Ph.D. research position at Jacobs University Bremen


Ph.D. research position (m/f), (part-time 65%), Job ID JU-17-58 

The position is part of the research project “Public-Private Collaboration in China´s Innovative Rise: Effects and Mechanisms“, which is jointly organized by the Chair of Chinese Society and Business at Jacobs University Bremen (Prof. Tobias ten Brink) and the Chair of Institutional and Innovation Economics, especially Japan/East Asia at Goethe University Frankfurt (Prof. Cornelia Storz). In order to understand the sources of China’s recent rise in innovation capacities, the research project focuses on public-private collaboration between actors from industry, university and (local) government. It aims at unpacking main mechanisms that drive public-private networking. The research departs from theoretical insights into the potentially beneficial effects of collaboration in the industrial policy and the innovation systems literature.

The research will be funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). The position in Bremen will start at the earliest possible date for two years (with a potential third year, subject to funding approval).

The application has to be submitted by October 6, 2017.
