Copenhagen Business School

Postdoc in Business and Government at Copenhagen Business School (4 years)

EGB invites applications for a vacant position for a four-year postdoc in Business and Government with a 25% teaching load. The postdoc will be part of the project “Tycoon Candidates: Why Wealthy Business Candidates Get Elected for Office and How it Matters”. The project is led by professor (mso) Mogens K. Justesen and funded by the Independent Research Fund Denmark. The postdoc will be based at the Department of International Economics, Government and Business (EGB). 
EGB is a multidisciplinary department that conducts high-quality research in the fields of international business and political science with direct relevance to business, policy-makers and the public. Research at the department focuses on two principal focus areas Business & Government and International Business, in relation to societal challenges. These challenges include the consequences of inequality; the impact of technological change and digital transformation; the ethical dilemmas facing MNEs, regulatory challenges, the changes brought about by emerging markets and the rise of Asia; the consequences of global shifts for public policy, and the relationship between business and democracy. Faculty apply advanced quantitative and qualitative methods to generate systematic knowledge about business-government relations and international business relations. To learn more about the research and education of the department, please visit the departmental homepage here.

The project
The “Tycoon Candidate” project consists of two work packages. Work package I examines why ordinary voters – including low-income groups – sometimes support wealthy businesspeople running for office in democratic elections. Work package II moves on to examine how the election of businesspeople for political offices matters for the firms they are connected to and public policies provided to voters and the wider society.

The postdoc will conduct work on Work Package I, which involves research on voter support for wealthy business candidates. To this end, the postdoc will be involved in designing, implementing and analysing two large-scale surveys with survey experiments in South Africa and Ukraine – which will constitute the empirical backbone of the research and articles for Work Package I. It is essential that applicants have strong research potential within the area of the project. It is also essential that applicants have excellent skills in quantitative methods, particularly the design and analysis of surveys and survey experiments (including conjoint experiments).

The postdoc will be part of a team conducting research within the project. Strong abilities to work on research in a team and collaborate/co-author with other team members is essential for the position. A certain amount of travelling and field work in connection with the project should be expected.

Non-exhaustive examples of research areas that the postdoc may cover:

  • Political behavior and voter support for business candidates
  • Survey design and experimental methods
  • Political economy of development
  • Business-government relations
  • Money in politics

The postdoc will have a 25% teaching obligation. Much of EGB’s teaching is affiliated with the BSc/MSc in International Business and Politics (IBP); the BSc/MSc in International Business (IB); and the BSc in International Business in Asia (IBA).

Qualifications
The applicant must have completed – or be close to completing – a PhD in the political science, political economy, or a related field. The applicant must have excellent research and teaching skills and excellent professional proficiency in English (written and spoken).

PhD scholarship in Auditing

Copenhagen Business School invites applicants for a PhD position in Auditing. We especially invite PhD proposals that suggest novel approaches to the study of

  • The value of audit and other assurance services to inform discussions about, for example, the future of audit, auditor reporting and audit exemption (regulation of SME-audits).
  • Emerging technologies in auditing to develop understanding of whether and how auditing actually becomes more effective and more efficient through automated processes and the application of technology.
  • Sustainability assurance to provide insights into how, and with which consequences, auditors (or other assurance practitioners) provide assurance on climate-related and other sustainability matters.
  • Regulator-auditor interaction to address problems and potential pathways in public oversight practices, including (but not limited to) the role of firm-level oversight practices, dialogue as well as the role of ad hoc regulatory investigations alongside routine quality inspections.
  • Client-auditor interactions to focus on the governance role of audit committees and how and when auditor-audit committee interactions produce desirable effects and when they might have unintended consequences.
  • Auditing in the context of audit firm organization and governance to provide understanding of how increasingly intense and sophisticated audit firm-level systems (e.g. quality management, incentive systems, performance measurement as well as culture/tone-at-the-top) operate to manage and control behavior within audit firms.

