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.

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 Team Sport Management of the Department of Movement and Sports Sciences (Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences) of Ghent University.
