UPDATE: applications for this round of PhD scholarships are now closed.


We’re excited to announce that two prestigious PhD scholarships with CRADLE are now open to both domestic and international students. If you’re interested in assessment in higher education, come and study with us at CRADLE!

Two PhD scholarship opportunities are currently available with CRADLE in the area of ‘assessment in higher education’. Students will be based at CRADLE’s vibrant Melbourne CBD location, Deakin Downtown, and will have the chance to work with our team of leading higher education researchers: Prof. David Boud, A/Prof. Phillip Dawson, A/Prof. Margaret Bearman, Dr. Rola Ajjawi, and Dr. Joanna Tai.

We are interested in topics that align with one or more areas of our research program, and particularly in research around upcoming CRADLE research projects. Potential PhD topics include – but are not limited to! – feedback for learning, academic integrity and contract cheating, MOOCs, and peer assessment. For further information about potential PhD topics and associated supervisors, please visit the PhD information page [now closed]. If you would like to know more about the experiences of our current PhD students, why not check out their blog posts?

Please direct all initial enquiries to CRADLE’s Associate Director, A/Prof. Phillip Dawson – get in touch via email or on (+61 3) 9244 5259.
