PhD in organizing projects

Copenhagen Business School - CBS

Ph.d. & forskning
Storkøbenhavn

The Department of Organization at Copenhagen Business School invites applications for a vacant PhD scholarship within the field of project studies. Project studies refers to the study of projects in organizations and societies. Projects are vital for today’s organizations and society. They are the fabric of social activity. For example, responses to global challenges like climate change are organized around projects. Yet, despite their omnipresence in society, they unescapably navigate uncertainties, complexities and ambiguity, which makes projects hard to manage. We need more studies on the dynamics of projects to enhance our theoretical and practical understanding of them. The PhD can therefore cover the development of an organizational context for projects or the understanding of the dynamics within a project, for example, how project actors behave, how do they respond to problems and how do they learn, how do they make decisions, how they innovate. We suggest the development of a process-based longitudinal study on a project or project-based organization, that is, organizations that have projects as the main source of turnover. We encourage applications from research areas falling broadly within the themes of sociology of projects, learning in projects, and sense making and decisions in projects.

Department of Organization (IOA) pursues a problem-oriented, business in society approach to understanding and intervening 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 organisation 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. 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 http://uk.cbs.dk/ioa

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)
