PhD scholarship opportunity

Published: Monday 8th August 2016

The NHRMC Centre of Research Excellence in Cerebral Palsy (CRE-CP) is a five-year funded project that brings together leading researchers and clinicians from across Australia and internationally. The multi-faceted research program involves a range of clinical trials, systematic reviews and the implementation of evidence-based care into practice.

The CRE-CP is offering an exciting PhD scholarship opportunity situated across a range of research programs, led by Professor Christine Imms, Director of the Centre for Disability and Development Research (CeDDR) at the Australian Catholic University. This is a fantastic chance to be a part of a great research team working with international collaborators on ground-breaking research.

The PhD project will be positioned within the Mental Health and Participation stream of research; specifically in optimising participation outcomes for people with cerebral palsy.

A number of PhD projects are possible within this body of work. Potential topics include:

  • Measurement of the involvement (or activity engagement) aspect of participation
  • Evaluation of new interventions that are designed to promote participation
  • Testing of specific relationships between person, activity, and environment factors that explain participation
  • Evaluation of participation interventions across levels of the framework (from basic cognitive processes to the broader environment).For further information and to apply, visit the CRE-CP website.
