PhD Scholarship - South Australia

The College of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences at Flinders University is offering a three-year PhD scholarship for full-time research on the Australian Research Council (ARC) funded project entitled ‘Resilient Humanitarianism: The League of Red Cross Societies, 1919-1991’. This project has Chief Investigators at Flinders University as well as partners from the University of Hull and the University of Stirling in the UK.

Further information on the project can be found on the project website.

The PhD student will focus on a case study of either blood transfusion initiatives, a core public health programme of the League, or the Junior Red Cross movement, the largest global international youth organisation in history.

The successful applicant will undertake their research within the College of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences at Flinders University, Adelaide, South Australia. The student would be supervised by Professor Melanie Oppenheimer, Professor Susanne Schech and Dr Romain Fathi, chief investigators on the project.  Professor Neville Wylie (University of Stirling) and Dr Rosemary Cresswell (University of Hull) will be available for additional support and consultation. The supervisory panel would also encourage the establishment of a cotutelle / jointly awarded PhD, based on the candidate’s circumstances and research priorities.

Please contact Professor Oppenheimer for further information.
