PhD scholarships in applied microeconomics with a focus on topics such as firm organization, corporate governance/finance, leadership and ownermanaged firms, Department of Economics, University of Copenhagen

The Department of Economics at the University of Copenhagen offers a number of PhD scholarships that will be linked to the new Niels Bohr Professorship Center Directed by Niels Bohr Professor Morten Bennedsen. The successful candidate(s) will be employed from 1 May 2018, or at a later date according to agreement with the Department.  
Deadline for applications: March 19, 2018
The center 
The purpose of the center is to do research within the broad area of ownermanaged firms. The center is conducting a number of research projects around the leadership, the organization and the corporate financial structure of ownermanaged firms. The successful candidate(s) will join a strong group of international researchers based at University of Copenhagen, Columbia Univeristy, Cornell University, Hong Kong Technology and Science, National University of Singapore, INSEAD and Bocconi University. As part of the PhD program you will get rich opportunities to spend time abroad for instance at some of the universities mentioned above. Through this PhD position, you will be able to join existing and future projects within the research group based on Danish register data and theory, and you will also have opportunities in developing your own research projects and educate yourself as a first class researcher. 
The ideal candidate has a strong interest in applied microeconomics. This may include topics such as organizational economics, leadership, corporate governance, firm theory and ownermanaged and family owned businesses. In addition, prior experience with data management, data programming and data analysis is an advantage (but not a prerequisite for the position).  
The PhD scholarships will be awarded either as 5+3 or 4+4 scholarships depending on the situation of the applicant. The PhD projects will allow students to learn and apply a broad spectrum of complementary scientific methods to shed new light on a number of fundamental questions within firm organization and firm governance. Most of the projects within the research center will be theoretical based, but use novel surveys and register data. 
In order to be eligible for a scholarship in the 5+3 PhD study programme the applicant must have completed a two year MSc degree programme, or have earned 120 ECTS credits at an equivalent academic level before starting his or her employment. Applicants should check the study programmes for more detailed descriptions of the entry requirements. PhD students are paid a salary in accordance with the agreement between the Ministry of Finance and the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations (AC). The PhD student has a work obligation of up to 840 hours over the 3 year period of time without additional pay. The work obligation can include for instance teaching. 
Students who have completed a BSc plus 60 ECTS of an MSc degree programme would enrol as PhD students simultaneously with their enrolment in the MSc degree programme. Applicants should check the study programmes for more detailed descriptions of the entry requirements. Until an MSc degree is obtained, the grant is paid partly in the form of up to 48 state education grant portions (in Danish: SU-klip). More specifically the PhD student will be paid two grant portions per month plus salary for work (teaching, presentations etc.) which totals a workload of at least 280 hours. Payment and conditions of employment are carried out in accordance with the agreement between the Ministry of Finance and the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations (AC). Upon completion of the MSc degree the student is transferred to the salary-earning part of the PhD studies.
