PhD Scholarship

Closing date: 17 July 2020

Contact: Dr Hanabeth Luke
Email: hanabeth.luke@scu.edu.au 

Beyond adoption: finding more appropriate ways to evaluate the success of soil outreach.

Working with current and future Soil CRC projects, including a national landholder survey, this PhD research will expand our understanding of ‘success’ in the context of agricultural innovation and outreach. The candidate will critique the assumption that agricultural innovation succeeds mostly through linear transfer of knowledge from researcher to practitioner. The research will provide an expanded range of frameworks for considering and evaluating the success of innovative activities in Australian agriculture. Suitably qualified candidates with skills in both social research and agriculture are welcome to apply, especially those with interest in transdisciplinary research and systems thinking.

The principle supervisor, A-Prof Catherine Allan is based at Charles Sturt University. Click to find out more

How to apply: Interested applicants should send a CV and short (< 1 page) statement highlighting their research background and interests, with respect to the criteria above, to Dr Hanabeth Luke (hanabeth.luke@scu.edu.au). Only short-listed applicants will be notified. 

The PhD scholarship is funded by the Soil CRC.
