SCHOLARSHIPS - Four PhD scholarships available

by | December 16, 2019

The deadline for applications for four PhD scholarships at the University of Queensland has been extended to 17 January 2020.

The project

The University of Queensland is offering four PhD scholarships as part of a large new research project with the State Library of Queensland that will involve extensive oral history interviews.

The three-year project to develop a new online Queensland Atlas of Religion (QAR), will analyse and document patterns of religious diversity in Queensland now and in the past. 

It has been awarded Australian Research Council Linkage funding and is based in the University of Queensland’s School of Historical & Philosophical Inquiry (St Lucia campus, Brisbane). 

The four PhD projects would be suitable for Studies of Religion, History and Social Science graduates interested in exploring the history of religion in Queensland and its contemporary implications. One of the scholarships (on Aboriginal Christianity) has been identified for an Indigenous researcher. All four projects will include oral history-based research, for which the researchers will receive training and technical support through SLQ.
