Copenhagen Business School

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. We encourage applications that address these themes within the fields of political economy, organisational sociology, and public administration. The PhD student will benefit from the strong expertise within the Department of Organization on financial governance in general and central banking in particular, as well as in the relevant quantitative and ethnographic methods for studying these practitioners. The political economy group provides a robust research community with regular meetings and an active mentorship tradition.    

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.     

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.

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.

PhD scholarship in Industrial Foundation Governance

Copenhagen Business School invites applications for a vacant PhD scholarship in Industrial Foundation Governance at the Center for Corporate Governance (CCG), which is an independent cross-disciplinary research center under the Department of Accounting.

CCG is one of the leading corporate governance centers in Europe. Our research and teaching activities focus on ownership structures (including industrial foundations, mutuals and owner-managed businesses), board work (including board structure and board leadership), and GRC (Governance, Risk and Compliance).

The project in Industrial Foundation Governance – is funded by the Novo Nordisk foundation – and will undertake research and teaching on industrial foundation governance at a high international level while promoting knowledge of the industrial foundation model outside of Denmark. “Industrial foundations” is an academic term for foundations that own companies. Other terms widely used are corporate foundations.

Typically, the foundations are charitable but they also play an important role as business owners or enterprise foundations. The structure is common in Northern Europe, particularly in Denmark, and poses special challenges and opportunities for corporate governance. For example, industrial foundations often aim to be responsible, long-term owners, but may be constrained by limited access to external finance.

Key areas of interest to industrial foundation governance can influence value creation, corporate responsibility, long-termism, active ownership, board roles and compensation policies. Most of these issues are of general concern to businesses around the world, but they play a special role in industrial foundations and foundation-owned companies.

Previous research in the area is summarized in the homepage of the center’s research project on industrial foundations (www.tifp.dk) and on the new established homepage for the Novo Nordisk endowed chair in industrial foundations http://bit.do/novo-endowed-chair.

Research

The ph.d. student is intended to contribute to the center’s ongoing research in industrial foundations (foundations that own companies, see www.tifp.dk) as well as other long-term ownership structures like family business, state-ownership or mutual/cooperatives. Familiarity industrial foundations is not required, but we seek a candidate with enthusiasm for high quality research (including A-level publications) and quantitative analysis. Team spirit and willingness to engage with business contacts cooperation are important secondary qualifications.

The position holder is expected to work with the endowed professor in industrial foundation governance to maintain and develop global research leadership, which involves data collection and data access, econometric and statistical analysis, participation in international conferences, seminars and workshops. In accordance with CBS research policy, the student is guaranteed freedom of research within the research area in question.

The Department will give priority to applicants with high grades from their universities and students with a strong quantitate skill base.

Postdoc position in Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technologies

Copenhagen Business School invites applications for a vacant postdoc position in Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technologies at the Department of Digitalization.

The Department of Digitalization cares about the interaction of people, data and technology in all of its manifestations. We study how individuals, groups, organizations and society can grow and prosper by capitalizing on digital technologies.

Core research areas that the postdoc might cover:

  • Distributed Ledger Technologies
  • Blockchain Platforms
  • Software Development and Open Source Technologies
  • Distributed Systems Architecture

The position is designed for a well-organized, highly motivated individual who is willing and able to work on a project that aims to design and develop a prototype platform that will allow Danish companies in the lifestyle and design industry to gain experience and experiment with the Blockchain and IoT technologies, in order to improve the transparency, traceability, and authentication in their supply chains, from producers to consumers.

The postdoc position is framed in the context of the Danish national project “Avanceret Blockchain i Dansk Design (ABCD)” funded by Industriens Fond (Industry Foundation). The main goal of the project is to investigate the adoption of Blockchain and IoT technologies by the Danish companies in the lifestyle and design industry. Real world business case scenarios from the Danish companies in the lifestyle and design industry will be carried out in the project.

The specific objective of the postdoc position is to support the project from a technical perspective, to design and develop a prototype blockchain based system that showcases how blockchain and IoT technologies can be used to enhance the traceability of the products across both the upstream and the downstream of the supply chain. The project will also focus on the servicing and retirement of the products by using blockchain and IoT technology to re-circulate and recycle the end products, to be potentially reintroduced in the supply chain, following the principle of the circular economy. There is also pretty good scope of doing research in theoretical aspects of computer science/ blockchain (e.g. using formal methods) if the candidate is interested in pursuing research in those directions, in addition to meeting up the project goals.

