Project details

The postdoc position is a 2-year, half-time contract (18,5 hours per week) with research and teaching responsibilities at CBS. The position is connected to a strategic cooperation with Leuphana University Lüneburg in Germany on the humanities in entrepreneurship and management education, with a focus on culturally and aesthetically informed perspectives on organization and entrepreneurship.

The cooperation entails the European Haniel Program on Entrepreneurship and the Humanities, supported by the German Haniel Foundation. With CBS and Leuphana University Lüneburg as central nodes, the European Haniel Program currently cooperates with University of St.Gallen (Switzerland), Ca’ Foscari University Venice (Italy) and University Paris-Dauphine (France).

The postdoc position includes the coordination of the European Haniel Program.

The envisioned starting date of the position is August 1, 2021.

While also continuing to pursue his or her own research interests, the postdoc’s contribution to the joint project with Leuphana may cover:

  • Supporting the development of networks of business schools invested in new forms of teaching and learning;
  • expanding the research network on humanities and business education through research workshops, joint publications and joint PhD courses.

The position will be affiliated with the Management and Entrepreneurship group. What unites faculty is an overriding concern for the organization of the human within its multiple environments: work, nature, economy, civil association, the state, and corporation. MPP also participates in numerous interdisciplinary cross-CBS activities. In line with this concern, the postdoc should demonstrate a capacity to bridge across several of these environments and place the human at the heart of the project.
