Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Cognitive Neuroscience

The position

A position as Postdoctoral Fellow is available at the Department of Psychology with the research group of cognitive neuroscience.

This Postdoctoral position is a fixed term position of a duration of three years. Appointment to the positon of Postdoctoral Research Fellow is mainly intended to provide qualification for work in top academic positions.

It is a prerequisite that the applicant be able to carry out the project over the full course of the employment period. No person may hold more than one fixed-term position as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the same institution.

The project’s field of research

The Department of Psychology at UiT  has nearly 100 employees in total. The department is organized in ten research groups, covering all major fields of psychology. The Research Group of Cognitive Neuroscience consists of ten members (6 in permanent positions and 4 PhD candidates), and focuses on the neural mechanisms underlying cognitive functioning.

While a basic-science approach is the basis of our work, we are also interested in the translation of basic findings into clinical applications (e.g., Alzheimer’s disease, depression, ADHD). Our lab applies different neuroimaging and psychophysiological methods, among others, EEG, fMRI, tDCS, TMS, eye-movement recordings, startle-reflex and skin conductance measures.

The research group is involved in projects across a large range of topics, such as the neural basis of mind wandering, value-based decision-making, pain perception, placebo effects and fear conditioning.

Responsibilities

The post-doc will work in the project “Influencing mind-wandering/attentional control with non-invasive brain stimulation”, which has the goal to study the behavioural and neural effects of non-invasive brain stimulation protocols (repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation, rTMS, and transcranial direct current stimulation, tDCS) to reduce the frequency of mind-wandering episodes and improve cognitive performance in humans. We plan to delineate the neural characteristics of spontaneous attentional lapses, and target brain networks underlying poor executive control using our novel experimental setup in healthy individuals and adults with symptoms of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

The candidate will be required to contribute to study preparation, participant recruitment, data collection and analysis (behavioural measures from clinical/neuropsychological tests and cognitive tasks, structural and functional MRI, delivering brain stimulation with tDCS and rTMS) and preparation of manuscripts. Because the project encompasses both experimental and clinical aspects, candidates from a wide variety of different backgrounds can be relevant for the position. This includes, but is not limited to, experimental psychologists, clinical psychologists or cognitive neuroscientists.

PhD Scholarships in the Department of Strategy and Innovation

Copenhagen Business School invites applications for a number of vacant PhD scholarships (3-5) at the Department of Strategy and Innovation. Expected starting date is 1 September 2020 

The Department of Strategy and Innovation’s (SI) research is focused on strategy, innovation, entrepreneurship and international business.  The department’s ambition is to host an internationally leading environment for research and teaching within the broad area of strategy. The department’s research is generally cross-disciplinary. Faculty members have backgrounds in management, economics, sociology and economic geography. The theoretical foundation for research in these areas is eclectic, combining strategy, innovation, and/or internationalization theory with insights from economics, sociology, psychology, and economic geography. The department has 55 faculty members (professors, associate professors, tenure track assistant professors), 7 administrative staff, and 30 members of staff who are hired on temporary contracts as research assistants, post docs or PhD students.   

The department puts substantial emphasis on the solid application of scientific research method. The department has a pluralistic approach to research methods that includes, for example, formal theoretical models, quantitative empirical methods such as (lab and field) experiments, econometric applications to register data or survey data, as well as qualitative research methods. PhD project proposals should be based on coherent theoretical arguments and contain well-informed methodological considerations.  To find out more about the department please go to http://www.cbs.dk/si

SI particularly invites for PhD project applications pertaining to the following broad topics, although applications that address other topics within the research scope of the department will also be considered:

ESG and firm innovation: Meeting environmental, social, and governance (ESG) requirements has become strategically important for firms. How do firms devise innovation strategies that live up to ESG requirements, and how do they consider stakeholder concerns while leveraging stakeholder collaboration? 

Human Capital and the Future of Work: Many firms face fundamental changes, e.g. through digitalization, that constrain the strategic value of human capital acquired in the same firm or industry. New skills and experiences are required to rethink products and processes. How can firms find such human capital by hiring individuals from new organizational contexts for revealing and building human capital that is transferable to firms facing fundamental changes? This project will rely on large-scale data analyses of Danish linked employer-employee data. 

The Evolution of Organizational Networks: The analysis of organizational social networks has attracted the attention of scholars, business professionals, and policymakers. The project centers on the value of connections in a network, and causally links the strategic positioning of nodes in the social space to performance. It will investigate how such structures and positions are formed and evolve and conduct longitudinal analyses of relational (network) data with the intent to shed new light on the microfoundations of network change.

