4 reasons to do a PhD on Healthy Housing
Apply your skills to an urgent social crisis
Currently in Australia, we see unaffordable, poor quality rental housing, a shrinking social housing sector, and Indigenous people faring poorly in our housing system. PhD researchers will contribute to developing a robust evidence base for healthy housing. Our network emphasises translating academic knowledge into policy outcomes. Global interdisciplinary expertise and connections
We are a cross-university network with researchers based across Australia and internationally. PhD candidates will have a supervisory panel drawn from researchers in our group whose specialties include Indigenous health, cost-effectiveness of interventions and social epidemiology.
Mentorship from leading researchers
Graduate research is a crucial time to develop skills and set yourself up for a career in academia, industry, or government. PhD candidates will be embedded in research teams, guided by professors in healthy housing, and will have access to professional development opportunities.
The Healthy Housing Research group will provide top-up scholarships of $5000 per year for 3 years to selected candidates.
Register your interest
Please contact Professor Rebecca Bentley (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Professor Emma Baker (email@example.com) to discuss your potential research topic by mid-September 2020 to allow time to prepare a scholarship application.
