Eligibility

To be eligible for this scholarship you must:

1) have a bachelor degree in consumer psychology or a relevant discipline (e.g. design, experimental psychology)
2) meet RMIT’s entry requirements for the Doctor of Philosophy
3) have successfully completed an honours or a postgraduate qualification in a business, psychology, or design-related area with a research component.

Project:

One of the key social challenges in a globalised society is to promote mutual understanding and respect for cultural differences. This is difficult to achieve because prejudice and intergroup discrimination are deeply ingrained in the human psychology. Discrimination along ethnic and cultural lines is therefore still widespread today. This PhD project will be part of a large interdisciplinary project ‘The Cultural Communalities Memory Game: Increasing Social Inclusion in a Multicultural Society’ in which research is relevant for consumer psychology, behavioural economics, and design. As the PhD candidate, you will take ownership of the consumer psychology part. Typically, you will conduct, analyse, and write up (in publications and thesis) a total of three experiments, including necessary pre-tests. Specifically, you will be part of a team researching the effectiveness of an innovative gamified behavioural intervention to generate social inclusion amongst multicultural players.
