PhD Scholarships - Griffith Criminology Institute Projects

Applications close 30 September, 2016
Overview
The Griffith Criminology Institute is proud to be introducing two new, targeted PhD scholarships. These scholarships are linked to projects designed by experienced academic staff and provide a framework for candidates to collaborate with a supervisory team with direct interest and expertise on a clearly designed project. Two PhD scholarships are on offer, one for each project described below.
Project 1: Market differentiation in crypto markets: Mapping difference in illicit drug supply platforms and types of suppliers in 'Dark Net' markets.
This project aims to explore the nature of illicit drug cryptomarkets on the 'Dark Net' and explore the extent to which parts of cryptomarkets can reasonably be compared to elements of traditional 'material' illicit drug markets. Cyber-crime and security issues are some of the fastest growing areas of concern to the criminological and criminal justice arena and experience on this project will position the successful PhD candidate at the forefront of the field.
Project 2: Developing a better understanding of police-youth encounters: Taking a procedural justice perspective.
This project examines how young people perceive the police and how police might reduce conflict and increase cooperation in encounters with young people. The successful PhD candidate will examine the factors that facilitate compliance and cooperation with police based on young people's interactions with police. The project will require a strong aptitude in statistics and would be best suited to someone who has an honours (preferably first class) in either criminology or psychology.
Duration
Successful candidates will be awarded funding for three years at a value of $30,000 per annum. These scholarships are available for full time study only.
Eligibility
  • Applicants must fulfill the criteria for PhD Admission and scholarship at Griffith University.
  • Applicants must have completed, or expect to complete a bachelor degree with honours (equivalent to IIA class) and be intending to enrol full-time in an approved doctoral program.
  • Applications from individuals with study, work or research experience in areas relevant to the project may also be viewed favourably.

How to apply
  • Applicants should visit the Griffith University website and follow the process for applying for entry to a Griffith University Higher Degree Research program, which also includes a section for scholarship application. When applying for entry applicants should specify the Griffith Criminology Institute PhD Scholarshipunder "Other" in the scholarship they wish to be considered for in their application.
