PhD Scholarships in the Department of Strategy and Innovation

Copenhagen Business School invites applications for a number of vacant PhD scholarships (3-5) at the Department of Strategy and Innovation. Expected starting date is 1 September 2020 

The Department of Strategy and Innovation’s (SI) 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. The department’s research is generally cross-disciplinary. Faculty members have backgrounds in management, economics, sociology and economic geography. The theoretical foundation for research in these areas is eclectic, combining strategy, innovation, and/or internationalization theory with insights from economics, sociology, psychology, and economic geography. The department has 55 faculty members (professors, associate professors, tenure track assistant professors), 7 administrative staff, and 30 members of staff who are hired on temporary contracts as research assistants, post docs or PhD students.   

The department puts substantial emphasis on the solid application of scientific research method. The department has a pluralistic approach to research methods that includes, for example, formal theoretical models, quantitative empirical methods such as (lab and field) experiments, econometric applications to register data or survey data, as well as qualitative research methods. PhD project proposals should be based on coherent theoretical arguments and contain well-informed methodological considerations.  To find out more about the department please go to http://www.cbs.dk/si

SI particularly invites for PhD project applications pertaining to the following broad topics, although applications that address other topics within the research scope of the department will also be considered:

ESG and firm innovation: Meeting environmental, social, and governance (ESG) requirements has become strategically important for firms. How do firms devise innovation strategies that live up to ESG requirements, and how do they consider stakeholder concerns while leveraging stakeholder collaboration? 

Human Capital and the Future of Work: Many firms face fundamental changes, e.g. through digitalization, that constrain the strategic value of human capital acquired in the same firm or industry. New skills and experiences are required to rethink products and processes. How can firms find such human capital by hiring individuals from new organizational contexts for revealing and building human capital that is transferable to firms facing fundamental changes? This project will rely on large-scale data analyses of Danish linked employer-employee data. 

The Evolution of Organizational Networks: The analysis of organizational social networks has attracted the attention of scholars, business professionals, and policymakers. The project centers on the value of connections in a network, and causally links the strategic positioning of nodes in the social space to performance. It will investigate how such structures and positions are formed and evolve and conduct longitudinal analyses of relational (network) data with the intent to shed new light on the microfoundations of network change.

Digital Platforms and Ecosystems: How do they transform existing value chains? Digital platforms are shaking up industries by introducing innovations in market architecture – i.e., new marketplace infrastructures that offer new ways products and services are connected, accessed and consumed. This can represent new opportunities for incumbent firms in a sector, but alter significantly existing value chains and erode the value of incumbents’ assets and their sources of competitive advantage. One question in this context concerns how platform market architecture innovations affect the value of incumbents’ core and complementary assets.

The role of human capital in new forms of open and distributed innovation: New technologies – specifically rapid advances in information and communication technologies – and their extensive use, increased customer demands and shorter product life cycles have triggered new forms of creation and innovative practices. The project studies the nature and role of human capital in these new forms of open and distributed innovation, and identifies relevant characteristics and processes that can eventually be translated into innovative leadership models, human resource management practices and related educational trainings. 

How do entrepreneurs mobilize human capital resources for their ventures? Founders and startups get most of the attention in academic, public, and policy debates. However, for every founder there is often several early employees taking nearly equal risks by joining an early-stage company. Mobilizing human resources to startups is nevertheless challenging. This project focuses on particular factors that may explain how entrepreneurs mobilize personnel for their ventures and the implications of hiring strategies for new venture performance. It will rely on quantitative methods using Danish register data. 

What influences user innovators to start their own firms? The case of patient/caregiver innovators: Patient innovators are user innovators who come up with novel treatments and medical/non-medical devices to help them cope with their own disease/health-condition. Sometimes user innovators realize that their innovative solutions have a significant market potential and decide to become producers, i.e. they are “user entrepreneurs.” This study will focus on healthcare users and investigate the factors that influence the decision of patient/caregiver innovators to develop their own ventures. The project will build on data from patient-innovation.com, a repository of about 2000 medical innovations developed by patients/caregivers for their own use.

