state (SE/DK). The question driving the project is whether the huge differences between the three cases in terms of welfare institutions are accompanied by similar differences in prevailing, cultural notions of social justice. The project approaches this question from the perspective of the sociology of valuation and evaluation, exploring cultural notions of fairness and entitlement in the context of social rights.

A general project outline is available and can be requested from Associate Professor Morten Frederiksen, mfr@socsci.aau.dk.

While the study design and methodology is fixed within a larger comparative study, there is room for the PhD fellow to define part of the interview guide and analytical strategies for the Chinese data. Applicants are required to submit a short project proposal outlining both their particular approach to the project and how this contribute to the research general project. The project proposal should also include a preliminary plan for the 3-year fellowship.

The PhD.-fellow will be responsible for the Chinese part of the project, carrying out data collection in collaboration with local research assistants and the Chine partner Beijing Normal University. The PhD.-Fellow will be required to spend at total of 1 year in Beijing during the fellowship, which can be divided into several shorter stays. Stays can both take place at Beijing Normal University, Sino-Danish Center or at other relevant institutions.

Applicants with a degree in sociology, anthropology, political science or similar degrees and experience conducting qualitative research will be preferred. Good English language skills are a requirement. Chinese language skills are an advantage, but in no way a requirement.


Qualification requirements

The PhD scholarship has a duration of three years. Applicants to the PhD scholarship must hold a degree equivalent to a Danish Master’s degree. Applicants enrolled at a Danish Master programme who expect to graduate before the date of appointment must forward statement from thesis supervisor, verified transcripts, a copy of thesis contract and documentation for the date of their final exam.

Please find information on admission requirements for PhD positions on the website of the Doctoral School.

The completion of the scholarship will be in accordance with the Ministerial Order on the PhD Programme at the Universities No 1039 of 27 August 2013 (the PhD Order), and it is a prerequisite for allocation of a scholarship that enrolment as a PhD student at the Doctoral School of Social Sciences takes place.

Postdoctoral position in Innovation and R&D Management

The Department of Technology Management and Economics conducts research within areas such as logistics, innovation, entrepreneurship, industrial marketing, quality sciences and environmental systems analysis. The department consists of six research divisions, operations support and three research centres. Our research is linked to several of Chalmers Areas of Advance.


Information about the division and the research
The research team at the division of Innovation and R&D Management (IRDM) engages in research of the interplay between science, engineering, innovation and entrepreneurship through studies of innovation and entrepreneurial challenges. In particular, we study prerequisites for Innovation and R&D Management, as well as for the large-scale diffusion of innovations and technologies in society.

The research is undertaken both at the level of individuals and organizations (established as well as newly created companies and various forms of intermediary organizations) and at the level of technology fields and industries.

By using both a management and a policy perspective to address questions of strategic significance, the division aims to develop knowledge of relevance for the management of organizations and for different types of decision-makers.

The position is intended to strengthen the division’s research, with specific focus on one of the following research areas. Candidates are required to clearly indicate the research area of interest in their application (particularly in the research proposal).

– Area 1: Large-scale diffusion of innovation
The research area aims at understanding processes of socio-technological transition and the dynamics taking place in society as well as among organizations and individuals when a new technology (e.g. electric passenger cars, renewable electricity technology) diffuses on a large scale. We welcome candidates with very good theoretical and empirical understanding of socio-technological transition processes and with knowledge and experience of qualitative research. It is a plus if candidates have experience of mixed methods and/or relevant work experience outside academia.

– Area 2: The development of new innovation value offerings in established organizations
The research area deals with how large established organizations organizations respond to transforming trends in society such as digitalization (more specifically, data driven businesses, connectivity), sustainability (e.g. circular economy), the service economy, trends that all open up for new actors and new value offerings. The focus is on how incumbent organizations act to respond to such challenges.

Within this area, experience and knowledge of industry collaboration and of qualitative methods are required.

– Area 3: Entrepreneurship, new firms development and business models
The research area aims at understanding the successes and failures of new technology-based start-up firms and to contribute to the improvement of practices in getting new start-up firms up and running, and achieving sustainable business performance. The focus of the research is on investigating the relationship between initial business models and business performance in new technology-based firms, i.e. how and to what extent the initial business configuration of a start-up firm impacts its capacity to seek and realize business growth at later phases of firm development. The analytic strategies include mainly quantitative techniques, but also case studies.

