PhD student / Research Associate (Doktorand) in Strategic Management/Organizational Design (m/w)
The Department of Business Administration at the University of Vienna invites applications for the position of a
PhD student / research associate
In Strategic Management/Organizational Design
Why join us
The Department of Business Administration at the University of Vienna is one of the most internationally visible
management departments in Europe - constantly ranked among the top two in management research among all universities
in the German-speaking world, and belongs to the finest institutions in its field internationally.
The Strategic Management Subject Area within the Department commenced its operations in August 2012. In steady state, our
team consists of approximately 10 people from four different nationalities. Jointly, we investigate questions pertaining
to strategic decision-making of organizations and related performance implications. We are particularly interested in
early-stage (organizational design) decisions relevant to firms operating in (technologically) innovative environments.
We are agnostic to methods and pursue formally analytical, simulation-based, ethnographic, large-scale empirical as well
as experimental techniques. Our publications have appeared in the finest management outlets, such as the Academy of
Management Review, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, Production and Operations Management, Research
Policy, and the Strategic Management Journal, to mention but a few. Our research is funded by several agencies, and we
regularly host conferences and seminars featuring colleagues from all over the globe.
We are currently looking for a dedicated PhD student to follow on from a recently graduated team member. Find more information
about the Strategic Management area and its members here:
Who we are looking for
Applicant should have completed their Master/Diploma degrees (or be very near completion) by the time of their application. We are looking for graduates from:
Renowned management programs: e.g. M.Sc. in Business (Dipl.- Kfm., Kffr.)
Adjacent disciplines such as economics, psychology, engineering or computer sciences: e.g. M.Sc. in economics (Dipl.-Vw.), M.Sc.
in industrial engineering (Dipl.-Wi.-Ing.), M.Sc. in information management (Dipl.-Wi.-Inf.), M.Sc. in psychology (Dipl.-Psych.)
Independent of their background, all applicants should be excited about pursuing a career in academic research in the social sciences.
A particular interest for the field of strategy and organizational design is a definite plus, while specific prior training is not a
prerequisite. We are looking forward to receiving your application if you are:
a top graduate (belong to the best 10% of their graduating classes)
have a strong quantitative background
have an interest in acquiring methodological skills in areas such as formal (mathematical) modelling and/or (quantitative)
empirical testing (conducting experimental research and/or large-scale field studies).
As an international group of researchers seeking to publish in leading journals, we rely on candidates being fluent in English (written and
spoken). Relevant study experience in a (native) English speaking environment is therefore a strong plus. Prior teaching experience is an
advantage. Knowledge of German is not required.
What we offer
Successful candidates will join the Strategy Area as research and teaching associates
on a 30 hours/week contract
(gross salary amounting to approx. 26,500 €/annum),
Our program is modelled after leading US business schools' doctoral programs and comprises intensive course work at the postgraduate
level, research presentations, as well as drafting the actual dissertational thesis. While the program’s primary goal is to prepare
candidates for a career in international academe, it also increases the candidates’ attractiveness to employers in the private sector
(consulting, industry). For further information about the PhD program please visit
Outside the core doctoral program, the Strategy Area will actively nurture research by its members, aimed at making a contribution
at the highest international levels and preparing them to succeed in the international academic job market. Students from our group
have received offers for junior faculty positions from leading European universities.
In addition, candidates assist and participate in administrative tasks and teaching activities (teaching due to extent regulations
of wage agreement) of the strategy area at all levels.
No final decision will be taken before 31 May 2017. Afterwards we may have a rolling dead-line if we are still looking for the right candidate.
your letter of motivation (no specific research proposal)
your transcripts of prior university course work (including grades)
your GPA and (if available GRE or GMAT) scores
All applications should be submitted electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org referencing position number 7513.
Since the University of Vienna specifically invites applications by women in order to increase their number in high-level positions,
women will receive preferential consideration among equally qualified applicants.
