PhD Opportunities at ANU with Science Circus Pacific!

The Australian National Centre for the Public Awareness of Science at the Australian National University are seeking expressions of interest for PhD scholarships around an exciting new project: Science Circus Pacific.

Science Circus Pacific aims to build capacity for science outreach, science centres and informal science learning in the South Pacific, working in conjunction with Pacific partners, similar to past ANU capacity building projects in Africa (see http://cpas.anu.edu.au/outreach-activities/outside-australia/science-circus-africa). The project is supported by DFAT. It will commence 2019 and run for three years, hence would require candidates to commit to full-time PhD study. Ideally the candidate will be based at the ANU in Canberra, but flexibility is possible for the right candidate.

There is scope for diverse research – from program impact on various audiences, program components such as teacher workshops, school science shows, etc., science communication in international development, capacity building, cultural aspects, models for training, partnership and co-creating content, wider science communication capacity building, etc. Depends what you're curious about!

If you're interested, contact Graham Walker on g.walker at anu.edu.au<mailto:g.walker at anu.edu.au> or call +61 2 6125 9224 as soon as possible, we need to make decisions by August 31st.
