About the position

The Faculty of Health Sciences and Medicine is currently offering the opportunity to apply for Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) position, as part of a NHMRC-funded Centre for Research Excellence in Sleep Health Services research. Applicants will have a degree with a substantial research project (e.g. Research Masters’ degree, Masters’ degree with treatise component, or Bachelor degree with honours).

The National Centre for Sleep Health Services Research (https://www.ncshsr.com/) brings together an extensive network of internationally recognised experts in sleep and respiratory medicine/research, general practice, nursing, pharmacy, health services and policy research, epidemiology, health economics and sleep health technologies. Using this expertise it will show how primary care can be placed at the centre of sleep disorders service delivery. The focus will be on deployment of simplified, cost-effective, evidence-based methods for diagnosing and managing sleep problems in primary care, with primary care practitioners better connected and supported with specialist sleep services in a “hub and spoke” model

We are currently seeking expressions of interest for a funded PhD position. The successful candidate will be expected to commence in May 2020. Possible topic areas include implementation of clinical practice guidelines for obstructive sleep apnoea and chronic insomnia in primary care and decision support on available treatments for obstructive sleep apnoea and chronic insomnia.

Please note: this PhD opportunity will suit a variety of backgrounds (including: medical, nursing, allied health, health policy, public health) and involve a mix of quantitative and qualitative work (e.g. systematic reviews, before and after studies, RCTs, qualitative interviews) but laboratory work is NOT a component of this position.
