Hull University Business School and its Centre for System Studies is delighted to announce a fully-funded PhD scholarship awarded by the UK Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl). The project will consider systemic risk associated with outsourcing strategies for major complex MoD projects. Such projects are characterised by inherent complexity arising from challenges of scale, technological and contextual uncertainty, temporal and geo-spatial span, and economic and political constraints and require management of a wide range of risks. Contractual relationships will be at the core, and the study will map systemic risk and thematic approaches to risk management, expose current limitations of contract design and identify alternative interface systems between demand and supply actors based on relationship management.
The scholarship will include a stipend for 3 years according to the Research Council level (£14,057 for the 2015/16 session), expenses and will pay Home/EU PhD fees (international by negotiation). The start date will be by negotiation but could be almost immediate.
