Joint PhD project
Zuyd’s Research Centre Global Minds @ Work (part of the Hotel Management School Maastricht), is looking for a highly motivated PhD candidate / junior lecturer who seeks to conduct their PhD research on the effectiveness of intercultural educational interventions in international classrooms, based on the Global Mind Monitor research project.
The PhD project is a collaboration between Zuyd University of Applied Sciences in Maastricht and Erasmus University Rotterdam. You will be employed at Zuyd as a PhD candidate / lecturer and embedded as a PhD student in the Erasmus Graduate School of Social Sciences and the Humanities. Your promotor will be affiliated with the EUR and you will have a daily supervisor at both institutes. Your daily professional activities will take place in Maastricht and we expect you to be able to travel to Rotterdam on a regular basis. You will be able to participate in the PhD programme offered by the Erasmus Graduate School of Social Sciences and the Humanities (https://www.egsh.eur.nl/ )
The PhD project (60 %) has an anticipated (flexible) starting date in September 2023 and is funded by Zuyd University of Applied Sciences for four years. Your lecturing activities (20-40 %) will take place at the Hotel Management School Maastricht.
Over the past decades, educators in higher education have been designing and analyzing a variety of educational interventions and strategies to support students’ intercultural learning. The goal of these activities is to promote intercultural competences among students, and prepare them to become professionals and citizens that can thrive in a challenging, diverse and globalized world. Some programs aim to internationalize their overall curriculum, while others set up (virtual) exchange programs with international partners, offer shorter projects or courses on intercultural learning, promote international internships, or try to internationalize their staff and students and use English as a language of instruction.
The goal of this PhD project is to conduct a structural analysis on how different educational interventions affect the long-term development of intercultural competences of students in higher education. To do so, the PhD candidate will use quantitative data from a large-scale longitudinal research project from Zuyd University’s research Center Global Minds @ Work that has been running since 2017: the Global Mind Monitor (GMM). This is a self-reflection tool on intercultural competences that includes – among others – the Multicultural Personality Questionnaire and the Cultural Intelligence scale. Currently, over 20.000 students have participated in one, two, three or more measures, leading to a unique longitudinal dataset that allows the PhD candidate to analyze student development over time. Using the GMM dataset as a basis, the PhD project will specifically focus on the long-term development of intercultural competences in higher education, applying advanced quantitative methods such as Multilevel Modeling, Latent Growth Curve Modeling or Latent Class Analysis.
