Do you want to become a part of an international research environment focusing on governance, risk and compliance? We are hiring a highly skilled student researcher with sound methodological understanding and strong work ethic to work with data and statistics. You will be working primarily with Danish register data on a research project on Governance, Risk Management and Compliance (GRC) with Professor MSO Tom Kirchmaier.

About us:

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.

Governance, Risk Management and Compliance (GRC) research is a particularly exciting research field now, as the field is at an interesting crossroad. A need for a much better societal understanding means that firms and other organizations are much more likely to share data with researchers. We utilize datasets from various data sources, such as Danish register data, open-source data and data shared with us from key institutions. You will get hands-on experience with working with research designs, econometric methods and data management. The job will enhance your skills in these areas and you will learn from working closely together with both internal and external researchers. The research portfolio is diverse and includes projects on anti-money laundering, criminal networks and workers’ risk exposure and safety.

About you:

The work will primarily be quantitative work and you will contribute to a team of international researchers, so proficiency in English is required. You have a sound methodological understanding from quantitative course work and previous work experience. You might study polit, HA(mat) or cand.merc. You must be able to work independently, systematic, and thorough.

We will evaluate the applicants based on:

  • Interest and ability to work with statistical and analytical tools such as Stata and R
  • Previous experience with large data sets, e.g. Danish register data
  • Interest in academic work and/or the financial sector

You should have completed at least 2 years of studies and Master students are preferred. Working hours will be approximately 15 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. Please send your application, CV and transcript to Anne Sophie Schytt Lassen at assl.ccg@cbs.dk no later than 29 of July 2019. For further information, please also contact Anne Sophie Schytt Lassen.
