PhD scholarship at the Department of Operations Management

PhD scholarship at the Department of Operations Management

The Department of Operations Management at Copenhagen Business School (CBS) invites applications for a vacant PhD scholarship about circular supply chain management, a topic closely related to the research areas of the Department. The starting date is expected to be in the summer 2020.

Copenhagen Business School (CBS) has over 22,000 students and more than 600 full-time professors on all levels. Being one of the largest business schools in Northern Europe, CBS covers a wide range of business-related academic disciplines. CBS is highly-ranked amongst business schools across the world. Based in architecturally beautiful buildings close to the center of Copenhagen, one of the world’s most exciting cities known for its striking spires, cutting-edge design and cycle-friendly streets, the Department of Operations Management is a leading provider of top-notch research-based education.

The research areas of the Department covers and integrates five academic research areas: Supply Chain Management (design and management of flows of goods, services, knowledge and information between firms); Management Accounting (design, use and effects of financial and non-financial measures in strategy development and implementation); Innovation Management (deployment of management tools and mechanisms to connect technology, organization and markets); Operations Management (relation between production, organization and strategy in manufacturing and service industries); Managerial Economics (decision modelling around pricing, costing, production planning and forecasting).

Our vision is to be bold in ideas and strong in practice! It is the ambition of the Department to be orientated towards questions that attempt to debate the boundaries of the areas. This allows cross-disciplinary exchange of research ideas and helps fostering a strong intellectual environment. The Department understands management in relation to managerial tools and instruments that help to frame and make business issues visible and making them amenable to intervention, development and control.

The Department wishes to develop research and teaching in close connection with practice. Candidates who are able to add to the general fields of Management Accounting, Managerial Economics, Operations Management, Innovation Management and Supply Chain Management and work among two or more of the areas will have an advantage. Competency and skill from empirical research by any method is an advantage as is the ability to bridge to other of the Department’s research areas.

The Department of Operations Management supplies teaching and supervision to undergraduate, graduate, masters, executive and PhD programmes in economics and business administration. Currently, the Department hosts four broad research programs:

  • Servitization
  • Circular Economy
  • Pricing and Management Accounting
  • Maritime Business Studies

We encourage candidates to apply by submitting interdisciplinary PhD proposals that link to, or ideally combine, different research areas of the Department. Strong competencies and skills in empirical research (either qualitative or quantitative) are an advantage.

The Department invites applications for a vacant PhD scholarship. We are looking for applicants who will be interested in and qualified to undertake research in the following research area:

  • Part of a research project titled “The Supply Chain of the 21st Century: Towards Ethical, Social and Circular Business Models”, which is co-financed by CBS and the Nordakademie Foundation, Germany. The proposal should be about circular business models.

For more information about the Department, its research areas and projects please visit: https://www.cbs.dk/en/research/departments-and-centres/department-of-operations-management

Applications will be assessed based on the quality of the proposed project, as well as the skills of the candidate. Only project proposals that clearly fall in the areas of the Department will be considered.

The three-year PhD programme at CBS allows you to conduct research under the supervision of CBS professors, supported by research training courses. It is required that the applicant shows an interest in joining the Department’s research environment, see: http://www.cbs.dk/en/research/departments-and-centres/department-of-operations-management. The programme is highly international, and you can participate in international research conferences and spend time abroad as a visiting PhD student. See the CBS homepage for more information about the PhD programme: http://uk.cbs.dk/phd

CBS’s 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 our PhD graduates go on to employment outside universities and public research institutions.

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