Developing a theoretical model of successful employment for people with a disability
The Faculty of Business and the Australian Health Services Research Institute (AHSRI) at the University of Wollongong are seeking to award two PhD scholarships to high calibre candidates for a project titled “Greater inclusion of people with disability in Australian workplaces”. The scholarships are part of a $455K project funded by the Australian Research Council Linkage Projects scheme and the NSW Department of Family and Community Services.
The Faculty of Business at UOW is an internationally recognised faculty that provides flexible and innovative educational and research opportunities with strong ties to the business, government and non-profit sectors. We develop leaders with high level management, analytical and critical thinking skills that enable them to succeed in their chosen fields. Candidates will be based in the School of Management, Operations and Marketing with supervisors from the Faculty of Business and the Australian Health Services Research Institute.
This PhD study will conduct interviews with people with a disability and their employers to identify the factors that contribute to sustained employment of people with a disability, with a view to developing a theoretical model of success. It will then test the validity of this theoretical model through a quantitative survey of people with a disability.
- Experience/qualifications in the areas of management/human resources/social inclusion
- Experience conducting in-depth interviews with research participants (ideally with vulnerable populations such as people with disabilities)
- Experience analysing qualitative data to develop a theoretical model
- Experience designing quantitative surveys for research
- Experience conducting statistical analysis of survey data, including descriptive statistics and regression analysis
