Postdoc Award at CBS in Denmark 2021

The Department of Organization at Copenhagen Business School invites applications for a Postdoc Award at CBS in Societal Impact of Organization theory in the 2021/22 academic year.

CBS was created in 1917 by the Danish Society for the Advancement of Business Education and Research (FUHU); however, it was in 1920 that accounting became the premier full study program at Copenhagen Business School. Presently, CBS has around 20,000 students and 2,000 staffs, and provides a broad range of undergraduate and graduate programs within business, usually with a cross-disciplinary and global focus.

This Postdoc Award at CBS is part of the joint research project, titled “Turning theory into action: Undesirable consequences of implementing organization and management theory” (particulars obtainable upon request), which is financed by the Velux Foundation’s core group program and headed by Professor Renate Meyer and Professor Eva Boxenbaum. The position concentrates on how organizational actors construe organization theory when they execute it in practice.

The applicant will examine translation procedures and also the impact of these procedures on the studied organizations and society more widely. The applicant should be familiar with organizational institutional theory (e.g., institutional translation) and qualitative research, and interested in reviewing the societal effect of organizational research.

The role involves broad empirical fieldwork in Denmark, a readiness to live in the Copenhagen area, and also regular physical presence at CBS for the contract duration. The candidate will work closely with the project team (i.e., the project leaders, one other post-doc, and one PhD student) in an unified team structure, hosted within the Department of Organization at Copenhagen Business School.
