Project Description:

The Griffith Criminology Institute (GCI) is one of the largest, most vibrant, and high-performing criminology communities in the world. GCI researchers produce cutting-edge research helping to create safe, well-governed and equitable societies. The School of Criminology and Criminal Justice is the top-ranked university for Criminology and Law in Australia in the Global Ranking of Academic Subjects 2020. Griffith was one of only two universities in Australia to be awarded a rating of "well above world standard" in criminology research.

We are currently recruiting a PhD candidate to undertake research on gender-specific risk and protective factors associated with criminal victimisation and offending. The primary focus of this role will be to understand how early family, individual, and school factors can be targeted to prevent victimisation and offending among vulnerable male and female young people, with a particular focus on young people involved with child protective services. Success in this role requires the quantitative analysis of data drawn from a large multi-agency, intergenerational record linkage study of an Australian population cohort. This project will involve collaboration with a multidisciplinary team of researchers.

Funding InformationThe 2021 Griffith University Postgraduate Research Scholarship has an annual stipend of $28,597 (indexed) for a period of up to three years of full-time study. Please see the GUPRS Conditions of Award for more information.