The project should speak to contemporary concerns in auditing, and aim to contribute to public, professional and company level debates. Thus, the PhD must be energized from engaging with firms and professionals as part of the research and the research dissemination and we encourage proposals to demonstrate potential for engagement.

The PhD position is at the department of accounting. The PhD will work in close collaboration with the supervisors and benefit from the international research environment at the department of accounting and at CBS. This project is eligible for financial support for fieldwork, data collection and register data. It is expected that the student will be supervised by Professor Thomas Riise Johansen (trj.acc@cbs.dk) and a second supervisor depending on research topic and methods. Candidates are strongly encouraged to contact Thomas for informal discussions and information about the position before submitting the application.

The three-year PhD programme at CBS gives you the opportunity to conduct research under the supervision of CBS’s associate professors and professors, supported by research related PhD courses.

Postdoc position in the field of Strategy/Organization Theory

The Department of Strategy and Innovation (SI) at Copenhagen Business School (CBS) is looking for a postdoctoral researcher. The position is time-limited to 2.5 years (with the potential of a 6 month extension) and connected to the project “Social Comparison and Reference Selection in Organizations”. Expected starting date is 1 November 2022 (but adaptable upon mutual agreement)

About the Department of Strategy and Innovation:

The Department of Strategy and Innovation (SI) is one of 11 departments within CBS. The department has about 50 faculty members, currently including 20 professors, 20 associate professors, 10 assistant professors, in addition to 8 postdocs and 19 PhD students.

SI’s ambition is to host 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 and cross-disciplinary, combining theoretical insights from strategy, international business, organizational theory, economics, sociology, psychology, and economic geography. Methodologically, the department places considerable emphasis on the solid application of empirical methods, featuring surveys, register data, experiments, and qualitative studies. Faculty members have published in top academic journals including the Academy of Management Journal, Strategic Management Journal, Organization Science, Management Science, Academy of Management Review, Journal of International Business Studies, Research Policy, among others.

About the project:

The “Social Comparison and Reference Selection in Organizations” project is aimed at improving our understanding about the phenomenon of comparisons between organizations. We know that such comparisons affect important firm actions and decisions (e.g., acquisitions, market expansions, product introductions, etc.), yet lack an understanding about how firms select comparison organizations (i.e., references) in the first place. Answering this and related questions about the consequences of selecting certain references is at the heart of the project.

A central benefit of the project is that the postdoc can build on existing proprietary data on organizations’ reference self-selection as well as on established simulations and computational experiments on the matter.

The postdoc position is a 2.5-year position (30 months) with 100% research obligations (i.e. no teaching obligations), starting in November 2022. If the successful applicant wishes to teach, teaching opportunities can be explored within the department. The Postdoc will work closely with Johannes Luger from SI and Dirk Martignoni (from USI Lugano, Switzerland). Short research stays at other collaborating institutions and visiting periods hosted by renowned scholars are optional.

The ideal candidate for the position will be a recent PhD graduate with strong technical skills in quantitative methods and with an interest in the research topic. Experience with computational or experimental methods is optional.

Qualifications:

  • Applicants must have completed, or be close to completing, a PhD from an accredited institution in the areas of Economics, Management, Strategy, Innovation, Entrepreneurship, or related.
  • A strong quantitative research record (or potential) and first-rate econometric skills. Working knowledge of Stata is desirable.
  • An excellent academic record and work ethic.
  • Excellent organizational and communication skills (both oral and written).
  • Proficiency in English.
  • Enthusiasm for research required. The ideal candidate will be thinking of this position as a platform to build skills towards a research career.
  • Willingness to move to and live in Denmark.

Main responsibilities:

  • Preparing existing datasets for econometric analyses and collaborating in new data collection (survey design and implementation, experimental design and implementation).
  • Conducting econometrics analyses.
  • Searching and reviewing relevant literature.
  • Contributing to and co-authoring leading journal publications.
  • Engaging with and regularly presenting the progress of their research within internal seminars and external events (e.g., international conferences).
  • Managing own research and administrative activities according to agreed timelines and deliverables.

