PhD Studentship Dynamic Systemic Strategic Risk Modelling. An Analysis of Historical Explorations to Inform Risk Management Thinking

Strathclyde Business School

Enquiries: Dr Andrew Perchard, Department of Strategy & Organisation, [email protected]; Applications to: Hilde Quigley,  [email protected])

Deadline: 1 September 2013

Funding: Both UK/EU fees covered

Research: Applications are welcomed from a PhD candidate to join a lively and innovative hub of researchers working in the fields of risk management, strategic decision-making, and business history, across the Departments of Strategy and Organisation, and Management Science, at Strathclyde Business School. The project builds upon previous research undertaken within the Department of Management Science on behalf of NASA, to explore strategic decision-making and risk assessment of large historical exploration expeditions. Drawing on choice theory and ‘bounded rationality’, this project adopts an explicitly historical perspective to examine questions over risk evaluation. This project will give the student a great opportunity to work with an interdisciplinary team within a vibrant intellectual culture.

Requirements: We would welcome candidates from a range of disciplines but an historical background would be advantageous.
