“Most New Zealanders want to live in a society that values girls, women, wāhine, intersex, trans women and non-binary people. But, when it comes to our health system, New Zealand is failing us. We need change to happen now.” — 2021 Gender Justice Collective

The best place for you to be based during your studies is the College of Creative Arts, Massey University in Wellington, New Zealand. There will also be connection and engagement with Victoria University of Wellington.

You will be jointly supervised by Anna Brown (Toi Āria: Design for Public, Massey University) and Rhian Salmon (Victoria University) who are both part of the Engagement Group Lab in Te Pūnaha Matatini, and Dr Claire Robinson (College of Creative Arts).

Dr. Siouxsie Wiles (University of Auckland) and Kate Hannah (University of Auckland) will also be available in mentoring roles.

You will be part of Te Pūnaha Matatini, the Aotearoa New Zealand Centre of Research Excellence for Complex Systems. Te Pūnaha Matatini brings together different disciplines, ways of thought, methods, and people to define and solve society’s thorny interconnected problems.

Informal enquiries are welcome by email to Associate Professor Anna Brown.

Eligibility

This scholarship is only open to residents of New Zealand and Australia. We are happy to consider students from a diverse range of fields, however knowledge of participatory design methodologies and an interest in inclusive research approaches will be an advantage for this project. The successful candidate will hold, or expect to complete soon, a masters degree, or similar, in a relevant discipline. Applicants from underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply, as are students with family commitments. Our research group aims to achieve work-life balance within a productive scientific environment.

The start date is flexible but would preferably be between September 2021 and March 2022.