Application:
Application must be sent via the electronic recruitment system, using the link below. The application must include:

  1. Cover letter describing the motivations to join the project, experience with quantitative methods.
  2. Proof of qualifications and a full CV.
  3. Any relevant information indicating experience in research management, industry co-operation and international cooperation.
  4. A complete, numbered list of publications (indicating titles, co-authors, page numbers and year) with an * marking of the academic productions to be considered during the review. A maximum of 5 publications for review are allowed. Applicants are encouraged to prioritize their publications or working papers in relation to the field of this job advertisement.

PhD Scholarship on Coolness in Business and Society at the Department of Marketing at Copenhagen Business School

Based in architecturally beautiful buildings in central Copenhagen, the Department of Marketing at Copenhagen Business School (CBS) is a leading provider of excellent research-based education. This is an exciting time for us, as we celebrated recently our 100th anniversary. Our strategy is unashamedly ambitious. Our goal is to be the undisputed leader in marketing education in Scandinavia and a leading marketing department on a European level, held in high esteem in terms of our research and education. Our mission is to deliver excellent research-led education to an international audience at all levels, and to engage with business and society.  

Faculty members are committed to rigorous theory development and theory-driven, empirical research—outcomes that are central goals for any reputed business school. The Department focuses on contributing to a holistic understanding of the interactions and activities in the marketplace. Thus, our research focuses on marketing, yet we draw on other academic disciplines to the extent that they improve the quality of our marketing research. We accordingly publish in both marketing and other relevant journals contained within the Academic Journal Guide (AJG; formerly ABS) ranking list. The research of the Department covers broad areas (often cross-disciplinary) in marketing. Faculty members use a wide range of methodologies, both qualitative and quantitative. Through our research-based teaching, we contribute across a palette of courses and programs at Copenhagen Business School.

The Department invites applications for a vacant PhD scholarship to conduct research on coolness. This PhD scholarship is part of the Carlsberg Foundation research project on “What is coolness and how can we create it? Understanding coolness and its important implications for business and society.” The PhD research will be executed under the guidance and in close collaboration with Associate Professor Florian Kock and an international research group. More information about the project can be found on Carlsberg Foundations webpage:

https://www.carlsbergfondet.dk/en/Forskningsaktiviteter/Bevillingsstatistik/Bevillingsoversigt/CF21_0594_Florian-Kock

We are looking for a PhD student who will be interested in and qualified to undertake quantitivate research in the domain of coolness with a focus on consumer research. Teaching responsibilities during the PhD program can comprise undergraduate and graduate courses. The Department will give priority to PhD applicants with a high grade point average (GPA), demonstrated expertise in quantitative methods, consumer and psychology research, and coolness research in particular.

The three-year PhD program at CBS will allow the PhD student to conduct research under the supervision of faculty (i.e., Associate Professor Florian Kock), supported by research training courses. The PhD program is highly international, and the PhD student is expected to participate in international research conferences and to spend time (ideally abroad) as a visiting PhD student at a leading university. See CBS’s homepage for more information about our PhD programs, http://uk.cbs.dk/phd. It is also required that the PhD student has an interest in joining the Department’s active research environment, see https://www.cbs.dk/en/research/departments-and-centres/department-of-marketing.

PhD graduates from CBS are held in high esteem not only in academia and research institutions, but also in government and business where their research qualifications increasingly are in demand. One third of our PhD graduates go on to employment outside universities and public research institutions.

At CBS, we have a broad commitment to the excellence, distinctiveness, and relevance of our research and teaching programs. PhD applicants who wish to join us should demonstrate enthusiasm for working in an organization of this type, highlighting, for example, relevant research, business, educational, and dissemination activities.

Please contact in the first place Florian Kock (fk.marktg@cbs.dk) for further information. Please visit our homepage https://www.cbs.dk/en/research/departments-and-centres/department-of-marketing to read about the department and www.cbs.dk/en/staff/fkmarktg to read about the research group leader.

