About the scholarship

QUT Centre for Future Enterprise (CFE) helps organisations and leaders design and test new solutions for an enterprise’s future. There are key attributes that future enterprises require to thrive in an accelerated transforming environment. These include, but are not limited to: innovation, robustness, ambition, curiosity, decisiveness, purpose, inclusion, and trust.

CFE is seeking to expand its strength and depth of research in the design and management of trust and is awarding four (4) related PhD scholarships in the research area of trust to join the research team. The successful candidates will join a vibrant team with complementary expertise and strong academic and professional networks and have ideally a background in a discipline such as marketing, consumer studies, marketing, organisational/management science or information systems.

The successful candidates will benefit from immediate real-world onboarding, access to evidence and industry connections through CFE’s partnership with global technology company Cisco, the Brisbane Trust Alliance and the Cisco Chair in Trusted Retail. Each initiative provides complementary capabilities and invitation to participate in trust-related ARC Discovery projects, ongoing real-world projects and industry engagement.

PhD students in the Centre for Future Enterprise maintain an active community including peer-to-peer interactions, access to global academic network, a regular colloquium and various research capability-building events.
