The E ntrepreneurship & Innovation section of the Amsterdam Business School (ABS) is looking for a PhD candidate for a research project about the impact of university-based incubation activities on the creation, growth, and performance of new startups and spinoffs as well their founders.
The main aim of this project is to study early investment in biotech entrepreneurial ventures, focusing on the signals of quality the entrepreneur and the venture can send and especially on the effects of how the entrepreneur or venture are categorized, in terms of industry, technology, goal of the product etc. - or categorize themselves.
The research will combine insights from management science, especially entrepreneurship and innovation, with those from categorisation theory, both in management science and in sociology, and apply a broad range of quantitative techniques, from network analysis to machine learning (esp. to analyse texts and images).
This PhD project is part of the recently approved ORGANOVIR project , which is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network within the EU Horizon 2020 program.
The overall project is a collaboration between researchers from the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Switzerland, Poland and Denmark. The lead of the overall project is with the Academic Medical Centre of the University of Amsterdam, most of these researchers are connected to (bio)medical departments who study innovative techniques and applications related to artificial organs; this subproject is the only one in management science.
The candidate is also expected to participate in some teaching activities related to innovation management and the research project.
The supervisors of this project will be Prof. Nachoem Wijnberg and Dr Balazs Szatmari.
