PhD scholarships in Circular Economy (European Horizon 2020 Project “REFLOW”) at the Department of Operations Management

The Department of Operations Management at Copenhagen Business School (CBS) invites applications for two vacant PhD scholarships linked to the large European Horizon 2020 project REFLOW (constRuctive mEtabolic processes For material flOWs in urban and peri-urban environments across Europe). REFLOW has 28 European partners and is led by CBS (EC signature expected May 2019). Starting dates are expected to be in the autumn 2019.       

The REFLOW project mission is to support the development of cities that are regenerative and adopt circular economy (CE) practices, through the delocalisation of production and the reconfiguration of material flows. REFLOW explores CE innovation using a digital and physical network of makerspaces and other grass-root organisations in six pilot cities: Amsterdam, Berlin, Cluj-Napoca, Milan, Paris, and Vejle. The project will provide guidance for public and private sector organisations on how to create favourable conditions for the adoption of CE practices.    

REFLOW will create new CE business models within the six pilot cities in order to provide examples of ways in which cities can adopt CE practices and reach the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The project makes use of blockchain technology in order to incentivise CE practices in local ecosystems. Moreover, it will define social and environmental measurements to enable the continuous monitoring of CE practices and the assessment of their impact.  

We encourage applications investigating CE practices in the field of management accounting, also combined with the operations management and innovation management fields. The REFLOW project leader and the research team, based at the Department of Operations Management, will provide a robust research community with regular meetings and an active mentorship. Successful applicants are also expected to be involved in the project work at European level in collaboration with the REFLOW team.     Research themes could include, but are not limited to:  

  • Measuring the social and environmental impact of CE practices 
  • Understanding process and implications of developing the CE practices in public and private sector organisations 
  • Exploring valuation practices to assess the value(s) of CE   
  • Investigating the changes in organisational management practices that are induced by the advent of CE and (blockchain) technology, and their ramifications for organisations and society as a whole.  

  We ask those interested in these positions to contact the project leader and overall coordinator Associate Professor Cristiana Parisi, e-mail: cp.om@cbs.dk, tel. (+45) 3815 3505 before applying.     Copenhagen Business School (CBS) has over 22,000 students and more than 600 full-time professors on all levels.

PhD in Sustainable Finance in Central Banking

The Department of Organization at Copenhagen Business School invites applications for a vacant PhD scholarship within the field of central bank expertise and sustainable finance. The scholarship has a special focus on how the experts of systemically important central banks integrate climate change into their expertise and activities, how they coordinate with each other on this issue in transnational settings and, finally, how they coordinate with the financial sector with a view to normalizing sustainable investment. We are interested in a PhD project that 1) conducts qualitative and quantitative research across several central banks of systemic importance to global finance in order to better understand the spectrum of reactions to climate change among central bank experts and 2) theorizes the distinctive nature of the emerging sustainable finance regime and the place that central bank expertise has within it.

The Department of Organization (IOA) pursues a problem-oriented, business in society approach to understand and intervene in organizations and institutions. Our research is driven by an interest in organization as a practical, situated, contested and changing matter. Our approach is interdisciplinary and combines social-scientific traditions such as organization theory, sociology, science and technology studies, political economy, and social psychology in the analysis of organizing processes and their outcomes. Methodologically, we value qualitative research methods highly and often adopt case study and fieldwork methodology.    

The teaching responsibilities associated with the scholarship comprise undergraduate teaching and supervision in subjects such as organizational analysis, international political economy, and qualitative methods.

Research  
In recent years board work, including selecting the right corporate
governance standards, has emerged as an important, new topic for business practices and research. Board leadership, combined with strong Corporate Governance principles, is essential in long-term value creation. Boards are becoming more active in various functions of the business and therefore seen as proactive value creators. Board complexity, including essential areas like leadership, compliance and risk management, has increased dramatically. The strategic dimension of both local and international board work is becoming exceptionally demanding due to changes in business models, new technology,
globalization, increasing regulation and unpredictable market conditions.

Hence, the responsibilities of board members are expected to increase. The environment will require more diversity, different skill sets and different decision-making patterns. At the same time company stakeholders, including shareholders, regulators and media, are becoming more demanding and continuously raise the standards for board members, managers and investors.     Applicants
are required to develop a well-specified research proposal, which should relate to one or more of the following thematic areas: 

  • Corporate governance drivers in
    M&A transactions among Danish SMEs focussing on long-term and sustainable value creation for the corporation, shareholders and employees. It would be of particular value of this research proposal could be linked to assessing the actual skill base of the acquiring board and/or management team(s)
  • Competences and complementarities needed in the boardroom and among top-managers in order successfully to activate knowledge synergies and merge firm cultures. 

  The Department will give priority to applicants with high grades
from their universities and students with a strong quantitate skill base      The three-year PhD programme at CBS allows you to conduct research under the supervision of CBS professors, supported by research training courses. The programme is highly international, and you are expected to participate in international research conferences and to spend time abroad as a visiting PhD student.

PhD in organizing megaprojects

The Department of Organization at Copenhagen Business School invites applications for a vacant PhD scholarship within the field of project studies. Megaprojects, such as Fehmarn Belt or the development of new metro lines are used increasingly frequently to accomplish large-scale changes. Due to its enormous budgets, the rather likely cost overruns have severe financial impact not only for the actors involved, but also for society in large. Why are megaprojects so challenging? While the study of megaprojects is blooming, there is still more to explore, and plenty of new avenues for theoretical developments concerning the nature and challenges of organizing megaprojects. We encourage applications investigating the organization of megaprojects, taking, for instance, a decision-making perspective, a learning perspective, a sense-making perspective, or a sociological perspective.  

Themes could include, but are not limited to:    
• What is the role of leadership organizing megaprojects?    
• How are megaprojects strategized?    
• How is uncertainty and ambiguity handled in megaprojects?    
• How is cognition distributed in megaprojects?    

Department of Organization (IOA) pursues a problem-oriented, business in society approach to understanding and intervening in organizations and institutions. Our research is driven by an interest in organization as a practical, situated, contested and changing matter. Our approach is interdisciplinary and combines social-scientific traditions such as organization theory, sociology, science and technology studies, political economy, and social psychology in the analysis of organizing processes and their outcomes. Methodologically, we value qualitative research methods highly and often adopt case study and fieldwork methodology.    
The teaching responsibilities associated with the scholarship comprise undergraduate teaching and supervision in subjects such as organizational analysis, project management, and qualitative methods.     

The Department will give priority to applicants with high grades from their universities.  The three-year PhD programme at CBS allows candidates to conduct research under the supervision of CBS professors, supported by research training courses. The programme is highly international, and you are expected to participate in international research conferences and to spend time abroad as a visiting PhD student.

It is also required that the applicant shows an interest in joining the Department’s research environment, see http://uk.cbs.dk/ioa.