Digital Platforms and Ecosystems: How do they transform existing value chains? Digital platforms are shaking up industries by introducing innovations in market architecture – i.e., new marketplace infrastructures that offer new ways products and services are connected, accessed and consumed. This can represent new opportunities for incumbent firms in a sector, but alter significantly existing value chains and erode the value of incumbents’ assets and their sources of competitive advantage. One question in this context concerns how platform market architecture innovations affect the value of incumbents’ core and complementary assets.

The role of human capital in new forms of open and distributed innovation: New technologies – specifically rapid advances in information and communication technologies – and their extensive use, increased customer demands and shorter product life cycles have triggered new forms of creation and innovative practices. The project studies the nature and role of human capital in these new forms of open and distributed innovation, and identifies relevant characteristics and processes that can eventually be translated into innovative leadership models, human resource management practices and related educational trainings. 

How do entrepreneurs mobilize human capital resources for their ventures? Founders and startups get most of the attention in academic, public, and policy debates. However, for every founder there is often several early employees taking nearly equal risks by joining an early-stage company. Mobilizing human resources to startups is nevertheless challenging. This project focuses on particular factors that may explain how entrepreneurs mobilize personnel for their ventures and the implications of hiring strategies for new venture performance. It will rely on quantitative methods using Danish register data. 

What influences user innovators to start their own firms? The case of patient/caregiver innovators: Patient innovators are user innovators who come up with novel treatments and medical/non-medical devices to help them cope with their own disease/health-condition. Sometimes user innovators realize that their innovative solutions have a significant market potential and decide to become producers, i.e. they are “user entrepreneurs.” This study will focus on healthcare users and investigate the factors that influence the decision of patient/caregiver innovators to develop their own ventures. The project will build on data from patient-innovation.com, a repository of about 2000 medical innovations developed by patients/caregivers for their own use.

The MNC and inequality: The purpose of the project is to understand the relationship between the width and depth of different multinational corporation (MNC) activities and the prevalence of inequality in different forms (primarily in host, but also home, locations). 

Parenthood and Gender Inequality in Science: What are the effects on scientific productivity and subsequent career progression for women compared to men after they become parents? And how does the interaction between family structure, social norms and attitudes influence the effect of parenthood on scientific work? These questions will be answered using a combination of qualitative and quantitative (registry, publications, etc.) data on scientists affiliated to Danish universities. More details about this project can be found at https://www.cbs.dk/en/research/departments-and-centres/department-of-strategy-and-innovation/research/parenthood-and-inequality-in-science

Two positions as Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Science and Technology Studies

The positions

Two positions as Postdoctoral Research Fellow are available at the Department of Archaeology, History, Religious Studies and Theology at UiT – The Arctic University of Tromsø. The positions are associated with the interdisciplinary project ‘Urban Transformation in a Warming Artic: The Continued Effects of Nordic Colonialism in Urban Development and Planning’ (UrbTrans), (2020–2024), which is funded by the Tromsø Research Foundation and the Research Council Norway, and led by Principal Investigator Tone Huse.

The appointments are for a fixed term position for a period of four years.

Appointment to the position of Postdoctoral Research Fellow is mainly intended to provide qualification for work in top academic positions. It is a prerequisite that the applicant is able to carry out the project over the full course of the employment period. No person may hold more than one fixed-term position as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the same institution.

The core research group will consist of the two Postdoctoral Fellows, two PhD Fellows and the PI. In addition, the project will engage in collaborations with national and international partners, including curators and artists as well as scholars. Successful applicants will be expected to contribute towards the activities of the group, which will involve common fieldwork, co-organised seminars, and the production of an exhibition. The applicants will furthermore be expected to take responsibility for research tasks specified in the project’s work packages. Briefly, this will entail either (1) archival studies on the historical development of urban planning and development in Nuuk, linking this to political developments in the period 1950–2024, or (2) ethnographic studies of current urban development practices, focusing on new development projects and their link to Nuuk’s capital city strategy. For further information about the positions, please contact Tone Huse.

The appointed Postdoctoral Fellows must have their daily workplace at UiT – The Arctic University of Norway, Tromsø.

About UrbTrans

‘The Arctic is burning, and Greenland is melting’, the popular science magazine ScienceNews.org stated after the record-warm month of July 2019. Wildfires ravaged and attention was once again turned to the pronounced effects of climate change in the Arctic. This development is also what sets the stage for UrbTrans, a radically interdisciplinary project that will analyse how the citizens and authorities of Greenland’s capital city, Nuuk, respond to the challenges and opportunities of a warming Arctic. UrbTrans will further work to expand the temporal scope of Arctic studies, towards understanding not only the dramatic shifts of the present, but also how Nuuk’s colonial past is activated in and affects ongoing transformation processes. This will entail close engagement with questions regarding the character and continued effects of Nordic colonialism, as well as innovative methodological work to span the traditional divides of the humanities and the social sciences.