Appointment and salary will be in accordance with the Danish Ministry of Finance’s agreement with the Central Academic Organization.

General Information

A PhD scholarship runs for a period of three years and includes teaching obligations (840 work hours). The scholarship is a salaried position, according to the national Danish collective agreement. The scholarship includes the tuition fees, office space, travel grants plus a salary, currently starting with per month app. DKK 27,363 up to DKK 33,045 depending on seniority plus a pension contribution totaling 17.1 %.

The PhD student will be enrolled in our CBS’ PhD School.

To be considered, the PhD applicant must have a basic training at a Master’s level (similar to the 3 + 2 Bologna process; see also later for specific requirements). An educational background in the social sciences is necessary. The applicant must have completed successfully a Master’s degree before commencing the PhD at CBS. Also, the applicant must absolutely be fluent in English, both in spoken and written forms.

A PhD application must include copies of a Master’s degree certificate (or other certificates of a corresponding level; grades for all courses and dissertation must appear on this certificate; see below), a brief curriculum vitae (CV), a list of any working papers and publications, and one copy of a selected written work (e.g., Master’s thesis).

Also, an application must include a document that details that the PhD applicant fulfils the following requirements:

  • 3-years 180 ECTS bachelor degree.
  • 2-years 120 ECTS master degree with a 30 ECTS master’s degree dissertation with a grade of minimum 10 (following CBS’s 7-point scale; the grade 10 on this 7-point scale is equal to 10/12 = 83.3% out of a maximum of 100%).

The document must also explain how the PhD applicant has attained the following graduate point average (GPA) score:

  • Either: a combined GPA of 8.2 on CBS’ 7-point scale (i.e., 8.2/12 = 68.3%). You combine your bachelor’s GPA and master’s GPA by applying the following calculation: (180 x Bachelor’s GPA + 120 x Master’s GPA) / 300.
  • Or: GPA of 9.5 (on CBS’s 7-point scale) in your master’s degree (corresponding to 9.5/12 = 79.2%).

This document (that details how the PhD applicant fulfils the requirements) should include a detailed overview of each of the PhD applicant’s course grades (bachelor and master degrees) including a detailed overview in an Excel table that translates each course grade into % (following CBS’ 7-point scale).

PhD scholarship in corporate power and legitimacy

PhD scholarship in Corporate Power and Legitimacy

 

Copenhagen Business School invites applications for a PhD fellowship in the political, societal and legal setting of the corporation at the Department of Management, Politics and Philosophy (MPP). 

The PhD position is a 3 year full-time contract connected to the Carlsberg Foundation research project “Corporate Subjects: An Intellectual History of the Corporation”. See more information at https://www.carlsbergfondet.dk/da/Forskningsaktiviteter/Bevillingsstatistik/Bevillingsoversigt/CF21_0401_Mathias-Hein-Jessen

The project team will consist of a PhD, an assistant professor and the PI for a duration of 3 years. The envisioned starting date of the position is November 1, 2022.

 

The central objective of the project is to analyze how corporations are and have been given existence

and legitimacy as political subjects through similarities and analogies as well as delineations from

human subjects and states, particularly through the notions of personhood, property, rights, citizenship, responsibility, liability and accountability. Applicants are required to develop a theoretically grounded research proposal with a clear empirical focus. We invite candidates from different disciplinary backgrounds in the social sciences and humanities, such as intellectual history, history, philosophy, sociology, political science and political theory.

Possible topics include (but are not limited to):

  • The constitution of the corporation as a responsible and accountable subject and citizen in discourses on corporate social responsibility, corporate accountability and corporate citizenship.
  • The corporation in the history of economic, political and juridical thought of the 20th and 21st centuries.
  • The development of the corporation as a subject with human, civil and constitutional rights in different regional or national settings (for instance US, UK, EU or Nordic legislation and political debates).
  • The specific corporate subject of the foundation, for instance in Nordic enterprise foundations.
  • The constitution of the corporation and corporate legitimacy in relation to societal challenges, for instance climate change, sustainability, democratic challenges, or others.

