Copenhagen Business School invites applications for a postdoc position in entrepreneurship at the Department of Strategy and Innovation. Expected starting date is 1 September 2022.
The Department of Strategy and Innovation has an emphasis on Strategy and Innovation – as indicated by the name – but there is equal emphasis on Entrepreneurship and International Business. The four areas are the pillars that the department is resting on in its teaching and research activities. The number of staff in the department is approximately 80. This includes about 45 faculty members (professors, associate professors, tenure track assistant professors), 7 administrative staff members, and 30 members of staff who are hired on temporary contracts as research assistants, post docs or PhD students.
The department’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, combining strategy and/or internationalization theory with insights from economics, sociology, psychology, and economic geography. Methodologically, the department places considerable emphasis on the solid application of empirical methods, featuring qualitative interview studies, surveys, register data, or experiments.
The postdoc position is time-limited to 3 years and connected to the research activities of the Maersk Mc-Kinney Møller Chair of Entrepreneurship of which the current holder is Professor José Mata. The focus of the research program of the Chair is to understand the origins of entrepreneurial organizations, their strategies, and their implications for the organizations and society.
The program investigates topics such as: What leads individuals to create new ventures? What makes some existing organizations more entrepreneurial than others? Which strategies do people and organizations adopt to become entrepreneurial? What are the implications of the strategies adopted for the success of the ventures? What are the implications of the presence of such organizations for society?
- Applicants must have completed a PhD in Management, Economics, or other related social science disciplines before the beginning of the fellowship. Prior work (including but not limited to dissertation) must involve working with large datasets.
- Excellent academic record and work ethic required.
