Other information
The Climate Justice Research Centre at UTS is seeking a PhD research student to focus on the development of renewable energy in India. The student will be linked to an ARC Discovery project, 2018-21, ‘Decarbonising Electricity: a Comparison in Socio-ecological Relations’. The project investigates how legitimacy for renewable energy can be won or lost, and focuses on regions in Germany, India and Australia undergoing ‘energy transition’. The project uses ethnography combined with social and political analysis to understand what can be done to enhance the transition to renewable energy. The successful applicant will be based in India for a significant proportion of their studies and will develop their own focus for doctoral research on a topic related to the ARC project. They will be encouraged to become a full member of the project team, and be available to assist project participants and India-based research assistants both in terms of data gathering and the conceptual development of the project. Relevant research experience and demonstrable interest in the issue of decarbonisation is required; the ability to speak and read an Indian language is also a requirement.

Climate Justice Research Centre
The Climate Justice Centre, set up in 2017, includes eight academics, several research assistants and nine doctoral students: www.uts.edu.au/research-and-teaching/our-research/climate-justice-research-centre<https://www.uts.edu.au/research-and-teaching/our-research/climate-justice-research-centre>