Therefore, the postdoc position will include at least the following tasks:

  • Specification of desired functional and non­functional requirements of the system
  • Selection of appropriate blockchain technologies
  • Design and development of a blockchain­based system that meets the requirements.
  • Coordinate a number of MSc students on blockchain­related research

The postdoc is a non-tenured position for a 2-year period with research obligation but without any teaching obligations. However, if the postdoc candidate is willing to teach, it is possible to combine the postdoc position with teaching activities to make it as a 3-year fixed term postdoc position with research and teaching obligations. There will be plenty of opportunities to teach technical courses (such as Programming, Data Mining, Machine learning, Blockchain etc.) in the new Masters in Data Science Programme offered by this department.

To fulfill the requirements of the position, the applicant chosen is expected to be physically present on a regular basis and actively participate in the teaching and research activities of the Department.

The expected/earliest start date of the position is tentatively 01st September 2019.

PhD Position on the Leadership Development Industries in China

The Department of Management, Society, and Communication (MSC) at Copenhagen Business School invites applications for a funded three-year PhD research project in the field of leadership and leadership development.

The Sino-Danish Center in Beijing will contribute 75% of the funding for this PhD position as part of a broader MSC research project on the organizational, professional, cultural, and commercial dynamics of leadership development and the leadership industries in China. MSC faculty leading this project will supervise the PhD candidate in collaboration with a co-supervisor from the University of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, with further support from project partners in the Department of Organization and Human Resources at Renmin Business School, the Renmin University of China.

In order to receive SDC funding, the candidate must spend at least twelve months of the thirty-six month PhD project period in Beijing, and contribute to SDC educational activities in Beijing (see the SDC’s website on the specific requirements: http://sdc.university/research/phd). The candidate will work closely with CBS colleagues and Chinese partners in the “Leadership Industries” project to conduct primary research in China, to organize relevant workshops and other activities in Beijing, and to disseminate and to publish project findings.

We encourage applications with the potential to make significant empirical and/or theoretical contributions to the “Leadership Industries in China” research project, which will explore the significance of the rise and spread of the leadership industries in China both in their own right and as a microcosm of broader, global developments. The project defines the leadership industries as consisting of all those individuals and organizations that generate revenue or professional advantage by responding to and further promoting demand for leadership products and services. These include consulting; in-house training and development; executive search; coaching; leadership assessment; inspirational speaking; seminar, event and conference organizing; media and publishing; and leadership education and research in universities, business schools, and other academic institutes. The project builds on and seeks to extend a “production of leadership” perspective. This theoretical perspective draws on the sociology of the production of culture explore how factors including financial considerations, organizational pressures, professional norms, provider practices, and consumer demand contribute to the shape and content of leadership products and services, and how the market for these products and services in turn influences the perception and practice of leadership itself.

Relevant research topics and issues could include, for example:

  1. The introduction, spread, reception, and adaptation of Western style leadership development, consulting, coaching practices, and the coaching industry in the Chinese context.
  2. The competitive dynamics of the market for leadership development consulting in China, and the structural and strategic dynamics that characterize the key players in the leadership industries in China, with a focus on whether or not the rapid growth of the Chinese economy can catalyze the innovation of new kinds of leadership development practices.
  3. The legitimization and professionalization of leadership industry players and practices in China, in the context of the institutional, legal, political, and cultural constraints and challenges facing the leadership industries in the Chinese context .
  4. The analysis of specific leadership development practices of note in China, for example, the practices of major Chinese companies such as Alibaba, TenCent, Huawei, or Xiaomi, and the manner in which these practices shape and influence the broader market for leadership development products and services.
  5. Alternative conceptualizations and practices of leadership development taking place in China, for example via informal organizational settings and networks, non-profit institutions and foundations, grass-roots social change efforts, and other civil society associations, and the manner in which such practices hold the potential to transform approaches to leadership in more conventional contexts.

We invite interested applicants from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds, including but not limited to leadership and organization studies, business studies, communication studies, culture studies, sociology or anthropology. The Department of Management, Society, and Communication carries out research on the relationship between business and society from a number of different disciplinary perspectives in a variety of contexts. Several department researchers connected to the department’s research cluster on Communication, Organization and Governance (COG) devote most or all of their research to leadership issues. As a business school department, we are interested both in how the project can contribute to academic theory and research on leadership and leadership development, as well as in how the project can inform the practices of commercial organizations, governmental and non-governmental organizations, and civil society organizations. For more information on the department, please consult: http://uk.cbs.dk/msc.  

Applicants must also exhibit 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.