The MNC and inequality: The purpose of the project is to understand the relationship between the width and depth of different multinational corporation (MNC) activities and the prevalence of inequality in different forms (primarily in host, but also home, locations). 

Parenthood and Gender Inequality in Science: What are the effects on scientific productivity and subsequent career progression for women compared to men after they become parents? And how does the interaction between family structure, social norms and attitudes influence the effect of parenthood on scientific work? These questions will be answered using a combination of qualitative and quantitative (registry, publications, etc.) data on scientists affiliated to Danish universities. More details about this project can be found at https://www.cbs.dk/en/research/departments-and-centres/department-of-strategy-and-innovation/research/parenthood-and-inequality-in-science

Post Doc. position for the research project: “AI Reuse: theorizing reuse in ML Systems”

Copenhagen Business School is seeking a post-doctoral fellow for a position of 2 years as part of the collaborative research project, “AI Reuse: theorizing reuse in ML Systems”, at the Department of Management, Society and Communication (MSC).
The collaborative research project is sponsored by the Independent Research Fund Denmark and comprising Copenhagen Business School and Durham University.

Context

Our multi-year research project investigates how reuse of data and algorithms occur in AI / machine learning (ML) systems and the ethical and political questions these reuse processes give rise to. Based on this work the project will develop strategies and recommendations that can help the Danish public sector make responsible decisions in relation to ML systems and that will also advance the international research agenda on the politics of machine learning. Focusing on ethics, machine learning, politics and governance, an interdisciplinary team of researchers from Copenhagen Business School and Durham University will work closely with stakeholders to co-produce original knowledge on the ethical and political issues that arise with reuse of data and algorithms in ML systems. The project will use a range of qualitative and quantitative methods

MSC brings together scholars from a range of research areas within management, communication and the broader social sciences and humanities, studying organisations in global environments and the interaction and interdependencies of business, society and government.  

Responsibilities

The successful candidate will support the various aspects of the project under the guidance of the Project Coordinator Associate Professor Nanna Bonde Thylstrup and in collaboration with the Project Co-Investigator Professor (MSO) Mikkel Flyverbom (CBS) and Project Co-Investigator Professor Louise Amoore (Durham University).

In concrete terms, the candidate will be instrumental in developing theoretical and methodological frameworks for mapping processes of data reuse within broader ML ecologies. This entails exploring pioneering critical mixed-methods to capture the “lives and afterlives of data and algorithms” and the ethical layers of complex AI ecologies.

The postdoc is thus expected to act as a team member, working with the rest of the group on literature review on key themes, conduct qualitative research, help organize and analyse data, co-author papers suitable for publications in high quality academic journals where relevant, contribute to the dissemination of the research, including developing and managing online materials and social media and co-organize events and meetings relating to the project in Copenhagen, Denmark.   

To fulfill the requirements of the position, the applicant chosen is expected to be physically present at Copenhagen Business School on a regular basis, in some periods more intensely than others.

The post doc is a non-tenured research position. 

Qualification requirements

In order to be considered for the position applicants must have research qualifications at least corresponding to a successfully completed PhD degree.

We are looking for a scholar who works at the intersection of the social sciences or humanities and machine learning. We seek interdisciplinary thinkers who have an interest and experience in researching AI / ML ecologies and their ethical and political implications. 

Fields of specialization and / or interest might include, but are not limited to: Media Studies, Science & Technology Studies, Computer science, Information Systems, Critical Data and Algorithm Studies, Business School/Management/Organization Studies, Anthropology, Geography, Cultural Studies or Political Science. We encourage applications from scholars who have an interest in post/decolonizing perspectives, feminist science studies, critical race studies and queer studies. Good organizational skills and a desire to work in collaborative and interdisciplinary research environments is a plus. The applicant will be responsible for his/her own research as well as the organization of portions of the group work (co-hosting labs events co-organize workshops etc.). 

In assessing applications, particular emphasis will be placed on research potential. Emphasis is placed on research relevant to the job description.

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.
