Junior researcher (doctoral double degree student) in entrepreneurship

The LUT School of Business and Management and Jönköping International Business School are looking for a junior researcher (doctoral double degree student) in entrepreneurship.

More specifically, we are looking for a curious mind who is aiming for an academic career and is passionate about how entrepreneurship can contribute towards sustainable development, especially in rural areas.

The junior researcher will investigate the topic of “Rural entrepreneurship and sustainable transformation”. While the specific research questions of the thesis remain to be further specified in collaboration of the doctoral student and supervisors, the research questions could include some of the following: (1) What are the regional level trends, drivers, and sustainability impacts of rural entrepreneurship? (2) How are established and startup rural enterprises integrating sustainability in their operations? (3) What are the firm- and individual level drivers/obstacles for sustainable transformation in rural enterprises? (4) What are the linkages between the rural enterprises’ sustainability and performance?
