    A three-year fully-funded PhD scholarship is available for an outstanding candidate to conduct research at the interface of Health Economics and Systems Modelling at the Curtin University School of Public Health. The PhD will develop a microsimulation model of the health system that allows for simulation of the lifecycle dynamics and the health status and health outcomes of the Western Australian population. The model will be developed using multiple sources of empirical data, including cross-sectional surveys, longitudinal surveys, administrative databases, vital statistics and Census data. The PhD will also consider the use of the microsimulation model as a method for the evaluation of policy interventions and the implementation of this method in practical situations.

    The PhD candidate will be supervised by experts in health economics, health data analytics and systems modelling. The health economics aspect will be led by Dr Delia Hendrie and Associate Professor Suzanne Robinson and the health data analytics and systems modelling by Associate Professor James Boyd and Dr Sean Randall.
