Are you interested in undertaking a PhD to understand how executives make decisions under uncertainty and ambiguity?

We are looking for an enthusiastic PhD student who will work with a dedicated supervision team to undertake original research in the field of strategic management. The research seeks to explore the key factors that lead to unique differences in executives' decision making.

It is anticipated that the student will refine the focus of the study with their supervisors within this general area.
