Future PhD candidates
This PhD scholarship is related to a new ethnographic Project funded by the Australian Research Council (ARC) and the Victorian Health Promotion Foundation (VicHealth). We are seeking an outstanding applicant with a strong track record of academic excellence in anthropology, sociology, gender studies or other relevant discipline (i.e. youth studies).
The Project will collect ethnographic and qualitative interview data to comprehensively investigate drinking cultures among nurses and lawyers and aims to generate important new knowledge on the cultural and social practices that shape drinking among nurses and lawyers, and illuminate relations between drinking cultures and alcohol-related problems. The successful applicant will collaborate with the chief investigators to identify an ethnographic thesis project, which is able to contribute directly to the aims of the larger project while also reflecting the interests and aspirations of the individual.
The Scholarship is located at La Trobe’s Centre for Alcohol Policy Research (CAPR) – an innovative, multi-disciplinary world-class research facility at the forefront of alcohol research. Our research is used to promote and inform the development of evidence-based, effective alcohol policy in Australia and internationally. Our team of established and emerging experts, both in alcohol and related fields and research methods, offers doctoral candidates opportunities to develop and maximise their skills, networks and careers.
