The Department of Human Resource Management has a lively community of research students studying both full-time and part-time. Our PhD programme lies at the heart of our research community, which includes many internationally recognised scholars in the area of HRM and employment studies, and with whom students will be working closely. Our programme aims to provide an academic apprenticeship for those wishing to pursue a career in academia or provide greater depth in an area of practical relevance for those wishing to study part-time. The Business School's ESRC recognised research training programme, taught during the first year of study, provides the foundation for all research students; thereafter students continue to work closely with their supervisor in developing their research topic.
The information here should help you decide whether our staff specilise in your area of interest and if we have the expertise to supervise you. It will also help you develop a research proposal which will define the area you wish to pursue and which is the first step in the application process. We look forward to welcoming you to Strathclyde University. A link is also available to further information regarding Faculty funding opportunities.
