PhD Recruitment

I am recruiting a full-time PhD student to join me in early 2023 at the Institute for Positive Psychology and Education at ACU. The PhD student will work with me on a motivation intervention designed to boost high school students’ interest and course-enrolment in STEM subjects. This intervention will also aim to increase gender equality in STEM education and careers. This project is embedded within my ARC Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA). See here for the full project description).I was recently also listed in the Top 10 most productive early career researchers in educational psychology and in the Top 2% most cited researchers in education in the world. The PhD student will receive a standard Australian Government Research Training Program (RTP) Stipend scholarship for three years valued at $29,863 per year, with an additional $3,000 top-up per year. Candidates who have teaching experience in math and other STEM subjects are preferred. You can visit for more information on my research directions. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
