Copenhagen Business School invites applications for a Post-Doctoral Fellow in International Political Economy and the Green Transition at the Department of Organization. The position is for 36 months and the expected start date is 1 March 2024.
This position is partly supported by the NAVIGATOR project, ´The EU Navigating Multilateral Cooperation´, a Horizon Europe project. The project is coordinated at the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs and the CBS lead is Professor MSO Eleni Tsingou, who is responsible for the workpackage on Finance and Tax.
The project aims to address questions about how the EU should navigate the increasingly complex institutional spaces of global governance to advance a rules-based international order and what factors should be emphasized when considering which institutions to strengthen, which to reform, and which to by-pass when revitalizing multilateralism. NAVIGATOR explore institutional variations on six policy issues – climate change, digitalisation, finance/tax, health, migration, and security – to identify what institutional mixes enable the EU to have an optimal impact on a given policy issue. The post-doctoral fellow is expected to produce original research work at the intersection of the finance/tax and climate change workpackages.
The Post-Doctoral Fellow has both research and teaching obligations (66% research, 34% teaching).
The Department of Organization (IOA) pursues a problem-oriented, business in society approach to understanding and intervening in organizations and organizational life. Our research is focused upon organizing processes and their outcomes, and driven by an interest in organization and management as a practical, situated, contested and changing matter. Our approach is interdisciplinary and combines social-scientific traditions such as organization theory, sociology, ethnography, political economy, and social psychology. Methodologically, our research is predominantly qualitative and often involves case study and fieldwork methodology.
Teaching responsibilities at the Department comprise undergraduate and graduate teaching as well as teaching in post-experience and doctoral education. Examples include:
- Organization Theory
- Organizational Analysis
- International Political Economy
- Comparative Political Economy
- Research Design and Methodologies
