Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, Australia, offers three-year PhD scholarships, worth approximately A$49,000 per annum (including a A$23,728 p/a stipend, and a tuition fee scholarship). We are particularly interested in students with a training in history, anthropology or related disciplines in the humanities or social sciences, who would like to work on projects in the following areas:

- refugee resettlement

- refugee and asylum seeker policy

Successful applicants would be located at the Swinburne Institute for Social Research, and supervised by Professor Sandy Gifford and/or Professor Klaus Neumann. Pending the granting of an Australian visa, successful applicants could enrol as early as January 2013.

Non-native English speakers will need to provide evidence of their language skills at the time of application (TOEFL or IELTS test, or 24 months of full-time study in English).

Please send expressions of interest, accompanied by a CV, academic transcripts, two unpublished writing samples and a research proposal, to Professor Sandy Gifford,, no later than 1 August 2012.
