Doctoral Position in Computer Science at Birkbeck College

Any big organisation in which knowledge is distributed among many individuals faces problems of both knowledge distribution and of potential knowledge loss. The latter is an even greater risk in organisations with a high level of personnel rotation but it has become widespread as the traditional arrangement between companies and employees shift from long arrangements ("for life") to short arrangements in which employees change companies frequently. When knowledge is concentrated in an individual, the departure of this individual means that knowledge can be lost for the organisation. This research aims at finding ways in which digital technologies can be leveraged to reduce the long-term costs of hand-overs, reduce the loss of knowledge associated to rotation of personnel, and increase the effectiveness of hand-overs.
The studentship covers fees at Home/EU rate, plus an annual stipend of £ 15,863 for 3 years.
