The shortage of affordable housing in Aotearoa New Zealand has led to a cascade of housing related issues, causing poorer health and well-being outcomes. Public housing and its effects on individual and community well-being in Aotearoa is poorly understood. We are looking for a master’s candidate to contribute research on the comparative economic and social effectiveness of differing public housing and urban regeneration models to increase well-being outcomes.
We offer a Master of Public Health student to join the New Zealand Centre of Sustainable Cities at the University of Otago (Wellington campus). This is an opportunity to join a New Zealand first, applying a well-being framework to large-scale public housing initiatives, where mana whenua, iwi and Māori urban authorities are major partners with the Crown and local government.
Through this master’s course you will produce a 40,000-word thesis, conducting qualitative narrative interviews, analysing the data to compare findings from the IDI (Integrated Data Infrastructure).
Student applicants will need to have a strong academic record and high motivation (though public housing experience is also valued).Register your interest
