Postdoctoral fellow in transformative innovation with focus on digitalisation for sustainable transitions

For this position, we are looking for a postdoctoral fellow who can develop, apply and evaluate digital tools (such as artificial intelligence, internet of things) with the aim of speeding up the transition of business to sustainable development. Areas of application relate to sustainable and circular business arrangements based on both a producer and consumer perspective and include close collaboration with participating actors.

Postdoctoral position in Industrial Engineering & Management with a specialization in Project Management & Project Governance

The research investigates how risks of SMR projects could be mitigated and gives preliminary answers to the question “are SMRs viable solutions in decarbonising energy production?” Conventional projects for nuclear power plants have showed difficulties to meet deadlines and time schedules as well as keeping the budget. The idea behind SMRs is to reduce time, uncertainty and complexity due to the shift from “constructed on site” to the mindset of “installed on site”. But the question remains if this is possible as it requires new financing models, new roles and responsibilities of project actors, new digital tools etc.

Reframing sustainability

The aim of this course is to provide critical perspectives on sustainable transitions. While sustainability has become a driving concept in industrial processes, public policies, political
discourse, academic research and teaching, societal commitments, its understanding and in particular the ways towards it have never been so diverse and even divergent.
In this course the intent is not to choose one among these perspectives and approaches but rather exploring the multiplicity of voices in the name of “sustainable transitions”. At the same
time the aim is to offer critical tools to navigate that complexity and to reflect upon the different researchers’ roles.
On the one hand, sustainability is a driving factor for new markets, business models, and new partnerships towards sustainable value creation. On the other hand, sustainability implies to
look at situated re-organizational processes at the boundaries between technoscientific knowledge, materiality, political choices and ethical postures. In other words, sustainability will be framed as practices taking place in specific contexts and involving a plurality of socioand material actors. The course will provide theoretical suggestions and will work through case studies to explore sustainable transition in practice and its implications in terms of organizing, management and politics.

Försvarshögskolan: Postdoktor till projekt Fokus

Försvarshögskolan erbjuder en spännande arbetsplats där civilt och militärt möts med nya utmaningar
under stor frihet. Skolan växer fort med många nya forskningspartners och finansiärer samt nya
utbildningar. Vi har också viktiga traditioner på skolan från det militära arvet, t.ex. väldigt bra friskvård

Fokus är ett samverkansprojekt finansierat av KK-stiftelsen, och bygger på tre delprojekt som knyts
samman i ett synergiprojekt. Att det är ett samverkansprojekt innebär att, förutom Försvarshögskolan, så
deltar också representanter från industri och myndigheter. Du kommer ha huvuddelen av din forskning
inom delprojektet som studerar hur försörjningskedjor kan optimeras mot förmågan ställa om mellan
fred, kris och krig. Målsättningen är att förstå hur industrin samtidigt kan stärka sin konkurrenskraft och
bidra till en ökad försvarsförmåga.
