About the project

Southampton Business School has an ambitious quality-driven strategy of growth and our research is recognised throughout the global academic community. 

We are seeking talented and motivated individuals with an interest in all areas of accounting.

Priority accounting research areas include:

  • Corporate Governance 
  • Sustainability Practices and Reporting

We welcome applications that will develop an interdisciplinary approach to addressing real-world challenges. For example, enhancing organisational sustainability might require a combination of leadership, finance, governance, accounting, and strategy. 

You are invited to propose transformative research that challenges conventional disciplinary boundaries to help solve real-world problems. This will contribute to addressing the evolving challenges of business. 

You will have a creative and a collaborative spirit and create positive outcomes by bridging practice and intersectionality of disciplines. This will help prepare leaders and members of organisations for the future of work, business and entrepreneurship.

Potential supervisors

You are also advised to contact prospective supervisors with aligned research interests in advance.
