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).

Please consider to candidate for one or more of these fulltime and fully funded research positions.
One of the PhD researchers will work on the role of the athlete when it comes to fraud prevention in sports organizations. More precisely, this PhD researcher will mainly conduct research on how moral identity, moral engagement, and dilemma training can help to prevent fraud in sports. 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 and the Team Social Psychology of the Department of Developmental, Personality, and Social Psychology of Ghent University.
