Search for a PhD supervisor
We warmly welcome enquiries from appropriately qualified applicants who are keen to register for doctoral research (PhD). Direct applications are welcomed in any of the following areas.
I look forward to supervising professionals with a passion to investigate further intricate aspects of entrepreneurship. Main topics include entrepreneurial teams, habitual and portfolio entrepreneurship, entrepreneurship in developing economies, and entrepreneurial families in business.
I am interested in supervising doctoral students undertaking qualitative research in the following areas: the ‘greening’ of organisations and managerial responses to environmental sustainability issues; the processes and practices of delivering strategic change; and organisational knowledge and learning. I am particularly interested in research that takes practice-based and discourse approaches to these topic areas, such as that of ‘strategy-as practice’, and also in recent developments in institutional theory that highlight the ‘institutional work’ of organisational actors.
Applications for PhD are welcome from candidates interested in strategic management and who have a strong academic background. I am interested in supervising doctoral students that share my interest in the micro-level aspects of competitive strategy, in particular in regards to the development, replication and change of knowledge, routines and capabilities in organizations. I am interested in research both in small and medium sized businesses as well as large MNEs.
Available for supervising students and particularly welcome strong applicants who share my research interests in entrepreneurship (especially those related to its social aspects such as social networks, social capital and social innovation) and those who wish to look at entrepreneurship in the context in which it is created and formed.
