Calling All Sociology and Sci-comm Graduates

Following our call-out last September for keen students we are very excited to have on-board our first Sociology PhD student working on ‘Rewilding’ in the Australian context – more on that later.

So that leaves 3 amazing research opportunities —

We are seeking Sociology and Science Communication graduates for 3 exciting PhD projects that will help us reframe biodiversity conservation in Australia.

With our partners at Australian National University and the ACT Government we want to smash the mould on conservational thinking and practice in Australia by putting people and their actions front and centre in our analyses.

We are looking for social science and science communication graduates to take our interdisciplinary mission to the next level! So if you’re invested in the environment and are keen to partake in cutting-edge socio-ecological thinking and multi-method research on the various factors that shape how diverse communities engage with environmental issues, check out our four PhD project topics and get involved in the next generation of conservational work!
