PhD Scholarships on Sustainability and Value Chain Design

Copenhagen Business School invites applications for a number of vacant PhD scholarships related to a Manufacturing of Denmark (MADE) research and development project at the Department of Strategy and Innovation (SI). Expected starting date is mid-August 2020.

The overall topic of the PhD scholarships will be on sustainability and, in particular, on how to develop sustainable manufacturing business models and optimise value chain design for sustainability. The PhD projects will be conducted in collaboration with major Danish companies – like Coloplast, Novo Nordisk, and LEGO – that are committed to the project.

Expectedly, pilots and experiments will be conducted together with the companies.

More specifically, the PhD-projects will focus on:

o    Circular production model to enable retrieval regarding in-use component tracking and later re-use (e.g. take-back programs).
o    Optimal product architecture for sustainability and re-use
o    Optimization of the whole value chain with suppliers and customers for sustainability.  

You will be part of a strong team of MADE researchers at CBS (involving 4 faculty and 4 PhD-students) hosted by SI. The staff at this department counts approximately 90, including about 55 faculty members (professors, associate professors, tenure track assistant professors), 7 administrators, and around 30 people hired on temporary contracts as research assistants, post docs, or PhD students.

SI’s 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.

Copenhagen Business School invites applications for 2 Post Doc Positions at the Department of Strategy and Innovation. Expected starting date is 1 May 2020.

The Department of Strategy and Innovation has an emphasis on Strategy and Innovation – as indicated by the name – but there is equal emphasis on Entrepreneurship and International Business. The four areas are the pillars that the department is resting on in its teaching and research activities. The number of staff in the department is approximately 80. This includes about 45 faculty members (professors, associate professors, tenure track assistant professors), 7 administrative staff members, and 30 members of staff who are hired on temporary contracts as research assistants, post docs or PhD students.

The department’s ambition is to create an internationally leading environment for research and teaching in strategy, innovation, entrepreneurship, and international business. The theoretical foundation for research in these areas is eclectic, combining strategy and/or internationalization theory with insights from economics, sociology, psychology, and economic geography. Methodologically, the department places considerable emphasis on the solid application of empirical methods, featuring qualitative interview studies, surveys, register data, or experiments.

The teaching of the department is very diverse across programs and areas and largely falls within the four research areas of the department, i.e. strategy, innovation, entrepreneurship and international business.

The post doc positions are time-limited for 4 years and connected to the research activities of Professor Nicolai Foss. The post doc will be subject to a formal annual performance review. The post doc positions will include approximately one year of teaching activites in the context of the Department’s teaching portfolio.
