Two PhD scholarships are available with Deakin University’s School of Psychology. These scholarships are based at Deakin University’s Melbourne Burwood Campus.
We are seeking applications from highly motivated postgraduate students for two related PhD projects with the Australian Temperament Project Generation 3 Study (ATP-G3) which is one of only a handful of prospective three generation studies worldwide. The ATP-G3 Study is funded by the Australian Research Council for 3 years (2013-2015) and brings together researchers from Deakin University, the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute, the Royal Children's Hospital, the University of Melbourne, the University of Otago (NZ), the University of New South Wales, and the Australian Institute for Family Studies.
The purpose of the ATP-G3 Study is to examine transgenerational (pre-conception) determinants of infant mental health and wellbeing. The parent cohort study has followed the social and emotional development of around 2000 participants (and their parents) across 15 waves of assessment over 30 years. The offspring cohort study has assessments during pregnancy, at birth and 12 months postpartum. Both PhD projects will focus on parental caregiving and infant attachment behaviours and involve training and accreditation in the administration and coding of the Emotional Availability Scales and the Strange Situation protocol.
The scholarship stipend rate is $26,088 per annum for 3 years.
