Stipends for PhD studies at the Department of Business Administration

1–2 PhD positions in Business Administration, Entrepreneurship

We announce 1–2 four-year full-time PhD student positions in entrepreneurship for a project about the “entrepreneurship industry”: activities taken to promote entrepreneurship in organizations or society at large. In this project, we take a particular interest in social norms within this industry, or how norms and ideals influence how entrepreneurship is promoted and executed, as well as outcomes. Questions we care about include for example, how do norms and ideals shape entrepreneurial activities? What are the positive and negative consequences for individuals, organizations and society?

We welcome candidates with an interest in understanding how norms, cultures and ideals shape decisions and actions and who are curious about the phenomena of entrepreneurship in modern society.

The PhD students will receive a scholarship for the first year and be employed at the department the sunsequent three years.

More information about the positions and the application process can be found here.

Application deadline: 17 September
