Edith Cowan University (ECU) is currently advertising a scholarship to support a PhD candidate to explore knowledges, capacities and actions of the Western Australian community service sector’s understanding of and engagement with the social justice impacts of climate change.

The WA community service sector has partnered with ECU to produce a Climate Justice and Resilience Toolkit. This Toolkit will support community service organisations to embed a climate justice lens in their operations, programs, and practice. The project is funded by Lotterywest and community sector partners. ECU's School of Arts and Humanities has contributed a full scholarship for a PhD student to join the project.

The PhD candidate will receive a 3-year scholarship for a stipend of $33,000 AUD per year (full-time), with possible 6-month extension. The successful candidate will be based in ECU’s School of Arts and Humanities in the Social Work program, working with an interdisciplinary team of researchers and community partners. The position can be based in Perth or the South West with capability to travel as needed. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and people of colour are strongly encouraged to apply.

Expressions of Interest for this scholarship are due by 12 June 2023.
