The Opportunity

A unique, exciting opportunity exists for an exceptionally talented candidate interested in undertaking a PhD at the Monash University Accident Research Centre (MUARC). MUARC is Australia’s largest and most respected accident and injuryprevention research organisation. MUARC's research, consultancy, training and scientific expertise include safety in all modes of transport, in the workplace, in the community and in the home. MUARC's goal is simple but profound: to prevent injury, save lives, and build futures.

The Thomas Triggs Memorial Scholarship: The Thomas Triggs Memorial Scholarship honours a man who made a remarkable contribution to the field of injury prevention and to Monash University throughout his career, which spanned almost four decades.

Professor Triggs was instrumental in establishing MUARC. Professor Triggs' development of MUARC's young driver, driver training and driving simulator research programs have led to the introduction of safety initiatives that have dramatically reduced Australia's road toll.

Professor Triggs died on September 7th, 2012 and in recognition of his contribution to the field of road safety, and as a personal tribute, the Trustees of the MUARC Foundation established the Thomas Triggs Memorial Scholarship.

The inaugural recipient, Ms Sarah-Louise Donovan, studied the influences for improved safety outcomes in high-risk organisations.
