About This PhD Project

Project Description

A fully funded PhD scholarship is available with the Human-in-the-Loop Analytics (HiLA) program at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia. https://www.monash.edu/graduate-research/partnerships/hila-grip

HiLA is a Graduate Research Industry Partnership (GRIP) that has been established to allow Monash University and its Industry partners to collaborate on common research objectives.

With the support of Monash’ partners, HiLA PhD scholarships are provided with significant benefits beyond other scholarships on offer. These benefits include:

A fully funded PhD scholarship with Monash University that is available for domestic (Australian) and international students. The 3 to 3.5 year award covers all course fees and a $30,000 AUD per year tax-free stipend;
An internship with the Industry partner - where PhD candidates will spend a portion of their candidature located on site and being supported by the partner;
Access to real world problems supported by real world data;
Where the industry partner is located overseas or interstate, travel and accommodation (when working on site with the partner);
Travel and incidental support for conferences;
Enrollment in the HiLA professional development program;

All HiLA PhD scholarships will commence in Semester 2, 2019.

SUPERVISION:
The successful candidate will be supervised by Dr Paul Zhou from the Faculty of Business and Economics.

PROJECT DETAILS:
The specific project will support 2 X PhD candidates and centers around the following research opportunity:

The highest priority on any work site especially, a civil construction site, is safety.
The Australian Work Health and Safety Strategy 2012-2022 describes the construction industry more broadly, as a priority industry for work health and safety. While many process exist that govern safe operations in a construction workplace any opportunity to further reduce the risk to workers is of immense value to society. This research will consider novel ways of classifying individual worker daily and intermediary safety checks, diary, project and company safety related data and operational scheduling data and discover insights that can help better predict safety risks to workers on construction sites whilst improving productivity gains.

As a Graduate Research Industry Partnership project, the candidate will have access to knowledge and resources from Monash University and industry partner, Platformers who work with some of the biggest names in civil construction. The applicant will also have access to large scale proprietary datasets. It also provides the opportunity for research to be tested and implemented in solving real-world problems during the project cycle.
