Doctoral Scholarship - Socio-economic inequalities, alcohol and child maltreatment

Applications are invited to apply for a PhD scholarship with the alcohol research team at the SHORE & Whariki Research Centre, College of Health, Massey University, New Zealand. We are two multidisciplinary research groups working in a Treaty of Waitangi partnership model to produce excellent research with the aim of improving health and wellbeing in Aotearoa, New Zealand and globally.

The PhD is part of a wider study assessing the impact of alcohol on child maltreatment funded by the Health Research Council of New Zealand. The PhD will focus on socio-economic inequalities, alcohol and child maltreatment and identify if heavy parental alcohol use is a factor underlying child maltreatment risks in disadvantaged versus higher SES populations.

This three-year scholarship is valued at NZ $25,000 p.a. plus tuition fees. The candidate will be based at our offices in central Auckland, New Zealand. This scholarship could suit a candidate from a number of disciplines. Some quantitative skills will be needed.

Applicants are encouraged to read about Dr Taisia Huckle's research and recent research by the Shore & Whariki Research Centre.

Applicants must meet the University’s criteria for entry into the PhD programme and have a grade average sufficient to be eligible for a doctoral scholarship.

Consideration will normally be given to applicants with a grade average of A- (7.0 on a nine-point scale) or equivalent.

Those who are interested in applying are invited to email Dr Taisia Huckle with a brief outline of your relevant experience and curriculum vitae
