PhD opportunity focussing on cancer survivorship

An exciting opportunity exists for a suitably qualified applicant to undertake a PhD focussing on cancer survivorship.

The aim of this PhD project is to develop an evidence-based, state-wide quality framework for survivorship care.

This project will be supported by the Australian Cancer Survivorship Centre, a Richard Pratt legacy (ACSC). The ACSC is a unique service based at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre. Our vision is to optimise the health and wellbeing of cancer survivors and their carers.

The successful applicant will receive a PhD scholarship of $30,000 p.a. tax free (up to 3 years), plus up to $8,500 to support the research and $1,500 for interstate relocation. This scholarship is funded by the Victorian Government. A/Prof Michael Jefford (medical oncologist and Director of ACSC) will be the principal supervisor.
