Professor Yoshi Kashima from the University of Melbourne has a position available for an enthusiastic student who wishes to pursue a project to understand and improve people’s engagement in low carbon living.

The position comes with a PhD scholarship (30K per annum for three years), which is funded by a grant from the Low Carbon Living CRC (http://www.lowcarbonlivingcrc.com.au/) to Professor Yoshi Kashima, and a team of researchers located at the University of Melbourne (Professor Garry Robins, Dr Paul Dudgeon, and Professor Yoshi Kashima) and Swinburne University of Technology (Professor Peter Newton, A/Professor Christine Critchley, Dr Gordana Bruce). The student will be primarily supervised by Professor Kashima and a postdoctoral fellow (Dr Léan Obrien) – although the general contour of the project is defined, there is a great opportunity to develop a PhD project within the broad purview.

Students should have completed a fourth year degree in psychology or cognate discipline at the first class honours (or High Distinction) level overall with an empirical thesis completed at the first class honours level. The starting date is late February or March 2015.

If you are interested, please send your expression of interest, CV, and academic transcript to Yoshi Kashima (ykashima@unimelb.edu.au). We will continue to evaluate expressions of interest and make an offer when a suitable candidate is identified.
