Postdoc in Networks and diversity research

Copenhagen Business School invites applications for a vacant three-year postdoc in Networks and diversity research at the Department of Management, Politics and Philosophy (MPP). 

The postdoc position is a 3-year, full-time contract with research and limited teaching responsibilities, connected to the Carlsberg Foundation research project “Equality, Diversity and Inclusion as a Moralized Market” led by Associate Professor Florence Villesèche. See more information about the project at . The project team will consist of a PhD, a PostDoc, and a student assistant for a duration of 3 years. The envisioned starting date of the position is September 1, 2021.

While also continuing to pursue their own research interests, the postdoc’s contribution to the project may cover: 

  • Network analyses of the EDI market
  • Event-based network modelling applied to the EDI market
  • Networks and networking of actors in the EDI market
  • Network theory of moralized markets

Core research areas of the Department of Management, Politics and Philosophy are organized into different research groups: Politics; Business History: Philosophy; Management & Entrepreneurship; and Law. Faculty within these groups have research backgrounds in all areas of law, political science, sociology, philosophy, history, anthropology, literature, theology, aesthetics, design and innovation, tourism and leisure management, cultural economics, leadership and strategy, pedagogic study, and other areas.

The position will be affiliated with the Management and Entrepreneurship group. What unites faculty is an overriding concern for the organization of the human within its multiple environments: work, nature, economy, civil association, the state, and corporation. MPP also participates in numerous interdisciplinary cross-CBS activities. In line with this concern, the postdoc should demonstrate a capacity to bridge across several of these environments and place the human at the heart of the project.

To fulfill the requirements of the position, the applicant chosen is expected to be physically present on a regular basis and actively participate in the teaching and research activities of the Department.
