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
