For the academic year 2022/2023, Curtin University is offering a PhD Scholarship on Youth Drinking Trends.
Young people are drinking less than they have in the past. But we don’t know whether this holds true throughout one’s life. This ARC-funded scholarship will aid in the identification of strategies for ensuring that recent decreases in teenage drinking are sustained and reinforced as these young people grow older. It will contribute to the development of new and effective harm prevention policies and interventions by generating new knowledge about the trajectories of youth drinking into young adulthood, changing risk and protective factors for alcohol problems, and assisting in the development of new and effective harm prevention policies and interventions. The initiative will target young people in Australia, Sweden, and the United Kingdom, and will include extensive cooperation with major international research teams as well as foreign travel.
The PhD applicant will join the National Drug Research Institute’s developing Melbourne office and will work on critical aspects of the broader research, including the link between health inequities and drinking patterns.
Worth of Scholarship
- The scholarship pays a living stipend of $29,000 per year for up to three years of full-time study.
