For the PrOFS (Prevention Of Fraud in Sports) research project, they 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, they are looking for a wide range of distinct research profiles (e.g., legal, criminological, psychological, economic, management).
The PhD researchers will work on organizational aspects related to fraud prevention in sports organizations. More precisely, this PhD researcher will mainly conduct research on how sport organizations can prevent fraud in their organizational environment by means of e.g., good governance and ethical leadership, as well as on the development of a new agency to monitor fraud in sports.
