MPhil Scholarship - UNSW Sydney (apologies for cross-posting)

City Futures Research Centre and the City Planning Program at UNSW is offering an MPhil scholarship on the theme of owner-led housing redevelopment. The scholarship is associated with a new Australian Research Council project called Reassembling the city: understanding resident-led collective property sales. The project investigators are A/Prof Simon Pinnegar, A/Prof Hazel Easthope and Dr Laura Crommelin, and A/Prof Kristian Ruming of Macquarie University. This 3-year ARC project aims to investigate the emerging phenomenon of residential collective sales - where neighbours come together to sell their properties collectively - and the implications for urban residents and governments at local, metropolitan and national levels. The MPhil scholar will be expected to develop and carry out a piece of research that supports the wider aims of the ARC project, but is encouraged to focus in depth on a particular aspect of the collective sales phenomenon.  More details about the scholarship and potential topics are available at https://cityfutures.be.unsw.edu.au/research/projects/reassembling-city-understanding-resident-led-collective-property-sales/.

Scholarship Value: The successful candidate will receive a stipend of $28,092 (2020 rate) per year for a maximum of two years.

Entry Requirements

Application process: Potential applicants are strongly encouraged to get in touch with A/Prof Simon Pinnegar (s.pinnegar@unsw.edu.au) in the first instance, to discuss how their research interests align with the wider ARC project. Applications to be received by 3 May 2020.
