By: Paula Jarzabkowski

Applicants with excellent research potential are invited to apply for two fully-funded, full-time, 4-year Doctoral Studentships to commence in October 2014, working under the lead supervision of Professor Paula Jarzabkowski. These studentships will cover tuition fees and provide an annual bursary.

 Cass Business School, City University London is one of Europe’s leading providers of business and management education at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels and is fast developing into the intellectual hub of the City of London. The School is renowned worldwide for its extensive and high quality research and The Financial Times has ranked our PhD offering in the top 40 in the world every year since 2007.

 Proposals are invited on the topic of practice theory approaches to strategy and organization. While the research context and topic is open, candidates taking an explicitly strategy-as-practice approach, and those with an interest in studying finance industries and/or financial risk are particularly welcome.

 One studentship is specifically open for those with a particular interest in the area of video ethnography. The successful applicant would take part in an existing video-ethnographic programme of research examining trading of risk in the reinsurance industry. Applicants for this studentship will join a team and an ongoing programme of research into the reinsurance industry at Cass.

We invite applications from students who have (or can show evidence that they reasonably expect to have) a Masters degree from a leading university with top grades in business, sociology, anthropology or a relevant discipline for the topic areas. Only applicants interested in pursuing an academic career will be considered.

How to apply: Applicants should contact Professor Paula Jarzabkowski directly to discuss their interest via email All applicants will also need to fill out the PhD application form, which may be accessed on the Cass Business School website:
