Flore Bridoux is a Professor of Stakeholder Management at the Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University. She holds a PhD from the Catholic University of Louvain, Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium. She worked as at Erasmus (Strategic Management Department) from 2007 to 2009 and then at the University of Amsterdam. She came back to Erasmus in August 2019.


Flore’s current research focuses on the management of stakeholders and human capital. In particular, she studies how to organize firms and stakeholder-firm relationships to motivate stakeholders, and employees in particular, to cooperate with the firm and with each other. She is also interested in stakeholders’ reactions to the tradeoffs firms make among the interests of different stakeholder groups and in the dynamics that characterize firms-stakeholders interactions. Her work has been published in, among others, Academy of Management Review, Journal of Management, Journal of Management Studies, and Strategic Management Journal.


She serves as Associate Editor for Organization & Environment, is on the editorial board of the Academy of Management Review and Strategic Organization, and acts as ad-hoc reviewer for many journals and conferences.

The Business-Society Management department at the Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University, is seeking a highly motivated PhD candidate looking to study a topic in the area of sustainability and management. For this position, you will be able to freely choose your own research topic, within our department’s area of expertise. Potential research topics broadly cover the challenges that society and our natural environment face and then consider how organisations can address these challenges. Specific topics include (but are not limited to): systems and resilience thinking, sustainability issues in multinational enterprises and global value chains, corporate communication, sense-making processes, social innovation, business ethics, philanthropy, alternative organisational and governance forms such as social enterprises, commons and cooperatives, corporate social (ir)responsibility, (organisational) stigma, stakeholder management, and aligning corporate value propositions with societal issues.

Overall, we are looking for a candidate who is eager to learn to research how organisations and businesses can be key drivers of social change, and we welcome applications from a wide variety of backgrounds and perspectives. Strong applicants typically have backgrounds in business or economics and are looking to pursue an academic career. Creativity, self-direction, and a passion for scientific research are therefore essential qualities.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until May 15, 2023.
