As part of UNSW’s Scientia PhD Scholarship program there is a unique opportunity to come and do a PhD under the supervision of Dr Scott Eacott, Dr Richard Nieshce, and Professor Colin W Evers.
Theoretically, the ideal candidate would have some background in education, leadership, and/or sociology. Particular preference would be given to candidates with working knowledge of social critical theory.
Methodologically, the project is diverse and the ideal candidate would have a skill set across one or more of the following: philosophical inquiry, empirical fieldwork (e.g., questionnaire and quantitative analysis; data mining of school-level performance data and resource usage; qualitative skills in interviews and focus groups), and/or document analysis.
Practically, the ideal candidate would have some skills engaging with professionals (e.g., educators, principals, teachers, systemic officers) and have effective written and oral presentation skills.
Personally, the ideal candidate would be willing to learn, be well read, and happy to network nationally and internationally.
