Masters or PhD Opportunity - The Coolamon Study: Burns in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children
Are you an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander person and interested in pursuing a research degree? Our research team at The George Institute for Global Health (University of Sydney) are seeking expressions of interest from candidates to undertake a PhD on a recently commenced NHMRC funded project examining burns in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children across 4 states. This position will be based in Sydney.
What will you be contributing to? The objective of this study is to understand the burden of burns, access and drivers of care, and long term impact on health in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children with serious burns. This is a much needed study in an important but under-researched area and outcomes will be used to inform the development of appropriate, best practice, models of care in partnership with clinicians and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health peak bodies. A range of projects are possible for PhD focused research.
Why study with us? You will have the opportunity to engage in world-class research under the guidance of highly-respected researchers and supervisors. We offer dedicated mentoring and support to our research students and additional training and coursework is provided where needed. If you have an undergraduate degree in health sciences (medicine, nursing, allied health, psychology or public health), or in education, a Research Masters or Honours degree and want to investigate the opportunities, then touch base with us now! We will support you to apply for scholarships and will provide extensive support and guidance throughout your candidature.
