Marketing Group

MK-1: Service Recovery using Lean Six Sigma: an action research. Service recovery and handling of customer complaints are important aspects of services marketing management. Customers evaluate companies’ response to his/her complaint in the state of dissatisfaction within the business transaction and engagement. Lean Six Sigma methodology contributes to services improvement by capturing the Voice of the Customer right first time and evaluating their requirement priorities using tools such as Kano Model. Thus, this study attempts to assess service recovery and complaint handling processes using Lean Six Sigma methodology and appropriate tools within service industries. The researchers will be choosing two local service organizations for data collection and action research will be used as the prime research methodology for this study. (Potential supervisor: Dr Babak Taheri and Professor Jiju Antony)

MK-2: Knowledge workers, including academics are expected to build a professional digital presence to disseminate research, promote their employer brand and engage with multiple internal and external stakeholders. The processes and impacts of such digital labour, including whether situated practices are supported or constrained by institutional policy, is poorly understood. Drawing on theoretical perspectives such as performativity and governmentality, this PhD will examine the formalisation of the digital self of knowledge workers. The research will take a qualitative approach e.g, netnography and interviews to understand digital labour including accountability, professional identity and risks in this new workspace. (Potential supervisor: Dr Kathryn Waite and Professor Kate Sang)

MK-3: Digital marketing and performance measurement in hospitality and tourism sector. The role of digital marketing in organisations’ marketing management strategy has been expanding in the tourism and hospitality sector. Meanwhile, customers are gradually engaging with tourism and hospitality services through offline and online channels, managers have recognized the need to track theses engagements, but also to find ways for measuring their firm performance as well as improving their customer relationship capabilities and creativity.

PhD Research Scholarship, Heriot-Watt University, UK

Heriot-Watt University, UKMarine photosynthesis supports almost all ocean life and is a vital component of the global carbon cycle. Uptake of carbon for photosynthesis is also an effective method of ‘locking up’ atmospheric carbon over long timescales, and may form a vital part of our long-term strategy towards reducing atmospheric CO2 levels and mitigating climate change. Our current understanding of marine photosynthesis is mostly focused on shallow-water systems such as seagrass meadows, coral reefs or surface plankton blooms, but some marine photosynthesisers are able to survive in the deeper waters known as the mesophotic zone.

The world’s deepest living marine photosynthesisers are the globally distributed red coralline algae. Incredibly, these algae have been found at depths of over 300 m, but the mechanisms behind their ability to photosynthesise at such low light levels is currently unknown. This project will seek to understand these mechanisms in the context of defining the role of coralline algae in the marine carbon cycle. The student will utilise a multi-disciplinary approach that will combine field and laboratory experimentation, developing skills in organic carbon biogeochemistry, carbonate chemistry, ultra-fast fluorescence and scanning electron microscropy.

The student will be based at the Lyell Centre for Earth and Marine Science and Technology, which opened in March 2016. This £21 million collaborative venture provides world-class facilities for marine and geoscience research, including a state-of-the-art research aquarium and biogeochemistry laboratory. Fieldwork opportunities in Honduras, Brazil or Greece will be possible, providing field validation to laboratory-based work. Wider engagement with non-academic partners in the UK and internationally will set the project within the wider policy context.

Project: Financial Supply Chain Risk Modelling
Supervisors: Professor Arnab Bhattacharjee and Dr Abhijeet Ghadge

Supply chains are exposed to risks and disruptions, including financial shocks. It is important to explore the network structures that offer the best capacity to withstand such shocks. Risk profile modelling and financial impact evaluation should help supply chain and logistics managers to manage such risks. Because it is complex and challenging to assess these interactions, there is a research agenda in the study of network linkages between firms and their partners. This PhD project aims to explore the financial impact of disruptions to supply chains and logistics networks using economics and statistics theories and methods. This inter-disciplinary project will be conducted within two research centres in Heriot-Watt University – the Spatial Economics & Econometrics Centre (SEEC) and the Logistics Research Centre (LRC). The research will aim to develop a new methodology and framework for financial supply chain risk modelling.

Deadline
All applications must be submitted by Monday 22nd August 2016.
