Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Mün­chen - TUM School of Man­age­ment - Chair of Stra­tegic and Inter­na­tional Man­age­ment

The Chair of Stra­tegic and Inter­na­tional Man­age­ment, headed by Univ.-Prof. Dr. Thomas Hutz­schen­reu­ter, invites applic­a­tions as

Doc­toral Research Asso­ci­ate (m/f/d)

Our research addresses strategies, trans­form­a­tions, and the suc­cess of firms. We strive for giv­ing suc­cess-crit­ical impulses for busi­ness prac­tice as well fur­ther devel­op­ing strategy con­cepts and the­or­ies.

Our research focuses on three areas: Strategy&tech­no­logy, Strategy&global con­texts, and the The­ory of the firm. Motiv­ated by prac­tical prob­lems of cor­por­ate man­age­ment, we seek for impact­ful solu­tion in all our research areas (see We do not only cooper­ate with renowned schol­ars at home and abroad but also with well-known cor­por­ate part­ners. Research res­ults are presen­ted at inter­na­tional con­fer­ences as well as trans­ferred to busi­ness prac­tice.

Pre­vi­ous doc­toral can­did­ates of Pro­fessor Hutz­schen­reu­ter are today exec­ut­ives in mul­tina­tional enter­prises, inter­na­tional strategy con­sultan­cies, private equity com­pan­ies and work for inter­na­tional busi­ness schools.

Working field:

Pro­fessor Hutz­schen­reu­ter intens­ively sup­ports you on your research pro­ject. You will work along a struc­tured pro­ject plan with clear mile­stones for each semester. As part of the doc­toral stud­ies at TUM Gradu­ate Cen­ter you will learn the meth­ods of aca­demic research and have access to oppor­tun­it­ies of con­tent-spe­cific doc­toral courses.


  • Suc­cess­fully fin­ished stud­ies with a focus on busi­ness and man­age­ment (e.g., busi­ness admin­is­tra­tion, indus­trial engin­eer­ing, busi­ness inform­at­ics or eco­nom­ics), inform­at­ics or nat­ural sci­ences/engin­eer­ing with an out­stand­ing degree (resp. gradu­ation shortly)
  • Intern­ships or other pro­fes­sional exper­i­ences
  • Pro­found know­ledge in stra­tegic man­age­ment, in fin­ance and account­ing, and pro­gram­ming skills are an advant­age
  • Excel­lent ana­lyt­ical and lan­guage skills, team spirit, pas­sion for sci­entific work
  • Prac­tical exper­i­ences in a rel­ev­ant field are an advant­age

What we offer:

Our doc­toral study pro­cess (see has a clear struc­ture that ensures doc­toral can­did­ates can gradu­ate after no more than three years. Can­did­ates may pur­sue an internal doc­tor­ate (employed by TUM, salary accord­ing to the level TV-L E13), or an external doc­tor­ate, suf­fi­cient pres­ence at TUM accord­ing to TUM guidelines hav­ing to be guar­an­teed. As an equal oppor­tun­ity and affirm­at­ive action employer, TUM expli­citly encour­ages applic­a­tions from women as well as from all oth­ers who would bring addi­tional diversity dimen­sions to the uni­versity’s research and teach­ing strategies. Pref­er­ence will be given to dis­abled can­did­ates with essen­tially the same qual­i­fic­a­tions.

How to apply:

We are look­ing for­ward to receiv­ing your com­plete applic­a­tion (cover let­ter, CV, A-levels cer­ti­fic­ate or equi­val­ent, cer­ti­fic­ates/tran­scripts of records of Bach­elor’s and Mas­ter’s degree, work and intern­ship ref­er­ence let­ters). Please hand in all doc­u­ments in a single PDF-file to First round suc­cess­ful applic­ants will be asked to hand in a short exposé (1-3 pages) in which you link your research interest to one of the chair’s research pro­jects (see or to a self-selec­ted topic and out­line ideas which you would like to do research on. If you have any ques­tions, please feel free to con­tact Maria Vuille­min (Tel. +49 (0)89 289 28132).
