Title

First Nations PhD Scholarships: ARC DECRA Fellowship - The Australian Preventive Justice Project

Description

Two PhD Scholarships are available for First Nations students on the ARC DECRA project, 'The Australian Preventive Justice Project'.

This project, led by Associate Professor Tamara Tulich (DECRA Fellow, UWA Law School), aims to generate the first account of Australian preventive justice. Through original legal, historical and critical research, the project will create new knowledge by mapping, for the first time, the legal architecture of preventive justice in the Australia since colonisation, and analysing these laws and their impacts through settler colonial and coloniality theories.

The project is seeking to appoint two First Nations PhD students to complete their doctoral research on topics related to the project. The PhD students will be supervised by Associate Professor Tamara Tulich, Noongar scholar Dr Robyn Williams (Curtin Medical School) and a suitable supervisor at UWA, and be mentored by the project's First Nations Project Steering Committee. The PhD Candidates will have the opportunity to participate in project meetings, publication and dissemination activities as part of their research training, and to be part of the vibrant and supportive research culture at UWA Law School.

For more information, please contact Tamara at tamara.tulich@uwa.edu.au or on (08)6488 4334.
