Bangor Business School, Bangor University, supported by the ESRC Doctoral Training Partnership for Wales (Wales DTP), invites applications for funded PhD study which is part of a ‘collaborative studentship’, involving liaison with a non-academic organisation, First Hydro Power Station. The study will commence in October 2023 in Management and Business, exploring “Reconstructing knowledge management: A radical modernisation of maintenance and capital expenditure risk modelling for a North Wales Hydro Power Station”. The successful candidate will work with First Hydro at different stages of the research project, significantly contributing toward redefining and redesigning innovative risk modelling. The research also fits within the Welsh Assembly Government’s call to action to tackle the climate emergency.
