Ghent University is a world of its own. Employing more than 8,000 people, it is actively involved in education and research, management and administration, as well as technical and social service provision on a daily basis. It is one of the largest, most exciting employers in the area and offers great career opportunities. With 11 faculties and more than 80 departments offering state-of-the-art study programmes grounded in research in a wide range of academic fields, Ghent University is a logical choice for its staff and students.
For the PrOFS (Prevention Of Fraud in Sports) research project, we are looking for multiple PhD researchers. The SBO PrOFS project (funded by FWO – Research Foundation Flanders) starts in October 2020 and will run until September 2024. Led by professor Annick Willem, a consortium of researchers of Ghent University and the University of Leuven will study fraud in sports in all its aspects. Afterwards, specific tools will be developed to prevent fraud in sports in close contact with a large number of leading organizations in the field of sports and beyond. A fair share of the work packages will be executed by PhD researchers. Given the complex, multidisciplinary, and diverse nature of fraud in sports, we are looking for a wide range of distinct research profiles (e.g., legal, criminological, psychological, economic, management). Would you like to contribute to a societally very relevant research project and a fraud proof future for sports? Please consider to candidate for one or more of these fulltime and fully funded research positions.
One of the PhD researchers will work on causes and consequences of fraud in sports by studying existing cases of fraud (e.g. match-fixing, human trafficking, bribery, and financial and social fraud, including money laundering) and by collecting new data with a varied group of respondents (e.g. athletes, delegates of sport federations, fans, sponsors) and (inter)national experts (e.g. UEFA and FIFA delegates, academic experts, policy delegates). More precisely, the objective is to create a picture of actual vulnerabilities and consequences of fraud in sports, and the effectiveness of preventive initiatives.
The successful candidate will be able to enrol in a fulltime and fully funded PhD position for a maximum of four years (upon yearly positive evaluations) within the IRCP (Institute for International Research on Criminal Policy) of the Department of Criminology, Criminal Law and Social Law (Faculty of Law and Criminology) of Ghent University. Successful completion of the PhD project will lead to the obtainment of a doctoral degree (PhD) in Criminological Sciences.
For this specific position, we are looking for someone with the following characteristics and assets:
