Fully funded PhD Studentship

Imperial College Business School - Department of Innovation & Entrepreneurship at Imperial

ERC research opportunity for PhD student starting in 2017

Imperial College Business School has an opportunity available for a PhD student joining the fully-funded five-year Doctoral programme in September 2017 to join the Business School’s Department of Innovation & Entrepreneurship. You will join a network of internationally admired faculty at Imperial College London, a top 10 global university.

Applications are now open to work with Dr Anne ter Wal on a research programme funded by the European Research Council (ERC). The research programme is titled “Networking for innovation: how entrepreneurs’ network behaviour helps clusters to innovate.”

Imperial College Business School’s Doctoral programme is a full-time, five-year programme. In the first year you will complete a Master’s in Research (MRes) programme with highly relevant and structured training. During that year you will take compulsory modules in research methodology and subject-specific theory, which will provide you with a theoretical grounding and thorough research training for a solid foundation for your academic career. You will also undertake an individual research project, meant as a stepping stone for your PhD research project. For the remaining four years you will design and conduct your PhD research project, as part of the wider N4I_CLUSTER research programme. Further information about this opportunity is available here.

As a PhD student you will play a leading role in the collection and analysis of data. Depending on the sub-projects that you may choose to work on, these may include interviews, multi-wave surveys, online networking monitoring tools, social science experiments and use of data from Twitter. Students with an interest in conducting social science experiments are particularly encouraged to apply.

Fully funded studentships available
The Doctoral programme at the Business School is fully funded, including a full tuition fee waiver (Home/EU or Overseas fees) plus a living stipend for up to five years through the Business School Graduate Teaching Assistant Scholarship.
