Barwon Coast Sponsors PhD Scholarship

We are proud to announce a partnership with Federation University Australia to develop a study that will seek to further the recognised link between communities and coastal environments.

This study is a PhD project which will build a knowledge base around the social and ecosystem factors defining coastal environments and the correlation of these to coastal management and eco-protection challenges. Building on an existing research partnership between Barwon Coast and the Centre for eResearch and Digital Innovation (CeRDI) at Federation University, the research will consolidate complex and disparate views on coastal use and management available through baseline data captured within this partnership during early 2018.

The university is seeking an eligible candidate to undertake this study and we encourage all interested individuals to apply. The successful applicant will be working closely with Barwon Coast on this project and we are excited to continue our commitment to best practice coastal management and community engagement and be part of this groundbreaking research!