Major responsibilities
The primary duty as a postdoc is to perform research, independently and as a member of a research group, to participate in ongoing and future projects at the division, and to publish the results in highly-ranked academic journals.

The candidate is expected to work and interact as a full member of the division. This means that we expect her/him to be committed to and to initiate activities taking place at the division and at the department.

The research requires the applicant to interact with industry and the academic community, to be able to plan and organize the work, and to communicate the scientific results to the public, the industry and policy-makers, mainly through scientific publications and conferences or seminars.

The position includes 80% research and 20% teaching (including e.g. participation in courses at the bachelor and master levels, thesis supervision or course administration).

Position summary
Full-time temporary employment. The position is limited to a maximum of two years (1+1). The candidate is expected to live in the Gothenburg area during the post doc period.

Qualifications
To qualify for the postdoc position, the applicant must have a doctoral degree in a relevant field of the particular position and its division. The degree should generally not be older than three years.

The candidate is required to fulfill relevant method requirements and to have experience from presenting research at highly recognized international conferences of relevance for the research area of interest (see above).

We look for candidates who can contribute to existing research focus as well as stimulate new research pathways related to Innovation and R&D Management.

Candidates are required to show the ability of disseminating research results through interactions with professionals as well as publications in highly-ranked journals within the research area of interest.

Other meritorious experiences and skills are:
– Access to a well-developed research network as well as a professional network.
– Experiences of collaborations with partners outside academia.
– Great value is placed on the ability to collaborate, having social skills and the ability to create a stimulating work environment.
– Ability to publish results from research in highly-ranked academic journals.
– Presentation skills (oral and written)
– Experience in teaching, course development and other education related assignments.
– Experience of writing grant applications.

Our main selection criteria will be research potential and strategic fit for the research area of interest as well as for the division. Second, we will give priority to candidates with doctoral degrees or postdoc experience from international settings or from other Swedish universities. Candidates with a PhD degree from Chalmers are expected to have at least one full year experience from an international setting, or another university in Sweden.

Chalmers continuously strives to be an attractive employer. Equality and diversity are substantial foundations in all activities at Chalmers.

Postdoctoral fellows (3-5) with orientation toward environmental research in human science (humanities, law, social science)

Ref. No. SU FV-2039-18

The Faculties of Humanities, Law and Social Science constitute the Human Science Academic Area.

Project description
This call is part of Stockholm University’s strategic inter-disciplinary initiative in environmental research in human science, which comprises environmental humanities, law and social science. In a broad sense, this research aims to understand and explain the relationship between human beings, society, environment and nature from a range of theoretical, empirical and methodological traditions and perspectives. Environmental research in human science is an evolving inter-disciplinary field that examines what governs humans’ perceptions, values and behavior and ways of collective organization in relationship to the environment, nature, natural resources and sustainable development. The overarching aim of the strategic initiative is to deepen our understanding of the challenges and possibilities of global environmental change found across different scholarly fields and disciplines in humanities, social science and law. The University’s efforts to strengthen environmental research in human science are defined by trans-disciplinary exchanges of knowledge between different academic disciplines. The idea is that the postdoctoral fellows should collaborate across departments and faculties and also with societal actors. In this way the call can contribute by establishing new internal and external networks and platforms for environment and sustainability. The research issues in this call are not only related to local and national environmental issues but also international and global challenges. More information about the initiative can be found on the website:https://www.su.se/hvmf/

Main responsibilities
The main responsibilities for the postdoctoral fellows is to conduct research within their areas of specialization and collaborate with researchers across faculties. The initiative aims at strengthening the multi-disciplinary research environment at Stockholm University. Hence, researchers with different theoretical, empirical and methodological perspectives will be given opportunities to focus on their own specific research area and are expected to contribute to strengthen the cross-faculty research environment. The initiative is led by the Steering Board for Environmental Research in Human Science, which consists of researchers from the faculties of humanities, social science and law. The postdoctoral fellows will, depending on disciplinary belonging, be employed and hosted by the different department at these faculties.

The research should be related to environment and sustainability issues within humanities, law, social science or corresponding areas. For instance, it can revolve around the interrelated research fields below:

Environmental humanities
Environmental politics
Environmental law
Environmental economics
Environmental sociology
Environmental philosophy
Environmental history

Qualification requirements
Postdoctoral fellows are appointed primarily for purposes of research. Applicants are expected to hold a doctoral degree or an equivalent degree from another country in a field of study in humanities, law or social science or similar. The PhD degree should have been completed no more than three years before the deadline for the application. An older degree may be acceptable under special circumstances (such as sick leave, parental leave, clinical attachment, elected positions in trade unions, or similar).

