How are advanced technologies shaping management processes and organizational practices?

Advanced technologies ranging from digitalization to additive manufacturing and beyond are radically shaping global managerial landscapes. The IPM section engages in research that develops but also critically explores the potential and impact of such technologies on organizations and people within. Ongoing research projects include algorithmic management, the study of hybrid work, the development of cognitive technologies, and deep science networks in discovery-driven research. The findings are published in leading international research journals and also shared with local communities and industry.

We look for a multi-method researcher who is committed to high-quality research with impact.

We offer an international research environment, connections within the department and within the university, and a collegial, team oriented research environment in an elite technical university based in Greater Copenhagen.
