PhD scholarship with a focus on the future of business and management education in the context of digital transformation of education

Copenhagen Business School invites applications for a vacant PhD scholarship within the field of the future of universities in the context of digital transformation of education.    

The successful applicant will be part of the project Research in Blended Learning (RiBL), which will run until the end of 2022. The aim of the project is the construction of new knowledge about the future of technology-supported teaching and learning in Higher Education and its consequences and prospects for student learning in the context of business and management studies. Besides being part of RiBL, the applicant will be affiliated with the Department of Management, Politics and Philosophy.   

The PhD scholarship will focus on the exploration of the transformational impact of digital technologies on teaching and learning in business and management education. In recent years, we have witnessed how the introduction of digital technologies are changing the mode of teaching and learning in higher education. Classrooms are flipped, which means that knowledge transmission including lecturing is increasingly provided online. This transformation frees up time in the classroom for dialogue and interactive learning, thereby potentially facilitating active student engagement and interaction. While several studies have looked at technology-enhanced learning, less focus has been put on how the possibilities brought about by digitalization transforms the face-to-face teaching and learning situation.   
The topic for this PhD is how pedagogy and learning philosophy can inform learning in the digital context, and how digital technologies can help to create a more relation-based and interactive learning environment in business and management learning. Applicants are moreover expected to focus on exploring the future development and understanding of teaching and learning that the digital transformation of education capacitates as well as how the future of education will change the university as institution.    

Research topics   
Relevant research topics that may be pursued include: 

  • How can digital transformation of education in business and management prepare students (skills, competences, mindsets) to become part of the future digital workforce of the 21st century? 
  • What will be the focus of the learning process in the future and what changes to the role of the teacher will this imply? 
  • How can new digital technologies facilitate and constrain learning in business and management education? 
  • What will be the role, business model, and value proposition of business and management education in a digital society in which there is free access to knowledge? 
  • How can business and management education better integrate formal, non-formal, and informal learning modes in the digital age? 
  • How can business and management education change its role as a gatekeeper of knowledge to facilitator of learning? 
  • How can we rethink the link between business and management education and industry in the digital age (lifelong learning)? 
  • How can business and management education support the integration of non-human capabilities (learning algorithms, AI, big data analytics) with human capabilities (judgment, prediction, decision-making)?

Post doc on Firms in the Informal Economy with a Special Focus on Sub-Saharan Africa

The Department of Strategy and Innovation (SI) invites applications for a vacant position as post doc. The position is a full-time position for 2 years starting September 2019 or by mutual agreement. The post doc is part of the research project “The firm in the informal economy” funded by the Carlsberg Foundation and headed by Associate Professor Marcus M. Larsen.     

SI employs an international group of 45 full-time faculty members, as well as part-time faculty, post docs, and PhD students. The core research and teaching area of the Department is strategy, innovation, entrepreneurship and international business. SI’s stated aim is to continue to be among the leading departments in strategy and innovation in Europe.   

The aim of this specific project is to explore the drivers and consequences of how firms in a variety of informal economy contexts structure their organizations. As has been a cornerstone in organizational theory for decades, firms must structure their organizations in ways that match the external environment to operate effectively. However, the nature of the informal economy firms may prevent them from effectively realizing the potential of their organizations. For example, the absence of formal contracts to coordinate firm and human resources calls into question the role and effectiveness of non-contractual coordination mechanisms, such as trust, reciprocity, common grounds, and social networks. Moreover, as many firms in the informal economy have no other option than to operate informally due to the costs and difficulties of registration and taxes it is uncertain how they systematize and effectively exploit different coordination mechanisms.    The post doc will join a group of researchers working in the field of organizational theory with a special focus on unregistered firms in Sub-Saharan Africa. The specific tasks of the post doc are:   

  • work together with members of the research group on one or more sub-projects; 
  • conduct literature search and develop an analytical framework; 
  • contribute with primary data selection (both qualitative and quantitative); 
  • carry out econometric analyses based on the gathered data; 
  • contribute towards achieving the overall project objectives regarding publication and dissemination of the project results. 

Candidates should hold, or be close to completing, a PhD from an accredited institution. They should have a strong research record (or potential) in the area of organizational theory and/or development studies, and first-rate skills in empirical collection and analysis.   

