Functiebeschrijving

The project (within the NWO-VIDI) aims to analyze the global knowledge base for innovation in clean technology (cleantech), such as renewable energy technologies and clean transport technologies. More specifically, we will analyse how regions and countries become good at innovation in energy and transport, and what the role of their existing knowledge base and existing industry is in this process.

The two PhD students will both focus on separate aspects of global cleantech knowledge, one PhD student will focus on the emergence of new cleantech knowledge, such as for example, regions that diversify into fuel cell research. The second PhD student will investigate subsequent technological learning, what are the conditions under which technological learning and cost reductions are realized? The projects will contribute to theory building in cleantech innovation, through extensive empirical analysis of cleantech patents and other technological information. The PhD students will use quantitative techniques (statistics, regression models, simulation models and network analysis) for the empirical analysis.  

The candidates will become part of the Innovation Studies group of the Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development. The supervisors will be dr. Floortje Alkemade, prof. Koen Frenken, and prof. Marko Hekkert.

Functie-eisen

We seek highly motivated candidates with a MSc degree in innovation studies, economic geography, economics, management studies, energy science or a related discipline. We are looking for candidates that:

  • have knowledge of theories of innovation and technological change, and industrial dynamics; 
  • have affinity with evolutionary theories in economics; 
  • have a strong background in quantitative methodologies (e.g. econometrics, statistics) and willingness to work with large datasets;
  • have experience in programming using econometric packages (e.g. Stata, R); 
  • are proficient in English; 
  • have excellent scientific writing and planning skills.

Both PhD students can spend the vast majority of their time on the research project; only 10% of their time will be spent on teaching, and supervision of (under)graduate research projects. The PhD students are encouraged to present their work at international conferences; travel funds are available.

Arbeidsvoorwaarden

The successful candidate will be offered a full-time PhD position, initially for one year. Upon good performance, the contract will be extended for three more years. Employment conditions are based on the Collective Labour Agreement of the Dutch Universities.

Based on the experience and qualifications of the candidate, the gross monthly salary is between € 2.083,- and € 2.664,- (PhD salary scale) on a fulltime basis. The salary is supplemented by a holiday allowance of 8% per year and an end-of-year bonus of 8.3%. 

We offer a pension scheme, collective insurance schemes and flexible employment conditions (multiple choice model). Facilities for sports and child care are available on our campus, which is only 15 minutes away from the historical city center of Utrecht.
