    Position: PhD Position in Sustainable Business

    Institution: University of Leeds's School of Earth and Environment

    Location: Leeds, UK

    The Sustainability Research Institute at University of Leeds’s School of Earth and Environment is currently accepting applications for the Ph.D. track in Sustainable Business. 

    The Sustainable Business track is hosted by the Business & Organisations for Sustainable Societies Research Group (BOSS) and responds to the growing interest in critically evaluating the role of businesses and organisations and how they can incorporate sustainability in their systems, including their activities and throughout their supply chains. Research projects may look at the role of companies in influencing pro-environmental behaviour in the home; spaces of engagement, resource governance and the extractive industries; sustainable entrepreneurship and community innovation; environmental ethics in business; circular economy; pro-environmental behaviour in organisations.

    Prospective students with backgrounds in sociology, political science, business, environmental science, or other relevant areas are encouraged to apply. Selected students work closely with faculty members to develop deep knowledge of the field of business sustainability and develop theories and approaches which enable businesses and organisations to tackle the challenges of sustainable development in a coherent, systematic, holistic and robust way. Faculty include William Young, Jamie Van Alstine, Sally Russell, Alice Owen, Anne Tallontire, Pablo Munoz, Pasi Heikkurinen. Their research has regularly appeared in top journals such as Business Strategy and the Environment, Journal of Business Venturing, Journal of Environmental Management, California Management Review, Energy Policy, Journal of Cleaner Production, Journal of Business Ethics, Organization & Environment, Journal of Business Research, Journal of Organizational Behavior, Sustainable Development and Technological Forecasting and Social Change. 

    SRI also hosts the Economics and Policy for Sustainability, Environment and Development, and Energy and Climate Change Mitigation research groups; providing a rich and diverse research environment for selected students.

    The minimum entry requirement is an Upper Second Class British Bachelor degree (or equivalent), however, many of our students enter doctoral study with a Masters degree which has often provided some research training. Funding is available for outstanding candidates. If candidates would like to be considered for one of the University’s scholarships competitions, they need to submit a separate application for the scholarship and visit http://scholarships.leeds.ac.uk for further information.
