Postgraduate Opportunities

We are developing a thriving research culture and want to be as inclusive as possible.

All PhD and DBA researchers closely affiliated with CICR are identified on the Members Page.

We welcome any Aston Business School (ABS) doctoral researchers conducting change and renewal-related research to join CICR. Given  much of our work is inter-disciplinary, we extend this invitation to include doctoral researchers in other schools of the university. MSc dissertations focusing on issues covered by CICR can be conducted within the centre. Developing applied research skills is one component of facilitating growth and profitability, because students will enhance their capability to critically understand key issues and solve underlying problems and issues. We are also exploring how undergraduates might get involved with our work.

We also welcome collaborations with doctoral and post-doctoral researchers outside of Aston conducting research related to CICR.  This includes the UK and international researchers.

Given CICR is a research centre rather than an academic department, the entry mechanism for potential new doctoral students is via the central ABS Research Degrees Programme. In the first instance, discuss your research interests with a faculty member listed on the CICR Members page.  We look forward to hearing from you.