Application must include:  

  1. A letter of motivation  
  2. Full CV 
  3. Copies of diplomas  
  4. Documentation of relevant, significant, original research at an international level, including publications in the field’s internationally recognized journals and citations in the Social Science Citation Index and/or Google Scholar  
  5. A complete, numbered list of publications (indicating titles, co-authors, page numbers and year) with an * marking of the academic productions to be considered during the review. A maximum of 10 publications for review are allowed. Applicants are requested to prioritize their publications in relation to the field of this job advertisement  
  6. Copies of the publications marked with an *. Only publications written in English (or another specified principal language, according to research tradition) or one of the Scandinavian languages will be taken into consideration).  

Application   
Application must be sent via the electronic recruitment system, using the link below.     

After the application deadline a committee will make a shortlist of the best qualified applicants. The shortlisted applicants will be assessed by the Assessment Committee. All applicants will be notified of their status in the recruitment process shortly after the application deadline. The applicants selected for assessment will be notified about the composition of the Assessment Committee, and later in the process they will receive the result of their assessment.   Copenhagen Business School must receive all application material, including all appendices (see items above), by the application deadline.     Appointment and salary will be in accordance with the Ministry of Finance’s agreement with the Central Academic Organizations.      To find out more about working and living in Denmark, please go to http://www.cbs.dk/en/about-cbs/jobs-cbs.

PhD Scholarship on the Firm in the Informal Economy

The societal presence and impact of the informal economy are inescapable. Around the world and especially in areas of widespread poverty, unregistered and unregulated organizational entities operate in the part of the economy that either fails to adhere to the established institutional rules or are denied their protection. Reports from the International Labor Organization find that 48% of the labor force works in the informal economy in North Africa, 72% in Sub-Saharan Africa, 51% in Latin America, and 65% in Asia. Studies from the International Monetary Fund find that the informal economy account for 10-20% of the GDP in developed countries and as much as 60% in developing countries.     The aim of this PhD scholarship is to explore the drivers and consequences of how firms in a variety of informal economy contexts structure their organizations. As has been a cornerstone in organizational theory for decades, firms must structure their organizations in ways that match the external environment to operate effectively. However, the nature of the informal economy firms may prevent them from effectively realizing the potential of their organizations. For example, the absence of formal contracts to coordinate firm and human resources calls into question the role and effectiveness of non-contractual coordination mechanisms, such as trust, reciprocity, common grounds, and social networks. Moreover, as many firms in the informal economy have no other option than to operate informally due to the costs and difficulties of registration and taxes it is uncertain how they systematize and effectively exploit different coordination mechanisms.    

This PhD candidate will be expected to collect rich qualitative and quantitative data and develop rigorous theory to understand how firms in the informal economy structure their organizations. Geographically, this project will focus on industry clusters in Sub-Saharan Africa where the share of the informal economy is higher than in any other region in the world. The ideal candidate therefore has an educational background in the area of organizational theory and/or development studies and possess strong skills in both quantitative and qualitative methods.   

General information 

This PhD candidate will be affiliated with the Department of Strategy and Innovation (SI) and be part of the research project “The firm in the informal economy” funded by the Carlsberg Foundation and headed by Associate Professor Marcus M. Larsen.     

SI employs an international group of 45 full-time faculty members, as well as part-time faculty, postdocs, and PhD students. The core research and teaching area of the Department is strategy, innovation, entrepreneurship and international business. SI’s stated aim is to continue to be among the leading departments in strategy and innovation in Europe.   

A PhD scholarship runs for a period of 3 years starting September 1, 2019, or by mutual agreement. The scholarship includes a fully salaried position, according to the national Danish collective agreement. The scholarship includes the tuition fees, office space, travel grants plus a salary, currently starting with per month app. DKK 23.770 (app. 3,160 euro) up to DKK 28.964 (app. 3,860 euro) depending on seniority, plus a pension contribution totaling 17,1 % of the base salary. The salary level and appointment is determined by the Ministry of Finance’s collective agreement with the Central Academic Organization.   

The PhD program is highly international and you are expected to participate in international research conferences. See the CBS homepage for more information about the PhD program, https://www.cbs.dk/en/research/phd-programmes.
