Professor Shirley Scott is looking for up to two exceptional candidates with a background in International Law or International Relations (a working knowledge of both is preferable) to undertake a PhD on the highly prestigious Scientia Scholarship on her Climate Change and the UN Security Council project. Applications close on 21 July 2017.
This research will assess the institutional innovations necessary for the United Nations Security Council to play a constructive role in responding to climate change. Attention is shifting from the question as to whether the Council could legitimately participate in climate governance to that of how. The research will impact the work of NGOs and may shape the policy of Council members, particularly non-permanent members. It will build on path-breaking work already being done at UNSW and internationally on the specific policy tools that the Council could bring to bear on this global challenge.
UNSW Scientia PhD scholars are awarded a prestigious scholarship package of $50,000 per annum, comprising a tax-free living allowance of $40,000 per annum for 4 years, and a support package of up to $10,000 per annum to provide financial support for career development activities.
