Vulnerability, Health and Environmental Risk PhD Scholarship

Updated: about 7 hours ago

We envisage that this research will take an interdisciplinary approach. It will examine how vulnerable populations are effected by contaminated lands, examine the barriers that they face in developing effective responses, and identify solutions to improve response strategies for government and other support agencies.

Candidates with a background in public health, planetary health, healthy planning or health geographies would be ideal, although other disciplinary backgrounds will be considered if they have an interest in extending their theoretical and methodological scope.

We are seeking a PhD student to undertake this research.
