Australian Research Council PhD scholarship opportunity 


An Australian Research Council (ARC) scholarship investigating the causes and consequences of population turnover in the Northern Territory is available for a Charles Darwin University PhD student.

This ARC scholarship is offered in partnership with the Northern Territory Government and Australian Bureau of Statistics.

The PhD project will be supervised by Dr Julie Roberts of the Department of Theory of Art and Design at Monash University, with co-supervision by the School for Social and Policy Research at CDU.

Dr Roberts said that the NT Mobility Project will examine the characteristics and drivers of high population mobility in the non-Indigenous population of the Northern Territory.

‘Part of the research will explore the particular context of the city of Darwin and other like ‘spaces’ (such as Darwin’s sister city Anchorage, USA) in which social memory is both created and embedded,’ she added.

Applicants need a relevant honours or postgraduate qualification at a standard that meets the University’s PhD and scholarship entry requirements (minimum H2A average). Relevant previous study for the PhD scholarship would include history, human geography, sociology, anthropology, philosophy and policy or cultural studies.
