Copenhagen Business School

PhD with background in Social Science to Analyze Complex Network Trajectories

Copenhagen Business School invites applications for a PhD Position with a background in Sociology or related fields at the Department of Organization. Expected starting date is January 1 2021.

The PhD position is 3 years and connected to the three-year Carlsberg Foundation research project “NetCareers – Careers through Complex Networks” led by Associate Professor Lasse Folke Henriksen. The PhD will work on modeling complex life course trajectory networks of complete population cohorts in high income countries, focusing on career mobilities and stratification outcomes. Using large scale administrative data sets from high income countries, the project models the movement of people through institutions and organizations over the life and links these networked trajectories to outcomes such as status, wages, wealth and health. The NetCareers project assembles an inter-disciplinary team of researchers from the sciences and social sciences to develop new techniques for studying complex network trajectories and their outcomes. The team is embedded at the Department of Organization at Copenhagen Business School, and the PhD student will be working in collaboration with the team.

The Department of Organization (IOA) is an international department comprising 55 faculty members covering the areas of organization studies, organization theory, public management and governance, political economy, economic sociology, and science and technology studies. Our research and teaching address organizational and managerial processes and consequences in workplaces, organizations and networks. This includes studies of private companies, public organizations, professional societies as well as NGOs. More specifically, we investigate and discuss issues such as organization of innovation, change and reform processes, work and human resources, project management, institutional dynamics, market formation, social networks and power. The department contributes to the CBS doctoral school with 35 PhD students enrolled.

The teaching responsibilities associated with the scholarship comprise undergraduate and graduate teaching and supervision.

The three-year PhD program at CBS allows you to conduct research under the supervision of CBS professors, supported by research training courses.

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.

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.
