The Opportunity

This graduate research opportunity is part of a cluster of scholarships that are focused in areas of research and scholarly excellence with leading Faculty of Arts supervisors. They form part of the Monash 2030 Global Impact program of research.

The Office for Women in Sport and Recreation (OWSR) is partnering with Monash University Faculty of Arts to investigate investment, funding and perceptions of women's sport. This fully funded PhD project will examine patterns of decision making, undertaking in-depth qualitative interviews with key stakeholders from sporting organisations, sports industries and media.

Undertaking this industry-focused PhD has several advantages: The successful candidate will be integrated into the existing Migration, Diversity & Inclusion GRIP cohort and will have access to funding to support fieldwork, travel, and conference attendance. The candidate will furthermore benefit from expert supervision from research leaders in social sciences, and by entering a PhD project with a pre-existing structure and industry partner.

Candidate Requirements

The successful applicant will have an excellent academic track record in a cognate discipline.

In its assessment, the selection committee will prioritise applicants who hold an Australian (or equivalent international) Honour's or Masters degree (in a relevant field), with a significant research component and with first-class honours/H1 awarded.

Details of eligibility requirements, including English-language proficiency skills, to undertake a Masters by Researcg in the Faculty of Arts are available at www. Applicants should ensure they familiarise themselves with these requirements before deciding whether they should apply.

Scholarship holders must be enrolled full-time and on campus. Please note: applicants who already hold a Masters by Research or PhD will not be considered.

The successful applicant will be expected to enrol by 30 November 2022. However, there may be some flexibility as to the date of commencement.

This role is a full-time PhD scholarship; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.
