PhD Scholarship Opportunity in Disability and Policy

The Melbourne Social Equity Institute and the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health at the University of Melbourne invites applications for a PhD scholar to work as part the Centre of Research Excellence in Disability and Health (CRE-DH).

The CRE-DH involves leading researchers from across Australia and internationally with expertise in epidemiology, health economics, health and social policy, psychology, psychiatry, public administration and public health and the CRE will further develop the future research leaders in disability and health.

The project will focus on the intersections between the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and the mainstream service sector. You will be supervised by Chief Investigators on the CRE-DH and academics at the Brotherhood of St Laurence.

The project would suit someone with a strong research background in social and political sciences or related disciplines. People with lived experience of disability are strongly encouraged to apply.

Applications close on Friday 29 September 2017.
