The Union Housing Research LaB (UHRL) is a unique education and research collaboration between RMIT University and Unison Housing, Victoria’s largest social housing provider. The LaB is situated in the Centre for Applied Social Research in the School of Global, Urban and Social Studies (GUSS). The LaB was established in 2017 and is funded for five years to undertake an innovative research program informed by the experiences of service users and providers.
We are seeking highly motivated and qualified applicants for two PhD scholarships to commence in March, 2018.
The scholarships will be for two studies:
1) an ethnographic study of two mixed tenure sites that examines the aspects that contribute to successful (or otherwise) communities;
2) a qualitative study examining the challenges formerly homeless households face settling into social housing and the strategies they use to address them.
Both studies will be attached to the LaB’s flagship longitudinal study of community, public, affordable and transitional housing. This study will track approximately 300-400 new tenancies over a three year period.
The successful candidates will work alongside the Director and Deputy Director of the LaB, as well as the LaB’s Post-Doctoral Research Fellow, and other PhD candidates.
