Doctoral Students

The IRN offers potential doctoral students supervision from an exciting array of active research scholars working in India, and on themes to do with the Indian immigrant diaspora. The IRN has a specific commitment to nurturing a collaborative environment for postgraduate work, and the events hosted have brought together postgraduates from Macquarie University with postgraduates working on South Asia or on related themes from all over Sydney's universities. The wide range of institutional contacts and affiliations in India enjoyed by members of staff have considerably facilitated our students' in their doctoral work in India, and in obtaining research visas from the Government of India.

It is advised that if you have a first class Honours or Honours equivalent in any of the disciplines and departments represented in the staff members involved with the Network you should contact the relevant staff member directly. Opportunities for shared inter-disciplinary supervision by staff members will also be considered if requested. In addition, the Anthropology Department's Masters in Global Health and Development Studies also allows  those without Honours equivalent to undertake field work in India or with Indian immigrants in Sydney under the supervision of Assoc. Professor Ram as part of their MAA degree. Those excelling in this program have also gone on to PhDs.
