Our mission as Oxford Brookes Business School (OBBS) is to ‘Inspire minds with insight and ambition’. Our doctoral students sit at the heart of this mission. The School is now accepting applications from outstanding candidates for four doctoral studentships across the research centres of: Business, Society and Global Challenges (BSGC), Oxford Regional Innovation Enterprise Lab (ORIEL), International Centre for Coaching and Mentoring Studies (ICCMS), and the Centre for Diversity Policy Research and Practice (CDPRP).
Each full-time successful candidate will be offered a studentship to start in either September 2023 or January 2024. A bursary of £17,680 per annum will be paid by the school, for three years subject to satisfactory progress. There is a possibility for the studentships to be awarded to applicants to our new distance learning PhD programme.
As a doctoral student you can transform your future through undertaking rigorous and creative research training with recognised methodological and subject experts to become an independent researcher. You will be a valued member of our supportive, vibrant, diverse and inclusive research community and thriving research centres. You will have an opportunity to develop life-long networks, produce journal articles with supervisors and engage in some teaching, if desired.
The Oxford Regions, Innovation and Enterprise Lab (ORIEL) specialises in enterprise, entrepreneurship and regional economic development research and engagement, focussing on and addressing the needs of public, private and third-sector stakeholders. By linking intellectually-led questions and practice-based solutions, this thematic area brings together academic insight and its application to policy and practice.
Members of ORIEL are engaged in local, national and international research on a range of issues, such as regional economic development, entrepreneurial ecosystems, entrepreneurship, enterprise and innovation, social enterprise, start-ups, SME growth and performance, and internationalisation. Our researchers publish in top-tier journals, such as British Journal of Management, Entrepreneurship and Regional Development, Journal of Small Business Management, Journal of World Business, Regional Studies, and Technovation.
These are highly competitive applications, applicants are expected to hold a good undergraduate degree and a Master’s degree at merit level or above, in a relevant area. Applicants should demonstrate strong research capabilities and be fluent in spoken and written English. This bursary will be awarded against the quality of the research proposal and the ability to complete within the three year funded period.
