The Future Fuels Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) have identified that significant opportunity exists to adapt existing gas infrastructure for the production, transport, storage and use of more sustainable "future fuels" such as hydrogen, biogas and liquid derivatives like ammonia and methanol that can meet a significant part of local demand and generate export opportunities. However, this transition is not without social and economic challenges.

Our project "Enhancing acceptance and a social licence to operate of future fuel infrastructure through community engagement and deliberative processes" is a three-year project which aims to undertake a range of qualitative and quantitative research across Australia. It has a range of research objectives focused on developing an understanding of various stakeholder attitudes to future fuels and the different supply chain processes (e.g. affected local communities, trades and associated workers and emergency service workers and the broader public) and monitoring changes in attitudes of those stakeholders engaged in deliberative and longitudinal research processes.

We are seeking two PhD students - with a background in the social sciences with an interest in deliberative processes, community and stakeholder engagement.

To be eligible, you must meet theentry requirements for a higher degree by research.

The Scholarships duration is three years with the possibility of two 6-month extensions in approved circumstances.
