PhD scholarship on Gender and Diversity in Accounting and Finance in Denmark 2022

In the academic year 2022/23, Copenhagen Business School welcomes proposals for a PhD scholarship on Gender and Diversity in Accounting and Finance.

This role will look at how and why there is a scarcity of female talent pursuing professions in accounting and finance, and if this deficit is due to gender, personality qualities, or other personal characteristics.

PhD applications that examine the causes, effects, and opportunities of gender and diversity across various vocations are highly welcome (e.g. corporate accounting, auditing, asset management, private equity, investment banking and corporate finance).

This post is in the Accounting Department. Professor Thomas Riise Johansen and Associate Professor Jeppe Christoffersen are leading this study, which is focused on the consequences of restricted gender (and other types of) diversity in accounting and finance career paths.

It, therefore, addresses current issues and intends to contribute to public, professional, and corporate conversations on these topics.

As a result, the PhD must be revitalized by interacting with businesses and professionals as part of the research and dissemination process.

The PhD student will work closely with their supervisors and benefit from the department of accounting and CBS’s worldwide research environment.

Fieldwork, data collecting, and registration data are all eligible for financial assistance for this project. Professor Thomas Riise Johansen ([email protected]) and Associate Professor Jeppe Christoffersen ([email protected]) are anticipated to oversee the student.

Before submitting an application, candidates are highly urged to contact Thomas or Jeppe for casual talks and information about the role.
