Project Description:Funded through the Australian government’s Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF), Griffith University’s School of Applied Psychology is working in partnership with USQ’s Centre for Health, Informatics and Economic Research to lead a societally impactful research program that aims to translate knowledge about evidence-based psychological practice (regarding the prevention, detection, diagnosis, treatment and recovery of mental health conditions) into affordable, digital solutions for young people aged 7 to 17 years. This project involves working in collaboration with partnering universities including the University of Queensland, Queensland University of Technology, Australian National University and Federation University, as well as partnering government (e.g. West Moreton Hospital and Health Service, Darling Downs and West Moreton Primary Health Network) and non-government organisations (e.g. Kids Helpline and Aftercare/Poppy Centre). The opportunity: Griffith University is currently looking to fund a research-only PhD candidate to contribute to a large-scale randomised control trial (RCT) examining the efficacy of an online, tailored intervention, that aims to treat symptoms of anxiety and/or depression amongst youth aged 7-17 years. This project includes opportunities to answer additional research questions relating to the mechanisms that may contribute to treatment outcomes in youth, and the methods that may improve treatment success among digital mental health users. In collaboration with the various team members and supervisors, successful candidates will be given the opportunity to develop their project aims in line with their individual experience and interests. This project will allow the candidate to develop his/her capabilities as a researcher and support them in contributing to research that makes a substantial difference in the lives of young people struggling with anxiety and depression. In doing so, the research team aims to help the candidate to develop a program of research that will ultimately result in publications within high impact Q1 journals and have meaningful impact and standing within the research community. This is a unique opportunity for potential PhD students interested in the area of child and youth mental health and digital mental health service provision. Opportunities will be provided to collaborate with world-renowned researchers across Australia’s leading universities, to develop the successful applicant’s early career research profile, and to gain access to a wide range of formal and informal mentoring and team development opportunities.
Funding InformationThe 2021 Griffith University Postgraduate Research Scholarship has an annual stipend of $ 28,597 AUD for a period of up to three years of full-time study. Please see the GUPRS Conditions of Award for more information. A successful International applicant will also be awarded a Griffith University International Postgraduate Research Scholarship to cover tuition fees for up to three years. Please see the GUIPRS Conditions of Award for more information.

To be successful within this role, you will be able to work autonomously as well as within a team, demonstrate excellent communication and written skills, be highly motivated with a strong work ethic, and demonstrate evidence of critical and applied thinking skills. You will have evidence of a passion for improving child and adolescent mental health outcomes at the population level, with a strong desire to undertake research in digital mental health and youth mental health. Eligibility requirements: This scholarship is open to domestic and international applicants. Please note that due to travel restrictions, only applicants who can commence onshore or with an approved study away are able to apply for this scholarship. Applicants must have completed, or expect to complete, a bachelor’s degree with first-class honours or a master’s degree, incorporating a significant research component (e.g. half an academic year from a recognised institution); or A record of research (i.e. publications in refereed journals); or A qualification granted by a professional or other body deemed by the Dean, Griffith Graduate Research School, to be of a standard comparable to a bachelor’s degree with first-class honours.

Grundlegendes zum Schwerpunkt Medizin, Gesundheitswissenschaften & Psychologie

Forschung in den Gesundheits- und Medizinwissenschaften und der Psychologie stellt das physische und mentale Wohlbefinden des Menschen in den Mittelpunkt. Ziel ist es, neue und innovative Wege zu finden, Krankheiten zu identifizieren, zu heilen und zu verhindern und eine Bereitstellung von effizienten Gesundheitsdiensten zu gewährleisten. Die Frage, wie Gesellschaften die Gesundheit und Gesundheitsversorgung ihrer Bevölkerung sichern, wird im Zuge der aktuellen globalen Veränderungen immer wichtiger. Mit seinen grundlegenden Fragestellungen gehört dieser Forschungsbereich zu den neun nationalen „Research Priorities“ in Australien. Mit renommierten internationalen Forschungspartnern setzen sich die australischen Universitäten darüber hinaus für die Lösung globaler gesundheitswissenschaftlicher Herausforderungen ein. 

Bitte beachten

Medizinstudierende, die sich für ein PhD-Programm in Australien bewerben wollen, brauchen einen Nachweis über substantielle Forschungserfahrung während ihres Studiums. Dieser Nachweis kann auch durch die deutsche Doktorarbeit erbracht werden.
