Applicants interested in qualitative interview based and/or ethnographic approaches are particularly encouraged to apply. Applicants should have completed an Australian four-year undergraduate degree in a relevant discipline (such as Anthropology, Cultural Studies, Human/Cultural Geography, Sociology, or Politics) with first class honours, or demonstrate equivalent research qualifications such as a Masters degree with a substantial research component.
