The School of Management is offering two PhD studentships, commencing January/February 2016. Studentships will comprise a stipend at RCUK level, currently £14,057 annually, and a fee waiver at home/EU level.
We will consider applications from students wishing to research any topic where supervisory expertise is available in the School. Individual faculty members have widely varied research interests and candidates should explore these thoroughly before making an application. Candidates may consult a faculty listing at http://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/management/aboutus/people/academic/. We would encourage those interested to make informal contact with potential supervisors prior to making a formal application.
The School of Management at the University of St Andrews is one of the U.K.'s leading business and management schools. We are proud of our distinctive identity as a smaller school focused on research and teaching of the highest quality. The Ph.D. programme in the School of Management is closely tied to the School's five thematic groups: Creative and Cultural Industries; Ethics, Sustainability and Accountability; Financial Institutions and Markets; Knowledge and Practice; Organisations and Society. Ph.D. proposals will be expected to complement the research agendas of one of these groups, a fit which should be evident in the application. Full details of the groups and associated faculty can be accessed via http://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/management/research/.
How to apply
Applicants should have a Masters' level qualification (or equivalent research experience) in a subject relevant to their proposed topic, and an undergraduate qualification at or equivalent to an upper second or above.
