The recently established Centre for Higher Education Governance Ghent (CHEGG) at University of Ghent in Belgium has three new openings: two for PhD students and one for a postdoc position.
2 PhD positions
The two PhD projects should focus on an element of the broader research project Higher Education Governance. This is a so-called Odysseus project, funded by the Flemish Research Council for five years. The project is – broadly speaking – interested in how (multi-actor, multi-level) governance arrangements evolve in higher education, how this impacts on the higher education fabric in different higher education systems and how higher education institutions respond to and adapt to the emerging governance challenges.
