Sheffield University Management School is currently advertising PhD scholarships. Four of these scholarships will be for projects attached to the Centre for Decent Work. The project titles are as follows:
1. Trade Unions and Migrant Workers in the UK and Southern Europe.
2. The Development, Content and Implementation of National Labour Policies.
3. Labour Organising in the Logistics Sector: A Comparative Study of Warehouse Work in South Yorkshire and California’s Inland Empire.
4. You Can’t Unionise Robots’: Exploring the Impact of Technology on the Nature of Work in the Logistics Sector in the US and UK.
Each project will involve an international collaboration with either the European Trade Union Institute (Project 1), the International Labour Organisation (Project 2) or the University of California Riverside’s Inland Empire Labor and Community Research Center (IELCRC) and California State University – Long Beach (Projects 3 and 4). This is an excellent opportunity for PhD students to gain valuable international experience.
