Application procedure: Applications will be submitted through the University of St.Gallen's online application system and will be reviewed on a rolling basis until the position is filled. Applications will only be considered from candidates who satisfy the formal approval criteria of the University of St.Gallen's Ph.D. in Management (PMA) doctoral programme.

Position details: In addition to pursuing doctoral studies, the candidate will be expected to take over project management responsibilities (35% - 70%). The candidate will provide support for internal and external project activities at FIM-HSG, for example in planning and coordinating research projects with external clients. In addition, the candidate will also be expected to support research projects conducted at the institute.
Candidate profile and requirements: Applicants should have a Master's degree (or international equivalent) in the fields of International Business, Management, Strategy or similar. The candidate must have obtained a degree that allows the candidate to pursue doctoral studies at the University of St.Gallen. The candidate should be eager to conduct quantitative research and possess strong statistical and programming skills. The candidate should be familiar with Stata, VBA and Python. Ideally the candidate has already gathered experience in conducting quantitative research (e.g. as part of a term paper, Bachelor or Master thesis). The ideal candidate is organised, reliable, and flexible, and interested in both consulting and research activities. The position requires very good English language skills and good German language skills in written and oral form. The candidate will frequently interact with multinational students and clients as part of the FIM activities. The ideal candidate will therefore demonstrate a strong international orientation and have accumulated substantial international experience (e.g. through foreign studies, internships or meaningful extra-curricular activities). The salary is in accordance with the University of St.Gallen's salary scale for institute assistants with master's degrees.
