PhD Project in Consumer Behavior
Consumer behavior is the study of human responses to products, services, and the marketing of products and services. The Consumer Behavior research group of the Department of Marketing Management at Rotterdam School of Management (Erasmus University) is seeking a highly motivated PhD student who desires to pursue an academic career studying consumer behavior. A strong applicant is highly motivated to conduct novel research within the field of consumer behavior/psychology, has a background in psychology, business, statistics, or a related field, and desires to pursue an international career as a leading academic. The project will enable the PhD student to develop new theories about consumer behavior/psychology and support those theories with quantitative research. The project will be defined by the student and the advisors together and thus requires creativity, self-direction, and passion for scientific research.
