PhD scholarship on challenges of European integration for the Nordic countries

Copenhagen Business School invites applications for a PhD scholarship that focuses on issues of European integration for the Nordic countries. The Phd Scholarship will be in the field of social and political sciences. The PhD scholarship is part of the Nordforsk-financed ‘Reimagning Norden in an Evolving World’ (ReNEW) research excellence hub, which focuses on research about the Nordic region. Please read more about the ReNew research hub and the themes it focuses on here: https://www.cbs.dk/forskning/institutter-centre/department-of-business-and-politics/nyheder/cbs-receives-grant-from-nordforsk-new-research-hub-renew. CBS will employ one other ReNEW PhD student (in humanities), as well as two post-docs (one in social sciences and one in humanities). The intention is that the CBS ReNEW PhDs and post docs start up in the autumn of 2018. ReNEW PhD students are introduced to a vibrant research community with many possibilities for summer school, workshop and conference participation.
The PhD will be affiliated with the Comparative European and Public Policy group at the Department of International Economics, Government and Business. The research group engages in research activities that consider the following disciplinary fields and sub-fields: Comparative public policy, EU public policy, public management, comparative politics, comparative welfare state analysis and positive political economy. The group´s research work often serves as a point of reference for think-tanks, policymakers, business organizations and the media. The applicant’s profile must fit with the core research themes of the Comparative European and Public Policy group. Read more about the research themes here: https://www.cbs.dk/en/research/departments-and-centres/department-of-business-and-politics/research/research-themes/comparative-and-european-public-policy. The Comparative European and Public Policy group has been merged with parts of Department of International Economics and Management to form a new department focused on international business and politics on 1st July, 2018. For this reason we refer you to both departments´ homepages: https://www.cbs.dk/forskning/institutter-centre/department-of-business-and-politic and https://www.cbs.dk/en/research/departments-and-centres/department-of-international-economics-and-management.
This Phd call seeks applicants in social and/or political science, which focus on one or several challenge(s) of European Integration for the Nordic countries. Major challenges, such as third country migration and the Eurozone crisis, have strained cooperation among the countries of the European Union. The political response to the Eurozone crisis and austerity policy in the South has been an increase of far-left parties, while the Nordic EU countries have seen a strengthening of nationalist right-wing parties. The nationalist right-wing parties in the Nordics are skeptical to migration, but also to further European integration in various areas of public policy, especially those implying re-distribution. The free movement of labour, a cornerstone of European integration, is questioned increasingly, despite evidence that EU labour migration contributes positively to the economies of the host countries. This context calls for research that analyses one of these or other major challenges of European integration for and/or in the Nordic countries. Preference is given to projects that use qualitative methodology, if possible including comparative analysis. Various types of qualitative methods may be used.
Teaching responsibilities of the Comparative European and Public Policy group comprise undergraduate, graduate and doctoral teaching. The group teaches, for example, in the International Business and Politics (BSc and MSc), European Business (BSC), and Business Administration and Sociology (BSC) programmes.
High priority will be given to applicants with high grades from their universities. Applicants should have completed (or be near the completion of) a Master’s degree in political science, sociology, political economy or related disciplines. Having a specialization in European studies is of added value.
The three-year PhD programme at CBS allows you to conduct research under the supervision of CBS professors. Research training courses are an important part of the programme. The programme is highly international, and the candidate is expected to participate in international research conferences and to spend time abroad as a visiting PhD student.
See the CBS homepage for more information about the PhD programme, http://uk.cbs.dk/phd.
It is also required that the applicant shows an interest in joining the department´s research environment.
CBS PhD graduates are held in high esteem not only in academia and research institutions but also in government and business where their research qualifications are increasingly demanded. One third of CBS PhD graduates go on to employment outside universities and public research institutions.
Copenhagen Business School has a broad commitment to the excellence, distinctiveness and relevance of its teaching and research programmes. Candidates who wish to join us should demonstrate enthusiasm for working in an organisation of this type (highlighting, for example, relevant business, educational and dissemination activities). For further information please contact: CBS leader of ReNEW, Professor (MSO) Caroline de la Porte, tel.: +45 3815 3550, e-mail cdlp.dbp@cbs.dk or Head of Secretariat Anne Suhr, aws.dbp@cbs.dk.

PhD in young people’s self-organised networks and communities, democratic governance and social media

PhD scholarship in young people’s self-organised networks and communities, democratic governance and social media funded by a grant from Tuborg Foundation
Copenhagen Business School invites applications for a vacant three-year PhD scholarship in the CISTAS project at the Department of Management, Politics and Philosophy (MPP).
The PhD-scholarship is linked to questions about young people’s self-organised networks and communities, democratic governance and social media. The project is an action-oriented research project that examines how to ensure that young people’s spontaneous self-organised communities develop democratically and how social media can be used as a positive tool for this. The project aims to investigate how inclusion/ exclusion mechanism takes place in new and informal associations and networks, and the role played by social media and its consequences for democratic governance. For a more detailed description, see www.cistas.dk.
The PhD scholarship will be positioned at Department of Management, Politics and Philosophy (MPP). We are a uniquely multi-disciplinary research department with the ambition to make our research in management and organisation studies as well as adjacent fields known to students, companies, public institutions, and research colleagues as innovative, creative and critical/reflexive. A multi-disciplinary dialogue that challenges and combines academic disciplines and perspectives ties research at the department together. The department is committed to research-based education and to bring this understanding into play in society in a constructive, engaged, and valuable manner. A key focus of MPP is to publish its research with highly ranked academic journals and book publishers across a broad spectrum of areas, reflecting the department’s multidisciplinary set-up. Across the department, there is a keen interest in developing new forms of teaching and learning environments in collaboration with CBS faculty, international researchers, students and partner organisations.
The research areas of the Department can be seen at www.cbs.dk/mpp, but the research activities of the PhD scholarship is associated with the interdisciplinary research project ‘Civil Society in the Shadow of the State’ (CISTAS) which analyses the Danish civil society raising the questions; What role has civil society had in the development of the modern state and the welfare state? What role does civil society play today and what role will it play in the future? The CISTAS project has an extensive international network, and it is expected that the applicant will spend time abroad as visiting PhD fellow, e.g. with partners at Stanford Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society or another relevant research centre. The PhD project is funded by Tuborgfondet, and the applicant will have a particular responsibility to disseminate research knowledge to the foundation and take part in collaboration with its secretariat.
