Post-Doctorate Researcher. The Center for Digital Strategies (CDS) at the Tuck School of Business is seeking a qualified candidate for a post doctorate (postdoc) research position. The position is designed to foster research related to technology and innovation. We are seeking a candidate who has recently earned their Ph.D. (or expecting their degree by June of 2014) in either management, strategy, organizational behavior or a closely related field such as sociology, economics, or psychology. Funded by the CDS, the primary goal for the person who fills this position is to be an active and productive research collaborator on projects that contribute to the knowledge output of the CDS. As such, the postdoc will be expected to work on projects of mutual interest with the CDS faculty director, and affiliated CDS researchers. Preference will be given to candidates that conduct work in the areas of technological change, organizational learning, and process views of innovation. Outside of the research responsibilities, the candidate will have no other responsibilities other than to participate in Center planning and activities, discussions with external executives, and to be an active participant in the intellectual discourse of the CDS and the Strategy and Management Group at Tuck. The position has no teaching responsibilities. The position is for two years (one-year appointment, renewable for a second year on the agreement of both parties).
The CDS, a part of the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth, is dedicated to advancing the theory and practice of management in the digital, networked economy. Founded in 2001, the CDS generates insights into the way firms use digital technology to create value, how changes in digital technology impact strategy making, and fosters thought leadership by forging a learning community of scholars and executives. Faculty director, Alva Taylor, leads the CDS. Affiliated CDS researchers include Ron Adner, Constance Helfat, Steve Kahl, Andrew King, Adam Kleinbaum, and Margaret Peteraf. The ideal candidate will be a dynamic researcher with a clear passion for technology and strategic issues.
