Therefore, we invite applications for an oikos PhD Fellowship at the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland. The Fellowship will be awarded for a three-year period starting in February 2011 and ending in January 2014. oikos Fellows will have the opportunity to build upon an excellent research platform at the University of St. Gallen, a leading European management school, and take advantage of the global oikos network.
Each fellowship carries a grant of annually CHF 36,000 (USD 35,000) and an additional fund of CHF 10,800 (USD 10,200) for research, travel and participation in scholarly conferences.
