The focus of this PhD research project will be on the broad theme of Identifying High Performing Faculty in Academia. Exploration of this theme might include, for example, focus on:
While research explored multiple aspects of hiring exceptionally high performing employees (also called stars), scholars paid less attention to the question of how the stars are identified and perceived by different stakeholders within organisations and professions. Yet the question “who is a high performer (at individual and organisational level)?” is not as straightforward as it might seem. For example, we have seen the proliferation of rankings, which use different measurement approaches to identify academic excellence. There is an ongoing debate about the qualities of research that count, with priorities varying across different stakeholders in academic ecosystem. This project seeks to combine quantitative and qualitative approaches to provide insights into the perception of academic high performance in complex multidisciplinary organisations. The particular focus of this project is on the interplay between perceptions of excellence at different levels of analysis, such as individual, organisational, professional, and societal, amongst others.
Applicants will be expected to submit a proposal that is rooted in the theme outlined above.
