Fully Funded PhD - Productivity, Policy and Place - the impact of employee relations on the growth and productivity of small and micro-businesses


Project Description

The Centre for Regional Economic and Enterprise Development (CREED), based at Sheffield University Management School, is seeking applications for a fully funded PhD from exceptional UK/EU/International students with an outstanding academic record (distinction/high merit or equivalent), as well as a proven record in research training.

Productivity is one of the most important concepts in social science research. Productivity reflects how resources and factors are utilized in the production of goods and services, including all of the interactions with, and roles played by, the market, technological, institutional and cultural settings. National productivity is the observable outcome of all economic relationships operating between people, firms, organisations and institutions. This project will explore the impact of employee relations on the growth and productivity of small and micro-businesses.

The supervisory team may include two of the following academics: Dr Chay Brooks, Professor Philip McCann, Professor Tim Vorley, and Dr Robert Wapshott.

Process:
Applicants should submit a 1000 word research proposal which directly addresses the theme and/or specific topic to which they are applying. The proposal should contain a brief background to the topic, which demonstrates knowledge of existing work in the field, and potential contributions to knowledge. It should also explain the proposed research methods and include a plan of the research, and a timeline.

Closing date for applications is 17.00 (UK time) on Friday 14 December 2018. Interviews will be in early January 2019.
