This PhD scholarship is funded as an important part of an Australian Research Council (ARC) funded project Sustainability transformation pathways for small to medium enterprises conducted by Associate Professor Wendy Stubbs and Associate Professor Megan Farrelly in the School of Social Sciences.The project will examine how small to medium enterprises' (SMEs) capacity for experimentation and innovation enables their adoption of sustainable business models to drive sustainable transformations. The research outcomes are critical for understanding and supporting innovative strategies for organising and governing SMEs' pathways to a sustainable society. The knowledge developed will support business sustainability transformations in Australia and internationally. The successful applicant will join the research team and contribute to the wider project but will also undertake their own distinct PhD project. The details of the PhD project are open to negotiation, but it may involve a comparative sectoral analysis of SMEs adopting sustainable business models and practices.
