Do you want to be part of shaping the future of audiology in Australia?
We are seeking highly motivated PhD Scholars to be part of an exciting team committed to improving outcomes for people with hearing loss. The program of research will focus on the development, implementation, and evaluation of a patient/family-centred hearing rehabilitation intervention.
A number of scholarships are available in areas pertaining to:
- Development of best-practice guidelines for patient-centric rehabilitation in people with hearing loss; and
- Improving hearing healthcare access and outcomes for people with hearing loss.
These projects can be applied to either children or adults with hearing loss, to best suit the experience and interests of the applicant.
The successful scholar will be based at either:
- The School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, University of Queensland
- The School of Health Sciences, The University of Melbourne.
The successful scholars will be under the supervision of HEARing CRC researchers and work in a research team led by Professor Louise Hickson. The scholar will be expected to engage with post-doctoral fellows and other research higher degree students within the School.
Applicants should have a primary Honours degree qualification (Honours Class 1 or Class 2A) OR a Master’s degree in a relevant professional area (e.g., Audiology, Speech Pathology or Psychology).
