PhD Scholarship Opportunity

The Centre for Regional Engagement at the University of SA, together with the CRC for Remote Economic Participation (CRCREP) is offering a PhD scholarship through the CRC REP research program entitled: Enduring Community Value from Mining.
This research will analyse the concept of community value and use this learning to develop models that turn short-term economic benefits from mining into long-term community assets in specific, remote places. Researchers will work with communities and mining companies to develop long-term investment strategies that are cognisant of intergenerational and cultural diversity. The research will generate strategies that will enable remote communities to better understand social impacts, building resilience to deal with sudden shocks and global changes. It is expected that students will spend considerable time working in remote communities. To be conducted in SA and WA, the PhD research will focus on the planned closure of the Leigh Creek Coalfield in SA and the Superpit in Kalgoorlie, WA. For further information about the research program, please contact Professor Fiona McKenzie at the CRCREP at f.mckenzie@curtin.edu.au. For information about the Centre for Regional Engagement, please contact guy.robinson@unisa.edu.au or jen.cleary@unisa.edu.au.
