Full Text of JOE Listing:
The Laboratory for Innovation Science at Harvard University (LISH) is soliciting applications for one or more postdoctoral fellowships aimed towards quantitative and experimental social (economics, management, psychology and sociology). LISH is a Harvard-wide interdisciplinary research lab that is focused on developing a science of innovation through the application of quantitative and field experimental methods on innovation problems faced by our partners.
The Postdoctoral Fellow will work under the supervision of LISH Directors and affiliated faculty, and will have the opportunity to collaborate with LISH staff, postdocs, and doctoral students. The Fellow will assist LISH faculty on researching digital operating models, cases of successful and unsuccessful implementation of digital transformation, and the sociological impacts of such transformations. They will help create a comprehensive picture of digital business and operating model implementation, develop metrics for evaluation of practices, and develop and administer a survey. The project also entails creating a conceptual “benchmark” platform and developing a detailed understanding of management best practices.
The position has no teaching or administrative duties.
LISH is looking for candidates with diverse backgrounds and/or new perspectives.
