Job description

Research in Strategic Organization Design is focused on the academic fields of strategy and organization science. Our agenda addresses important and interesting unsolved research questions relating to organizational design and adaptation, including the role of AI and new emergent technologies. We seek candidates with a strong passion for research and a desire to work on groundbreaking ideas, and we expect them to publish their research in the leading scholarly journals. We encourage applications from the fields of strategy and organization science, but also from neighboring fields such as behavioral economics, organizational economics, social psychology, decision science, and computer science.

As part of the PhD programme, an individual education programme within the field of marketing and management has to be completed. The successful candidates 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. They will also be expected to participate in the various activities within the department and - apart from the stay abroad - to be present on a daily basis.

Research within the Department is anchored in an understanding of the cooperation between markets, organizations and individuals. It encompasses a variety of areas from evolutionary models of organization to new exotic forms of consumption. It is the ambition of the Department to be in the international frontline in these areas and to seek synergy between research, teaching and knowledge dissemination. Research at the Department is organized in five research units. See the Department website for more details.

Further information can be obtained from Professor wsr Oliver Baumann (
