Other PhD opportunities
1. The Australian Institute of Health Innovation (AIHI) (Macquarie University), and Australian Genomics have a scholarship available for a PhD student to undertake a theory-based process evaluation to explore the key mechanisms behind successful implementation of genomic sequencing (Project: 'Genomics implementation 1'). The AIHI Behaviour Change Stream has collaborated with Australian Genomics to design this project.
2. The Australian Institute of Health Innovation (AIHI) (Macquarie University), and Australian Genomics have a scholarship available for a PhD student to undertake research with the general public and recipients of genomic sequencing in the existing Australian Genomics flagships, with a view to identify perceptions and experiences relating to the implementation of genomic sequencing in healthcare organisations. (Project: 'Genomics Implementation 2').
3. Australian Genomics has a PhD project available under its Program 4 research area 'Genomics Workforce, Education and Ethics'. The PhD scholar will undertake a project aimed at investigating the patient experience of participants of the diagnostic flagships of Australian Genomics. This project would ideally suit a candidate with interest/experience in genetic counselling, ethics, psychology and/or social sciences. The project will use mixed-methods approaches (quantitative and qualitative), and will work with the Program 4 team to develop data collection tools including interview questions and surveys. These tools will be informed by existing literature, expert input and a small sample of initial interviews. The outcomes from the project intend to inform future patient management in genomic medicine.
