Two four-year full-time employments. Limit of tenure: four years. The PhD students will receive a scholarship for the first year and be employed at the department the last three years. First day of employment: 1st September, 2019

We are looking for two PhD students in entrepreneurship with an interest in the role of ownership, and the relation between ownership and financing, in entrepreneurship. In line with this, the ownership situation can be assumed to be related to financial opportunities as well as financial decisions. The positions connect to ongoing research at the department focusing on the role of ownership and management in financing new and small firms by exploring the owners’/managers’ interest in the different sources of finance. In addition, the research aims at investigating owners’/managers’ decision process. For the positions interesting research relates to for example more recently established financial opportunities such as crowdfunding and Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) as well as the more traditional BA and VC. The thesis project will be conducted under the auspices of the Sten K. Johnson Centre for Entrepreneurship.
