The School of Business and Management currently has three studentships available for entry onto the PhD Programme in January 2011.
Research within the School clusters around six broad themes (i) innovation, networks and knowledge; (ii) communications, discourse and narratives; (iii) equality and diversity; (iv) education; (v) globalisation and (vi) business history. Faculty conduct research across one or more of these themes. We also host the Centre for Research in Equality and Diversity, the Globalisation Research Centre, the Business History Research Centre and co-host the Centre for Global Security and Development with the School of Geography and the School of Politics.
We are looking to attract applications from candidates with an interest in one of three broad areas – innovation, ethics and communications. However we welcome applications which may be inter-disciplinary and cross-cut any of our research themes, for example the ethics, fairness and diversity of contemporary policy and employment practices, the globalisation of innovation, pedagogical issues associated with the use of digital communication, transparency and accountability in the context of globalisation, fairtrade governance structures and impacts on local development etc.
One of the Studentships will entail working as a paid editorial assistant one day a week with the journal ephemera: theory and politics in organization, the other two will be scholarships without any specific tasks attached. All will be subject to the terms of conditions of Queen Mary funded College studentships in the Humanities and Social Sciences see http://www.qmul.ac.uk/hss/funding/bursaries/index.html
The Studentships are open to home and overseas students and include payment of tuition fees and an annual stipend of £15,590.
The school strongly advises prospective PhD students to contact a member of the School before they apply to the programme. This will ensure that your research proposal is complementary to the expertise and strengths of the School. Details about the School’s academic staff and their research interests can be found below:
