The successful applicant will be required to undertake field research (participant observation, interviews, observation) involving work in the evening and on weekends.
This Scholarship is available to Australian or New Zealand citizens or Australian Permanent Residents only.

Applicants with qualitative research experience in a relevant field are strongly encouraged to apply.
