OFFER DESCRIPTION

The Department of Finance at the Copenhagen Business School invites applications for a PhD scholarship in statistics.

The Department of Finance carries out research and teaching in a wide range of financial topics but also includes the Center of Statistics as an integrated part of the department. The Center for Statistics is responsible for research and teaching in probability theory and statistics and the application of these subjects within business economics.

The scholarship covers a three-year period, and the student accepted for the position will be associated with the Center of Statistics. Relevant research topics include all topics and applications of statistics within business economics including, for example, models relevant for analyzing big data, benchmarking production companies, and credit scoring.

PhD students are required to teach. The teaching responsibilities of the Department include undergraduate and graduate teaching in statistics.

About the program
The three-year PhD program at CBS allows students to conduct research under the supervision of CBS professors, supported by research training courses. The program is highly international, and students are expected to participate in international research conferences and to spend time abroad as a visiting PhD student. Students are also expected to actively participate in the Department’s research activities, such as seminars and conferences organized by the Department. See http://uk.cbs.dk/phd for more information about the PhD program and http://uk.cbs.dk/finance for information about the Department of Finance.

PhD students from the Department of Finance have become researchers at leading universities and business schools, such as University of Chicago (Booth), Bocconi University, BI Oslo, UVA Darden School of Business, WU Vienna University, Cass Business School, London Business School and the EPFL in Lausanne.

Copenhagen Business School has a broad commitment to the excellence, distinctiveness and relevance of its teaching and research programmes. Candidates who wish to join us should demonstrate enthusiasm for working in an organisation of this type.

The starting date is December 1, 2020, but can negotiated.
For further information please contact: Merve Ates, tel.: +45 3815 3058, e-mail mat.fi@cbs.dk. Information about the department can be found at www.cbs.dk/finance.

Appointment 
Appointment and salary will be in accordance with the Ministry of Finance’s agreement with the Central Academic Organisation.

General information
A PhD scholarship runs for a period of 3 years, and includes teaching obligations equivalent of ½ year’s work (840 work hours). The scholarships are fully salaried positions, according to the national Danish collective agreement. The scholarship includes the tuition fees, office space, travel grants plus a salary, currently starting from app. DKK 30,450.00 (app. 4,075.00 €) per month up to DKK 37,100.00 (app. 4,965.00 €) per month including pension contributions, depending on seniority.

The salary level and appointment is determined by the Ministry of Finance’s collective agreement with the Central Academic Organisation.

The PhD student will be enrolled at the PhD School in Economics and Management. Please see the CBS website for more information about the PhD program, http://www.cbs.dk/en/research/phd-programmes.

Requirements
To be considered, the candidate should have a basic training at the Master’s level (similar to the 3 + 2 Bologna process). The applicant must have successfully completed the Master’s degree before commencing PhD at CBS, but we also welcome applications from individuals close to completion of the Master’s degree. Generally, a completed MBA education does not fulfil this requirement. The applicants must be fluent in English.

The successful applicant must have shown academic excellence with a record of top grades from previously completed programs. Priority will be given to candidates who have both a strong quantitative background and training in statistics.

Application procedure
The application (see link below) must include a five-page project description. This research proposal should contain a presentation of an original research question, a description of the initial theoretical framework and methodology, a presentation of the suggested empirical material as well as a work-plan.

In addition to the research proposal, the application must include copies of a Master’s degree certificate or other certificates of a corresponding level, brief curriculum vitae, a list of papers and publications if relevant, and one copy of a selected written work (e.g. Master’s thesis).

Recruitment procedure
The Recruitment Committee expects to conduct a shortlisting of applicants to be assessed by the Assessment Committee. All applicants will be notified of their status in the recruitment process shortly after the application deadline.

Applicants selected for assessment will be notified about the composition of the Assessment Committee and later in the process about the result of the assessment.

Once the recruitment process is completed each applicant will be notified of the outcome of their application.
Please find guidelines and further information on scholarships and the Doctoral Programme at http://uk.cbs.dk/phd.