UrbTrans builds on Science and technology Studies (STS), but will also be in close conversation with a diverse set of research fields and disciplines, ranging from Arctic-, postcolonial-, and indigenous studies, to architecture, geography and history. The project will further combine the methods of archival studies, document analysis and ethnography, thus engaging simultaneously with studies of the past of the present. The Postdoctoral Fellows will be expected engage collaboratively in research activities that span these methods, but also to independently carry out research that relies mainly on either archival studies or ethnography.

Contact

For further information about the positions, please contact Researcher Tone Huse, e-mail: tone.huse@tik.uio.no, telephone: +47 47 33 60 65 or John McNicol, e-mail john.mcnicol@uit.no, telephone: +47 77 64 43 61.

PhD-student at The Faculty of Theology, University of Copenhagen in cooperation with The Danish National Museum (3 years)

Research area
The Danish National Museum wishes in collaboration with the Faculty of Theology at University of Copenhagen to examine how visual art and decoration has developed within the Danish Lutheran Church, ‘den danske folkekirke’, from the beginning of the twentieth century and up until today, where large sums are spend on ambitions decorations of the church interior.

Traditionally art and furnishings have supported the sermons preached from the pulpit and the ceremonies, but during the 1900’s a growing wish for a more contemporary furnishing and decoration of the church and its liturgy has become apparent.

Today contemporary art often aims at the activation of the whole of the church interior; from the explicit and literal to the subtle and abstract. The common ground is a tension between the new art, the historical architectural setting and the traditional iconography. In the middle of this encounter we find both the churchgoer as an individual and the congregation as a whole.

The project is to uncover the relations and hierarchies between church art, space and the personal spiritual and pastoral life of the ‘den danske folkekirke’. The project is to be rooted in the disciplines of art history and church history and anchored in a large source material found from throughout Denmark.

The project is funded through Ny Carlsbergfondet.

Qualifications
Applicants must have an MA-degree within the fields of Art History, Theology or the equivalent. Research languages are Danish and English. Specialist knowledge of visual art, aesthetics and theology is important. Central is readiness to engage in interdisciplinary collaboration and work towards an integrated methodology for interdisciplinary studies in art and theology.

Job Description
The PhD-student will participate in meetings, teaching and scholarly workshops at both the Faculty and the Museum and be required to contribute to joint publications and publish research in international peer-reviewed journals where appropriate.

The PhD-students will be employed and enrolled at:

  • Faculty of Theology, University of Copenhagen

Institutions

The Faculty of Theology, University of Copenhagen.
The Faculty is non-confessional and dates from 1479. Its research covers Biblical Studies, Church History and Systematic Theology as well as Quranic Studies and African Studies. The Faculty is home to a number of high-profile international interdisciplinary research projects. The Department of Church History has a strong and vivid tradition for research in Luther and Lutheran theology and in Christianity and the arts.

The Danish National Museum. The museum has a long tradition to research into church art and church architecture and employs a large number of specialists within this field, not in the least the corpus publication Danmarks Kirker, published since 1933. The museum also houses archival materials concerning church art and architecture reaching as far back as the seventeenth century.

Terms of employment
The successful PhD candidates will be offered a full-time PhD position for a period of three years. The candidates will be employed and paid in accordance with the agreement between the Ministry of Finance and the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations (AC).

Application procedure
Applications must be submitted via the electronic application system. Click on the link provided below to be taken to the online application form.

The application can be in Danish or English and should include the following enclosures:

  • a motivation letter (1 page)
  • CV
  • a copy of BA and MA-degree certificates and transcripts of records
  • a list of publications
  • a research proposal which develops the project idea (max 3 pages in all)
  • a short abstract of your MA-thesis or equivalent
  • one sample of writing (an article or a chapter from your MA- thesis)
  • name, e-mail address, telephone numbers and postal address of two academic referees

We advise you to have the documents ready before you begin your online application.

Application Deadline and Start
must be submitted electronically no later than 1 May 2020. Applications received after the closing date will not be considered.

The ideal starting date would be September 1, 2020, but this is negotiable.

Recruitment process
After the application deadline the authorized recruitment manager select applicants for assessment on the advice of the Appointment Committee. This selection is based on the applicants’ educational qualifications, the quality of the submitted research proposal as well as other relevant qualifications. All applicants are immediately notified whether their application has been accepted for assessment.

The applications accepted for assessment will be assessed by an interdisciplinary committee, comprising expertise in the relevant fields of Theology (espec. Church History) and Art History. Selected applicants will be notified of the composition of the assessment committee. When the committee has completed its assessment, each applicant has the opportunity to comment on the assessment. A number of qualified candidates will be selected for a job interview. We aim to interview candidates in June 2020.
