Postgraduate Scholarship in Exercise Technologies in Rehabilitation: Uptake and Cost-effectiveness
Funding is available for a graduate with an Honours or postgraduate degree to undertake research leading to a PhD within a multi-centre NHMRC funded randomised clinical trial. This trial is evaluating the effectiveness of the addition of affordable technology to improve mobility and physical activity for people participating in rehabilitation. This PhD project will evaluate the uptake and cost-effectiveness of delivering this intervention to people admitted for rehabilitation. Data collection is being conducted across three hospital sites as part of the trial. Candidates will be based in Sydney. The project would suit an allied health professional.
The scholarship is valued at $25,849 per annum (tax exempt) for one year’s duration initially, but may be renewed in the following year, subject to satisfactory progress. Applicants will be expected to apply for an Australian Postgraduate Award during 2016.
