Applicant: We seek outstanding prospective Ph D candidates with strong applied mathematics or statistical skills and a keen interest in applying these to important scientific and policy questions.
It is not essential that the applicant have experience in infectious diseases but potential candidates should have a first class Honours degree or Masters degree with excellent grades.
A well-written, well-researched MPH dissertation can lead to a great job offer right after graduation. Writing a dissertation is a time-consuming effort: Students must conduct literature reviews, collect data, analyze their results and write hundreds of dense pages.
This makes it challenging for full-time students to also be full-time employees.
See project details We are seeking expressions of interest to undertake a Ph D in mathematical modelling of infectious diseases.
The proposed Ph D would apply mathematical models to predict the impact and cost-effectiveness of vaccination programs.The research aims to evaluate the Ironbark program’s impact on the rate of falls; social and emotional wellbeing; independence and mobility; and strength and balance of participants.The study also includes a nested process evaluation and economic analysis.How to apply: The supervisors will support any selected prospective candidate to apply for competitive Ph D scholarship via UNSW, with options for domestic or international students.Those meeting the initial criteria who wish to discuss further should email A/Prof Anthony Newall ([email protected]) with a CV and copies of academic transcripts for all prior degrees.The School has a wide range of research expertise in the field of Public Health and Health Services Management.Research candidates seeking to undertake a Ph D, Masters by Research or Master of Philosophy can look for potential research topics through the following resources: Prof Rebecca Ivers (School of Public Health and Community Medicine, UNSW) is seeking expressions of interest from candidates to undertake a Ph D or Masters by Research on a 5 year NHMRC funded cluster randomised control trial aiming to demonstrate the effectiveness of a community based falls prevention and healthy ageing program for Aboriginal people 45 years and older.This comparison may explain the strong evidence for over-diagnosis occurring in Australia, but not in New Zealand.The research project involves obtaining past College pathology test results of breast tissue (de-identified except for age, sex, country of residence Australia/New Zealand at the time of the test, and other specified variables), and comparison of rates of classifying test sample lesions as invasive breast cancer between Australian and New Zealand-based pathologists.Students could analyze national issues, like the new policies in the Affordable Care Act (ACA), or Obama Care, reported on by Global health is a hot field in schools of public health. President Jimmy Carter, to apply public health knowledge to developing countries.Thousands of students have been inspired by public health leaders,like Dr. However, students should take care when pursuing an MPH research project in an international topic.
