2 PhD Scholarships at the Integrative Innovation Unit, Department of Marketing and Management

Job description:

Two PhD Scholarships within the Integrative Innovation Management unit are vacant from 1 June 2009 or soon after for a period of three years. Integrative Innovation Management is a cross-disciplinary research group that bridges two faculties: Social Sciences and Engineering at the University of Southern Denmark. These positions are anchored at the Department of Marketing & Management in Odense and require enrolment in the PhD programme at the Faculty of Social Sciences.

Applications are invited from candidates with a Master's Degree.

The vision for Integrative Innovation Management is to integrate the partial approaches to innovation management by developing new methods and producing scientific insights into the innovation process by applying a theory-driven approach to support empirical results. The approach is founded on engineering perspectives combined with marketing and management aspects.

To exemplify, the group is developing research projects within the field of sustainability and innovation and open innovation. One proposal could be to develop a framework for supporting integrative and methodical product development in the renewable energy sector. Another proposal could be to study open innovation practices, in particular emphasising value co-creation among interrelated actors utilising network and learning theories. However, these suggestions are only indicative of possible PhD proposals.

We therefore invite project proposals within the broad field of integrative innovation management. Especially, we encourage project descriptions from the perspectives of marketing and management as well as integration with engineering aspects on integrative innovation management. The research unit welcomes applicants with background within engineering, business economics (especially marketing and management) and economics.

As part of the PhD programme, an individual education programme within the field of business administration has to be completed. You will be expected to complete a six-month stay at a research institution abroad and, over the period of the programme, to acquire experience of teaching or other types of presentation. You are also expected to participate in the various activities within the research units and – apart from your stay abroad – to be routinely present at the unit.

Further information can be obtained from the director of the research group Integrative Innovation Management: Professor Mette Præst Knudsen, tel. +45 6550 7455 or

Information about the PhD programme at the Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Southern Denmark, can be found at the homepage

The application should include a detailed description of the PhD project. Besides a general problem formulation it should discuss relevant theory, research design and methods, and include a work schedule. The project description must not exceed 8 pages.

Programme Description

The research fellowship programme at AKU-ISMC commences in September and offers a unique opportunity to pursue research within an intellectually stimulating and supportive environment. Fellows play an active role in the intellectual life of the Institute, participating in a wide range of seminars, workshops, and conferences. They also enjoy the opportunity of interacting with distinguished faculty at the Institute and from other academic institutions in the United Kingdom. The duration of each fellowship is one year. During this time, candidates explore and shed new light on a specific dimension of one of the Institute’s two major research themes: social and cultural change in Muslim contexts or knowledge construction in the fields related to understanding cultures. These two themes are deliberately open ended and broad in their scope to enable a diverse range of research topics. One example of a research topic that has been derived from the first theme as an area of specific interest at the Institute is the idea of cities as environments for social and cultural change.

The present cohort of fellows (2008/2009) is working on various aspects of social change by examining the dynamics of networks and institutions in Muslim contexts. During the course of this academic year, the Institute will facilitate scholarly dialogue among the research fellows and senior academics who have contributed to the discourse related to civil society and social change within Muslim contexts.

The fellows are expected to produce a research paper on the theme of their fellowship topic, to a standard that is publishable by a quality academic journal, and that can be published in the Institute’s academic publications series. During the course of their fellowship they are required to participate in the educational programmes of the Institute by delivering lectures and seminars as required. Fellows will also contribute to the Institute’s various seminar and discussion series by giving lectures and presenting papers to faculty, students and staff.

Research fellows are also expected to contribute the Muslim Civilisations Abstracts ( project by writing abstracts and editing papers.


Candidates should have
- A PhD in the Humanities or Social Sciences;
- A high degree of interest and competence in one of the above research areas;
- A high level of proficiency in communication skills, written and verbal;
- An International English Language Testing System (ELTS) score of at least 6.5 or equivalent is essential.


The gross fellowship stipend is GBP20,000. In addition to the stipend, Fellows from outside the UK will receive a reimbursement of travel expenses for a one-way restricted economy class ticket from their home base to London and single accommodation or a contribution of GBP800 per month towards a rental accommodation. Other benefits and facilities include: a research grant of up to GBP500, office space, access to AKU-ISMC’s library and the libraries of neighbouring academic institutions, and access to computer facilities.

Doctoral Scholarship at Victoria University


Doctoral Scholarship at Victoria University : The Discourse of
Negotiation in Professional Workplace Contexts

The role of effective workplace communication skills for achieving
transactional objectives can be considered fundamental to workplace
success for most organisations.

While important in all aspects of workplace interaction, these skills
are crucial in the negotiation of complex and potentially conflictual
agreements which potentially carry far-reaching consequences (Norisada
2007, Prego-Vazquez 2007, Pavlenko and Blackledge 2004, Locher 2004).
The negotiation process is a communicative endeavour with discourse as
the tool by which participants achieve (or fail to achieve) their
intended outcomes. A detailed analysis of discourse in social
interaction can thus throw valuable light on the range of strategies
which may contribute to resolving disputes and disagreements in
problematic and challenging negotiations.

The research objective is to identify the discursive characteristics of
effective negotiators and negotiations in potentially conflictual
situations in professional workplaces. The specific workplace(s) to be
the focus of the research, including industry/sector, will be negotiated
with potential applicants.

The deadline for applications is *15 May, 2009*. Application forms are
available from
