13/09/2018 - Opportunity - PhD Scholarship in Survivorship
Applications for a scholarship to support a full-time PhD focusing on cancer survivorship are now being accepted at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. The aim of this PhD project is to develop an evidence-based, state-wide quality framework for survivorship care.
This project will be supported by the Australian Cancer Survivorship Centre, a Richard Pratt legacy (ACSC). The ACSC is a unique service based at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre. Our vision is to optimise the health and wellbeing of cancer survivors and their carers.
The successful applicant will receive a PhD scholarship of $30,000 p.a. tax free (up to 3 years), plus up to $8,500 to support the research and $1,500 for interstate relocation. This scholarship is funded by the Victorian Government. Prof Michael Jefford (medical oncologist and Director of ACSC) will be the principal supervisor.
For more information see this link.
Applications for the scholarship must include a cover letter, CV, academic transcripts and details of two referees. Applicants must also prepare a 1,000 word essay that includes a discussion of your research interest and understanding of the PhD project, as well as an outline of how you might approach this research.
