The Department of Management, Politics and Philosophy (MPP) at Copenhagen Business School (CBS) invites applications for one open PhD scholarship within the Department’s areas of research.
By open we mean a proposal for study that covers any aspect of research carried out at MPP. MPP carries out disciplinary and multi-disciplinary research in the humanities and social sciences with a focus on management, philosophy, history, law, politics, private and public sectors. It is thus positioned at the centre of CBS. It is organised into different research groups: politics; business history: management philosophy; management and entrepreneurship; and law. Faculty within these groups have research backgrounds in many areas, including: management and organization studies, sociology, philosophy, history, cultural theory, cultural history & cultural economics, law, legal theory, anthropology, theology, ethics, technology and media theory, entrepreneurship, gender and diversity studies, design and aesthetics, finance, and many others. What unites faculty is an overriding concern for the human within its multiple environments: work, nature, economy, civil, the state, and the corporation.
Further info about the department: cbs.dk/mpp. We invite applications in any area which fits the departmental profile and can be supervised within it (by two members of faculty) We invite interested candidates from different disciplinary and multidisciplinary backgrounds in the human and social sciences that would be relevant to these themes.
Copenhagen Business School has a broad commitment to the excellence, distinctiveness and relevance of its teaching and research programmes. Candidates who wish to join us should demonstrate enthusiasm for working in an organisation of this type (highlighting, for example, relevant business, educational and dissemination activities).
