STUDENT RESEARCH ASSISTANT TO CENTER FOR CORPORATE GOVERNANCE (CBS)
Do you want to become a part of an international research environment focusing on corporate governance? We are hiring a highly skilled student research assistant with sound methodological understanding and strong work ethic to work with data collection on Nordic firms. You will join a team of leading Nordic researchers and research assistants led by data manager Davide Cannito and project manager Melisa Gacic.
Center for Corporate Governance (CCG) is considered one of the leading research centers in Europe within Corporate Governance. The center promotes a research environment where knowledge about corporate governance is developed and exchanged both globally and locally. You will be working at an exciting and international workplace where professionalism is paramount.
The Nordic Corporate Governance Database (NCGD) is a long-term commitment by CCG and our Nordic partners to develop and maintain a leading Nordic database in the area of quantitative corporate governance. The database aims to provide researchers better access to high quality data that facilitates submission to recognized international research journals. The database will help scholars to shed light on the reasons behind the success of the Nordic financial and corporate model. It will function as a natural platform for research cooperation, and pave the way for cross-country studies that target previously unexplored areas of high relevance for both national and international audiences. The project is funded by NASDAQ.
We work hard and focused at CCG, but we also do offer good humor, a laid-back atmosphere and a fun and inspiring working environment.
The work will primarily be quantitative work and you will contribute to a team of international researchers, so proficiency in English is required, as well as in at least one other Nordic language. You have a sound interest in corporate governance and understanding of how to read annual reports. You must be able to work independently, systematic, and thorough. You must be an enrolled student at a university.
We will evaluate the applicants based on:
- Interest and ability to work with corporate governance and data collection
- Previous experience with data collection and annual reports
- Interest in academic work and research
- Ability to read/talk one or several Nordic languages
Working hours will be approximately 15-20 hours a week. You can work two full days a week or distribute your hours over more days. We provide flexibility – especially around exams.
Salary is according to current agreement for student assistants.
