If you wish to be considered, please complete this online application by Tuesday 15 March 2022. Applications will be assessed in the following weeks and outcomes advised by April 2022.

Approximately 40 places are available, open to both domestic and international PhD students. Preference will be given to students for whom social identity theorising is central to their PhD research and you must have your supervisor’s endorsement to attend.

In addition, attendees must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 with a vaccine approved or recognised by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). You will be required to show evidence of being fully vaccinated (or having a valid medical exemption) via your COVID-19 digital certificate. This measure has been introduced by UQ to help protect the health and safety of the community and anyone who is unable to verify their vaccination status will not be eligible to attend. More information can be found on UQ’s website at