 

Core research areas of the Department of Management, Politics and Philosophy are organized into different research groups: Politics; Business History: Philosophy; Management & Entrepreneurship; and Law. Faculty within these groups have research backgrounds in all areas of law, political science, sociology, philosophy, history, anthropology, literature, theology, aesthetics, design and innovation, tourism and leisure management, cultural economics, leadership and strategy, pedagogic study, and other areas.

The position will be affiliated with the Politics group. What unites faculty is an overriding concern for the organization of the human within its multiple environments: work, nature, economy, civil association, the state, and corporation. MPP also participates in numerous interdisciplinary cross-CBS activities. In line with this concern, the PhD should demonstrate a capacity to bridge across several of these environments.

The three-year PhD programme at CBS gives you the opportunity to conduct research under the supervision of CBS’s associate professors and professors, supported by research related PhD courses. The programme is highly international, and you are expected to participate in international research conferences and to spend time at another research institution as a visiting PhD student.

PhD in organizing innovation in China

The Department of Organization at Copenhagen Business School invites applications for a vacant PhD scholarship within the field of organizing innovation. The scholarship is part of a research project on China’s role in world-class science infrastructure hosted at the Sino-Danish Centre in Beijing. The aim of this project is to analyse the interactions between: innovation policy, ecosystems of innovation, science-technology-innovation policy, mobility and attractiveness for international talents, innovation networks, technology transfer, and science collaboration/innovation networks. Empirically the focus is on the development of Huairou Science City, e.g. by taking on a holistic perspective to one or more specific case technologies (e.g. energy, nano-science, neuro-science). In this, the project will also look into ongoing and potential collaborations between Danish and Chinese scholars in a time of uncertainty. Relatively little is known about the role of China in the process of organizing global science, technology and innovation. This scholarship steps into this breach. Applications are encouraged from those with some experience of International Political Economy and the political economy of China. Chinese language ability is preferred, although not essential. The selection of the PhD stipend will not be based on prior methodological or theoretical preferences. However, applications should outline and reflect upon theoretical and methodological preferences. The holder of the scholarship will work within the fields of International Political Economy, economic sociology, organization studies, business and politics, economic geography, historical sociology and China studies.

IOA is an international department comprising 55 faculty, 35 PhD students, and 11 administrative staff. We pursue a problem-oriented, business in society approach to understanding and intervening in work places, organizations and networks. Our research is focused upon organizing processes and their outcomes and driven by an interest in organization and management as a practical, situated, contested and changing matter. This includes studies of private companies, public organizations, professional societies as well as NGOs. We investigate and discuss topics such as change and innovation processes, work and human resources, public management and governance, project management, institutional dynamics, market creation, expertise and power.

Our social-scientific approach includes scholarly traditions such as organization theory, sociology, political economy, economic geography, social psychology, and science and technology studies. We value qualitative methods highly and typically employ case studies, ethnographic methods, or social network analysis.

The teaching responsibilities associated with the scholarship comprise graduate teaching and supervision in subjects such as Business and Global Governance, Government and Business, Research Policy and Comparing Societies and Economic Systems.

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 co-supervision of CBS and University of the Chinese Academy of Sciences 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 in China. See the CBS homepage for more information about the PhD program, http://uk.cbs.dk/phd .

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

Please be aware, that the PhD project involves funding from Sino Danish Center/SDC, and therefore the PhD student: 

  • is required to spend time in a Chinese research environment. The specific period depends on the funding model, in this PhD case it is a full SDC scholarship which requires 12 months in a SDC/Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) research environment. 
  • is expected to contribute to the educational activities on the SDC Master’s programs in Beijing during their stay in China. 

See the SDC’s website on the specific requirements: http://sdc.university/research/phd/  Please note that it is not possible to get exemption from these conditions.
