The successful candidate will be enrolled on the M.Litt programme of the School of Business under the supervision of Dr 

Nicola Mountford. The successful candidate will join our research team and write their M.Litt dissertation on topics related to doctoral education and innovation. 

Project Topic 

This project sits within work package 1 of the CHAMELEONS research programme. The focus of this work package is to identify the PhD and Post-Doctoral graduate skills required to gain employment in industry, in the clinical environment, in non-governmental organisations, charities etc. A survey will be undertaken across the consortium to identify courses/modules which are specifically designed to develop PhD/Post-doctoral skills and which could be made available to the students gap participating in CHAMELEONS. A purposeful sample of industry employers (e.g. technical solution developers, think tanks, healthcare service providers and planners) across Europe will be interviewed in order to determine their requirements in terms of current and future PhD and post-doctoral graduates. Finally an analysis will examine the results to determine where the gaps in education lie and where the design and development of new educational resources is required.

Closing Date: 22nd June 2020 

Commencement Date: To be confirmed. Students are expected to commence their Masters studies, at the latest by the start of the 2020-2021 academic year, in mid-September 2020.
