The Postdoctoral Research Fellow will be a foundational appointment in the Malaysian Node of the Monash Climate Change Communication Research Hub. Based in Kuala Lumpur, and working collaboratively with colleagues in the Node and the Hub, the Fellow will develop and complete a three-year research project of social research. This will involve conducting national surveys, using latent profile analysis in the first year to discover the profile of interpretive communities and thereby generate a baseline which will inform subsequent studies needed to guide delivery of climate communication programs. The program of research will be guided by the Supervisor, the cross-campus Advisory Steering Group in Malaysia, and the Director of the Hub in Australia.
The successful applicant will hold a PhD in the relevant discipline, awarded in the last 5 years. The applicant should be familiar with survey approaches and fieldwork and able to demonstrate a sophisticated understanding of linguistic distribution and complexity in Malaysian society.