Assessment criteria
The assessment is based on the applicants’ research merits as well as a research plan for the research ideas for environmental research in human science. In the plan, the researcher should demonstrate an ability for scientific excellence and address research problems, theories and methods of relevance for the environmental research in human science. The research plan should be independent and contain overarching theoretical questions, methodological approaches and possible empirical focus.

A central element in the initiative and the call is to establish a leading research environment and network for university-wide, cross-faculty research in human science. Therefore, it is important that the applicants have a capacity to collaborate. Additional merits include capacity to work in a cross-disciplinary team of researchers and to communicate research findings to wider audiences beyond academia. The candidates should demonstrate excellent skills in academic English in writing.

Terms of employment
The positions involve full-time employment for a period of 12-24 months, with the possibility of extension under special circumstances. The positions are for 100% with possibility for teaching or other departmental duties according to agreement with relevant department. Start date is a soon as possible during the fall of 2018.

Stockholm University strives to be a workplace free from discrimination and with equal opportunities for all.

The School is one of about 80 universities in the world with a Triple Crown accreditation. This includes EQUIS, AACSB and AMBA accreditation association, which ascertain an international recognition of high quality management education. The Department of Business Administration, with around 150 employees and 50 doctoral students is the largest department in the School. We are one of the leading research departments in the Nordic countries and our research has a strong tradition in research aiming for publication in well-recognized scientific journals http://fek.handels.gu.se.

Gothenburg Research Institute (GRI) is an interdisciplinary research institute at the School of Business, Economics and Law, University of Gothenburg. Here researchers work in programme format on projects that are highly relevant to current business developments and contemporary society. We conduct research in subjects like business administration, ethnology, sociology, law, psychology, education, Swedish language, technology, and environmental science. GRI stands for collaboration and foresight http://gri.gu.se.

Job assignments

Individuals with interdisciplinary expert competence who can offer holistic perspectives on global energy and climate challenges are needed to create more sustainable energy systems. The doctoral student will carry out research on how Swedish and international shipping companies organise their work with energy efficiency. Empirical material will be collected foremost on the field, so a certain amount of travel will be necessary. This doctoral studentship leads to a PhD degree in Business Administration (240 credits) at the Department of Business Administration. The doctoral student will be part of the Swedish Energy Agency’s interdisciplinary post graduate school in Energy Systems, and you will be placed at Gothenburg Research Institute.

General information about doctoral studies at the Department of Business Administration

The purpose of the doctoral programme in Business Administration is to provide the doctoral student with in-depth knowledge in the field of Business Administration, fundamental knowledge of different research methods based on a strong theoretical foundation and good insights into problems encountered in the research work and practical applications. For more information, please see the general syllabus available at https://fek.handels.gu.se/english/postgraduate-studies/application-and-admission/

 

Project description

In April this year, countries decided in the International Maritime Organisation (IMO), a UN specialized agency, that the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of the international shipping industry should be reduced by 50% by 2050. To be able to keep supplying the world economy with reliable and cost-efficient means of sea transport, shipping companies around the world are facing a great challenge in terms of changing how they work in practice with issues such as energy efficiency and fuel choices.

The aim of this project is to understand how forward-thinking shipping companies work with energy efficiency today, and how this work can be further developed to support a transition towards a sustainable energy system and long-term sustainability from the perspective of organising. Within this aim there are great opportunities for the doctoral student to form his/her own research work. The project also includes a doctoral student at the University of Linköping who will work with the same issues in the production industry. The project is financed as a whole by the Swedish Energy Agency.

Short description of the Swedish Energy Agency’s Post Graduate School in Energy Systems

In the Post Graduate School in Energy Systems Research, 10 doctoral students with different disciplinary backgrounds are given the opportunity to work together in interdisciplinary research projects, to develop interdisciplinary expert competence. Beyond this project, three other projects on carbon dioxide-free industry, waste treatment, and materials and recycling are starting. The doctoral students depart from the holistic view that energy systems consist of people and their interplay with technology, services and other solutions as well as with politics, laws and regulation, and other institutions.
