Purpose of award
To promote links between CTWD and high-flying/ promising early career researchers that can help further CTWD networks and international reputation in the short-term and long-term future
To further strengthen the research culture of CTWD through the presence of (additional) dynamic, enthusiastic, and well-trained early career researchers
To promote CTWD’s reputation as an international research institution
To provide networking opportunities and mentoring to CTWD PhD students
To learn about practices of other research institutions and business schools that might be relevant to CTWD
Criteria for applicants
High potential/ outstanding post-doctorates/ early career researchers that are interested in advancing work design research
Quality, fit, and feasibility of proposed research during the visit (see 2019/2020 topics below)
Ideally completed PhD or almost completed PhD, and less than 6 years post PhD (For PhD students, ensure you have your supervisor’s agreement to visit before applying).
International candidates (i.e., outside of Australia)

Small stipend of $500 towards additional research/ travel expenses
Topics for 2019/2020 visits
Antecedents of work design e.g., detailed studies of new technologies affect work design and outcomes; extensions of the ‘poor work design begets poor work design’ study (Parker, Andrei, Van Den Broeck, Journal of Applied Psychology, 2019)
New outcomes of work design e.g., personality change studies using existing large-scale studies; experiments on cognitive consequences; neuroscience studies (see Parker, 2017 work design growth model focusing on cognitive, identity/personality, moral outcomes)
Minimum visit: 3 weeks; Maximum – subject to discussion
Candidates should submit their CV and a 4-5 page proposal outlining their intended topic by 31st July, 2019 to Sana Arslan. Candidates should propose what research they would like to do on the topic of work design during their visit, how they intend to do the research, and an approximate time scale.
