The University of Sydney is looking for a PhD student in Sports Management. You will find further details on their website.
The Johnny Warren Football Foundation NSW Ltd. has provided this scholarship to investigate the governance of Australian Football and its governing body (FFA). Building on recent reforms within the international and local football community, the aims of this research are to provide insights into how the governance of Australian football is experienced during this transitional period and how changes will be perceived.
This project will highlight the lessons within the reform of FFA that could help to integrate grassroots' voices in strategic decision-making. The research will also explore the potential for new governance arrangements to deliver positive outcomes including systems that would foster the sustainability and diversity of clubs and the sport more generally.
