PhD scholarships at the Department of Operations Management
The Department of Operations Management at Copenhagen Business School (CBS) invites applications for vacant PhD scholarships within the areas of the Department. Starting dates are expected to be in the autumn 2019.
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 of 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 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:
- 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.
