Griffith University is offering 2 PhD Scholarships to train a new generation of historical researchers in inter-disciplinary approaches to criminal justice research.
The 2 PhD Scholarships will be part of the ARC Laureate Fellowship project team to be led by Professor Mark Finnane. The ‘Prosecution Project’ will investigate the successes, failures and limits of the criminal trial in Australia from the colonial era to the post-war decades. Using the rich resources of Australian archives, it will provide an enduring foundational knowledge of Australian criminal justice in its historical and international context.
Successful applicants will have an appropriate Honours 1 or high 2A (or equivalent) undergraduate degree in a relevant social sciences or humanities discipline (especially history, law and criminology). He/she will be enrolled full-time.
The stipend is valued at $29,844 per year (tax free), and an additional $5,000 top-up scholarship, bringing it to a total of $34,844 per year. The Scholarship will be awarded for 4 years. Research allowance will be made available by the enrolling school. Students can also apply on a competitive basis for additional funds up to $3,000 for conference presentations and approved research activities.
