Doctoral research

If you're interested in joining a dynamic community of talented researchers from around the world to explore research questions that matter, we would like to hear from you.

Our research topics

Within the Management Science and Operations group we are especially keen to receive PhD research proposals in the following areas:

  • improving management by designing and implementing analytic approaches that help tackle routine, strategic or policy problems;
  • developing analytical models that can often be represented mathematically or visually and built using specialist software;
  • contributing analytical insights and solutions to a range of problems within domains such as health, transport, logistics and supply chain management, process improvement, group decision making and emergency management.

The group has great supervisory experience and is keen to supervise high-quality research students in members’ specialist research fields.

Please feel free to browse our group members to identify a potential supervisor(s), develop your research proposal, share this with the identified supervisor(s) and confirm they are willing to be named in support of your application. You are encouraged to ask for feedback from them to develop your research proposal. Then you should be ready to formally apply.
