Opportunity: PhD Scholarships in Population History

The Laureate Centre for History and Population is excited to invite applications for two (2) PhD scholarships in population history. The successful candidates will join the Laureate research team, under the supervision of Professor Alison Bashford, within the School of Humanities and Languages, Faculty of Arts Design and Architecture, UNSW.

PhD scholars will research Australian, Pacific or international history related to population. This may be focussed on medical, migration, Indigenous, gender, environmental, intellectual or political/economic history. Possible topics include colonialism, population and early political economy; depopulation across Australia or the Pacific; the reception of Malthus in Australia or Aotearoa/NZ; population and the United Nations after 1945; reproductive rights and human rights; biographical studies of key Australian demographers; the history of population and migration policies in Australia.

The scholarships ($28,854 per annum for up to four years) are available to Aus/NZ candidates with honours or masters qualifications in history, and will commence by 26/06/2022.

Applications will continue to be received until the positions are filled.
