The Centre for International Business History (CIBH) is offering a fully-funded studentship for a Ph.D. project on the evolution of Britain’s fast-moving consumer goods industries over the twentieth century. Applications are encouraged from students interested in exploring the changing sources of competitive advantage in any area of fast-moving consumer goods, principally using archival research.
Studentships cover both fees and maintenance costs and are available to all applicants, with no restrictions on nationality. Ideally we would like potential applicants to make initial contact with us by 31st March 2018. The deadline for applications is 15 June 2018.
