    UQ earmarked scholarship

    Earmarked scholarships are funded by the Australian Government to assist PhD students with their living costs and tuition fees. Scholarships are offered for projects that are aligned with recently awarded Category 1 research grants. They offer students the opportunity to work with leading researchers and contribute to large projects of national significance.

    We are offering two scholarships to exceptional domestic students who wish to undertake a PhD project at the NHMRC Centre of Research Excellence on Women and Non-communicable diseases: Prevention and Detection at The University of Queensland.

    Our first project will conduct a comprehensive assessment of Australian Women’s use of health services across life stages, identifying key factors influencing distinct patterns of health service use and assessing the comparative impact of NCDs on health service use.

    Our second project will undertake a systematic investigation into the associations of established and emerging risk factors at each stage of women’s lives (including early life, young adults, main reproductive stage, menopausal transition and later life) with NCD incidence (using both prevalence and age at onset of each NCD), including multimorbidity.

    The project descriptions above is a brief outline of what the project hopes to achieve. Supervisors will work with candidates to develop a PhD project that is in line with the candidate’s research interests and also fits within the overall scope of the outlined projects.

    Students will enrol through The University of Queensland’s Faculty of Medicine.

    The successful applicants will be based at the NHMRC Centre for Research Excellence on Women and Non-communicable Diseases: Prevention and Detection in Herston, Brisbane.  

    More details about earmarked scholarships can be found on UQ’s graduate school website.

    If you have any further queries please contact the CRE project coordinator, Ms. Reshika Chand.
