Choosing your supervisor

Members of the HRM-OB Group continue to supervise PhD students across our five main themes of research excellence - workplace innovation, diversity, health service management, social inclusion, and employee selection. Prospective research students are encouraged to approach staff members directly, if they have queries or questions regarding the remit of their proposed research and likely fit with an HRM-OB Group staff member as a potential supervisor.

Our researchers create knowledge and advance understanding, and equip versatile graduates with the confidence to apply what they have learnt for the benefit of society.
