Ph.D. Fellowship Announcement - University of Florida, USA

Gwendolyn Lee

I have funding to support one Ph.D. student to pursue a doctoral degree in business administration.


In particular, I would like to work with a student who is interested in studying the content and the communities of the Wikimedia projects.


I am in the process of developing a research project to examine the working principles of Wikimedia. This project is an extension to my earlier work on open source where I develop a community-based model of knowledge creation based on Linux kernel development (Lee, 2003 in Organization Science).


This fellowship is designed to train/develop academic researchers. The student is expected to develop original research proposal(s) and conduct empirical tests. Most students become employed as university professors upon graduation.


Please contact me if you are interested in the opportunity, or if you know some one whom you would recommend.
