Copenhagen Business School invites applications for 1 postdoc position in the field of innovation governance and sustainability transitions.
The postdoc positions have a duration of three years (including one year of teaching responsibility).

The project is managed by Professor Susana Borrás, at the Department of Organization, at Copenhagen Business School, Denmark.

Taking the starting point in innovation governance and sustainable transitions studies, the project addresses questions related to organizational capacity and agency in the governance processes of transformative innovation.

The postdoc will be actively engaged in the collection, management and analysis of a significant amount of data. The research will also involve active interaction and communication with stakeholders in the case studies. The postdoc will be expected to take responsibility for a specific number of empirical cases, and will be expected to translate high quality research data into publications in scholarly journals in collaboration with other team members.
The postdoc will be subject to a formal annual performance review. The position will includes teaching responsibilities as part of the Department's teaching portfolio and the successful candidate will be offered an opportunity to qualify for CBS’ teacher certification.
