Postdoc in the area of Enterprise Foundations

Copenhagen Business School invites applications for a vacant Postdoc position in the area of Enterprise Foundations

Enterprise foundations are foundations that own companies. Other widely used terms are industrial foundations or corporate foundations. Typically, the foundations are charitable, but they also play an important role as business owners. The structure is common in Northern Europe, particularly in Denmark, and poses special challenges and opportunities for corporate governance. For example, enterprise foundations often aim to be responsible long-term owners, but may be constrained by limited access to external finance. Enterprise foundations are seen as role models for purposeful companies. Previous research in the area is summarized in the homepage of the center’s research project on enterprise foundations (www.tifp.dk).

Copenhagen Business School would like to appoint a suitably qualified person to a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Enterprise Foundations. 

This position is designed for an individual with strong research potential at an early stage of an academic career.

Degree or equivalent and be proficient in quantitative empirical research.

The post is available for a fixed term of two years from 1 December 2020 at the Centre for Corporate Governance (CCG).

CCG is hosted by the Department of Accounting (ACC) at Copenhagen Business School.

The post doc will work with the research group in enterprise foundations and long-term ownership with access to its unique datasets.

It is the ambition of the Department to be in the international frontline in these research areas; to publish research results in leading international journals; to have an excellent research environment; to seek synergy between research and teaching, and to have a strong partnership with the business community.

Examples of research areas that the post doc. assignment might cover:

  • Value creation and corporate responsibility in foundation-owned companies
  • Long-term ownership by enterprise foundations
  • Board structures and CEO turnover ion foundation-owned companies
  • Managerial incentives in foundation-owned companies

Most of these issues are of general concern to businesses around the world, but they play a special role in enterprise foundations and foundation-owned companies.

The research in Enterprise Foundation is supported by CBS and 10 Danish Enterprise Foundations including the Novo Nordisk Foundation. In accordance with CBS research policy, the researcher is guaranteed freedom of research within the research area in question.

The Postdoc is a non-tenured position for a 2 year period with research obligation.

CBS LAW invites applications for a PhD position in climate law and economics

Copenhagen Business School, CBS LAW invites applications for a PhD position in climate law and economics. 

Core research areas at CBS LAW:

  • Business Law from a societal and commercial perspective
  • Business law and economics; law & management/entrepreneurship

It is the ambition of the Department to provide high quality legal research relevant for the Danish society and business community. CBS LAW has a strong profile in business law, EU law, law & economics and law & management

Teaching responsibilities of the Department comprise undergraduate and graduate teaching in the programs which are in our primary focus (cand.merc.(jur) and cand.merc.(aud)).

The PhD project covers research in: 

Climate law & economics

  • Legally binding reduction targets, emission budgets,
  • Review systems and independent institutions to support decision making

The understanding of the impacts of climate change and the modes for countering it and dealing with it are among the most relevant challenges for Copenhagen Business School as a key provider of understanding of how businesses, the public sector and the society interact in the 21st century.

Climate law deals with regional and global issues such as legally binding reduction targets, emission budgets, review systems and independent institutions to support decision making. As such, it is a discipline providing knowledge both of climate legislation, the policymaking process, the institutions in charge of the enforcement and oversight as well as the impact on businesses and the society. A number of issues, including market creation, implementation of international commitments, property rights in carbon and emissions, energy, transport, etc. have direct relevance for Danish society and Danish businesses.

The knowledge of economic side of the problem is necessary both because efficiency is a key parameter in moving resources to their highest valued use and because economic actors respond to incentives. Market-based policy instruments and economic theory that informs climate laws play a key role in creating climate regulation but require the knowledge of economics.

CBS LAW is internationally recognised for the excellence in law scholarship and for an interdisciplinary, proactive and dynamic research perspective within law in Northern Europe. CBS LAW concentrates on providing unique research relevant for the Danish business community, public sector, and society in general and engages in research firmly grounded in business and societal problems. Our perspective is both Nordic, EU and global and is based not only on traditional law disciplines but also on a unique interface between law, management, entrepreneurship, economics and policymaking.
