Copenhagen Business School

PhD within the fields of economic sociology, political economy, and the sociology of professions

Copenhagen Business School invites applications for two vacant PhD fellowships within the fields of economic sociology, political economy, and the sociology of professions, at the Department of Organization.

    The Department of Organization pursues a problem-oriented, business in society approach to understanding and intervening in organizations and organizational life. Our approach combines social-scientific traditions such as organization theory, political economy, sociology, social psychology and ethnography. Core research areas of the Department of Organization are (1) organization studies, (2) economic sociology, (3) public administration, and (4) political economy.

    Teaching responsibilities of the Department comprise undergraduate, graduate and doctoral teaching. IOA teaches core courses in organizational analysis, strategy, organizational behavior, and qualitative methods. The Department is especially active in teaching in the HA i Almen Erhvervsøkonomi, HA i Projektledelse, HA i Erhvervsøkonomi og psykologi, and BSc in Business Administration and Service Management. IOA faculty also teach in the International Business and Politics (BSc and MSc), European Business (BSC), and Business Administration and Sociology (BSC) programmes.

    We encourage applications on any research area falling broadly within the theme of expert networks and market creation. The two doctoral fellowships are in connection with the new project “Expert Niches: How Local Networks Leverage Markets”, funded by the Velux Foundation. Information on the project can be found here: https://www.cbs.dk/en/forskning/cbs-forskningsprojekter/oversigt-forskningsprojekter/4bf4eecf-07f9-41cf-9365-7dcc534fc2ec.   It is anticipated that the doctoral students will contribute in the empirical areas of enzyme production and, separately, fine dining. The project is led by Leonard Seabrooke and Eleni Tsingou, both in the Department of Organization.

    The Department will give priority to applicants with high grades from their universities.

  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. 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, see https://www.cbs.dk/en/research/departments-and-centres/department-of-organization.

    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 organization of this type (highlighting, for example, relevant business, educational and dissemination activities).

PhD Scholarship on the Firm in the Informal Economy

The societal presence and impact of the informal economy are inescapable. Around the world and especially in areas of widespread poverty, unregistered and unregulated organizational entities operate in the part of the economy that either fails to adhere to the established institutional rules or are denied their protection. Reports from the International Labor Organization find that 48% of the labor force works in the informal economy in North Africa, 72% in Sub-Saharan Africa, 51% in Latin America, and 65% in Asia. Studies from the International Monetary Fund find that the informal economy account for 10-20% of the GDP in developed countries and as much as 60% in developing countries.     The aim of this PhD scholarship is to explore the drivers and consequences of how firms in a variety of informal economy contexts structure their organizations. As has been a cornerstone in organizational theory for decades, firms must structure their organizations in ways that match the external environment to operate effectively. However, the nature of the informal economy firms may prevent them from effectively realizing the potential of their organizations. For example, the absence of formal contracts to coordinate firm and human resources calls into question the role and effectiveness of non-contractual coordination mechanisms, such as trust, reciprocity, common grounds, and social networks. Moreover, as many firms in the informal economy have no other option than to operate informally due to the costs and difficulties of registration and taxes it is uncertain how they systematize and effectively exploit different coordination mechanisms.    

This PhD candidate will be expected to collect rich qualitative and quantitative data and develop rigorous theory to understand how firms in the informal economy structure their organizations. Geographically, this project will focus on industry clusters in Sub-Saharan Africa where the share of the informal economy is higher than in any other region in the world. The ideal candidate therefore has an educational background in the area of organizational theory and/or development studies and possess strong skills in both quantitative and qualitative methods.   

General information 

This PhD candidate will be affiliated with the Department of Strategy and Innovation (SI) and be part of the research project “The firm in the informal economy” funded by the Carlsberg Foundation and headed by Associate Professor Marcus M. Larsen.     

SI employs an international group of 45 full-time faculty members, as well as part-time faculty, postdocs, and PhD students. The core research and teaching area of the Department is strategy, innovation, entrepreneurship and international business. SI’s stated aim is to continue to be among the leading departments in strategy and innovation in Europe.   

A PhD scholarship runs for a period of 3 years starting September 1, 2019, or by mutual agreement. The scholarship includes a fully 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 23.770 (app. 3,160 euro) up to DKK 28.964 (app. 3,860 euro) depending on seniority, plus a pension contribution totaling 17,1 % of the base salary.
