PhD Scholarship with OTARC

The Olga Tennison Autism Research Centre (OTARC) is offering a 3-year full-time Postgraduate Research Scholarship, funded by the Autism Cooperative Research Centre (, to a highly motivated student. The student will study factors associated with transition to adulthood in individuals on the autism spectrum. The PhD candidate will be supervised by Associate Professor Amanda Richdale, and Autism CRC Post-Doctoral Research Fellow, Dr Lauren Hollier.

The PhD candidate will develop and conduct a research project working within the Autism CRC “Longitudinal Study of Australian School Leavers with Autism” (SASLA). SASLA is following individuals on the autism spectrum, aged 15-25 years and their parents longitudinally, over 2 years, across a range of educational and vocational, wellbeing and mental health factors. We are now collecting 1- and 2-year follow-up data.

The PhD place is based at the La Trobe University Bundoora campus. Olga Tennison Autism Research Centre
