An opportunity exists for an outstanding, full-time PhD candidate to undertake an agreed program of research in social science, psychology, criminology, sociology, injury prevention or related disciplines. The research project will be directly related to improving road safety outcomes for Queensland road users. The successful PhD candidate will be based within the newly established USC Road Safety Research Collaboration, located on the Sunshine Coast.

In collaboration with the supervisors, the successful candidate will undertake an agreed program of research focusing on one of the following areas: reducing impaired driving, enhancing rule compliance, increasing deterrence, developing better methods to predict risk, etc. Candidates must bring a passion for understanding and exploring complex road safety issues that can deliver real safety benefits for all Queensland road users. Applicants are encouraged to apply from a broad range of social science and behavioural disciplines.

The candidate will be supervised by world leading experts in improving road safety outcomes for Queensland road users. There may also be an opportunity to contribute to additional research projects with the USC Road Safety Research Collaboration team.
