Graduate Research Industry Partnerships:

Going, going (almost gone), Behaviour Change Scholarships

Behaviour change research is a fascinating multidisciplinary field that offers enormous scope and opportunities to solve public policy issues that improve our world.

There is, in fact, strong demand for behavioural experts who can straddle the worlds of academia and conduct research that reveals insights into human behaviour - how to influence it. To fill this gap, Monash University is offering Behaviour Change PhD scholarships through the Graduate Research Industry Partnership (GRIP) program.

Several lucky candidates were awarded scholarships through the program in November. The good news is that several places still remain open to candidates who will get to work with some of Australia’s largest government agencies on big issues such as road congestion, driver distraction, improving healthcare and public sector training.

Successful candidates will work with and learn from some of Monash University’s most innovative researchers as well as a cohort of 18 PhD candidates who will share the GRIP journey with each other.

This is an exciting opportunity but applicants will have to get in quick.

Expressions of Interest close on 2 January 2018. However, please note that applications are being reviewed daily and interviews are being held progressively, so places may fill sooner. Apply NOW. Behaviour Change GRIP (2018 start)
