PhD Scholarship in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Male Health
A key priority area of the Andrology Australia program is to raise the awareness of male reproductive health disorders and associated conditions in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.
To build capacity in Indigenous Health Research, a scholarship from Andrology Australia is available to an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander student to undertake full time research towards a PhD degree. It is proposed that the project will focus on health service access and primary health care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander males.
The appointed PhD student will possess either a Medical or Allied Health Professional qualification and registered with their relevant association with a demonstrated research interest in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander male health issues. Practical research experience and ability to engage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander males in discussions about their health and wellbeing are essential requirements for this role. Potential applicants will need to negotiate their candidature with an Australian University.
The successful applicant will receive a PhD scholarship as an annual tax-free stipend equivalent to the NHMRC Postgraduate Scholarship Stipend (approx. $30,500 – $35,500 p.a) for three years full-time. Opportunities to also apply for a NHMRC scholarship and allowances will be encouraged.
The Andrology Australia Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Male Health Reference Group will oversee the selection process.
Expressions of Interest (EOI): Applications are now closed.
