Project Description

Research Cluster : International Enterprise: Business & Society

This newly formed research cluster is particularly concerned with exploring changing enterprise and organisational forms across divergent institutional settings.

Project Description:

This studentship is located within the research cluster focussed upon ‘International Enterprise, Business and Society’. Emergence is the term used by Padget and Powell (2012) to capture the evolution and emergence of new organisational forms and markets. Organisations and markets are connected by people through networking, a process that enables transformation, permutations and combinations of resources, knowledge and factors through which new organisational forms and ways of organising generate (Padget and Powell, 2012: 2-3). This studentship will be dedicated to exploring different organisational forms, the behaviour of institutional actors, and the transformation of organisation through enterprising activities, in different spaces and in different times.

This project will explore the relationship between emergence and hybrid organisational forms in different cultural and institutional settings (e.g. Russia, China, Africa).

Application 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.

Proposed Supervision Team:

The supervisory team may include two of the following academics: Dr David Littlewood, Dr Sergej Ljubownikov, Dr Carole Coupler, Dr Junzhe Ji, Dr Martina McGuinness, Professor Sumon Bhaumik, Dr Tom Buckley, Dr Vasilios Theoharakis and Dr Alex Wright.
