The ERIM Business Processes, Logistics, and Information Systems (LIS) doctoral program trains students to apply state-of-the-art methodological skills and theoretical knowledge to key challenges that organizations face. Candidates based at the Technology and Operations Management (TOM) Department will participate in research that supports RSM’s mission to be “A Force for Positive Change”.

Candidates are invited to become active members of the large and diverse group of researchers at TOM, and to contribute to both management science as well as management practice in one or more of our three key areas: logistics and supply chain management (SCM section), operations and innovation management (IM section), and next generation business information management systems (BIM section).

Some examples of our current research topics are: Automated Warehousing Systems, Behavioural Operations Management, Big Data Analytics, Business Information Management, Goal Setting, Innovation Management, Creativity, Co-creation, Complex Systems, Leadership, Innovation Strategy, Inventory Management, Last-mile Delivery, Logistics, Omni-channel Assortment Planning, Policies for Collaborative Outbound Logistics, Port and Terminal Operations, Purchasing and Supply Management, Public Transport, Responsible Supply Chains, Risk and Security Management in Global Supply Chains, Supply Chain Management, Sustainability, Transportation, Urban Mobility and the Sharing Economy, and Value-based Purchasing in Healthcare.

We also welcome applicants who work on different or new topics broadly related to innovation, business information, and/or supply chains.
