Centre of Research Excellence on Achieving the Tobacco Endgame - Examination of Policies to End Smoking in Australia

This Earmarked Scholarship project is aligned with a recently awarded Category 1 research grant. It offers you the opportunity to work with leading researchers and contribute to large projects of national significance.

Supervisor – Associate Professor Coral Gartnerc.gartner@uq.edu.au

Our research centre has multiple topics available for projects related to our program of research on accelerating the decline in smoking in Australia. There are four scholarship opportunities related to this project, and the exact topic will be determined in consultation with the four selected applicants. You can read about our Research program here.

The types of research projects includes qualitative and quantitative research on stakeholder views on a range of possible policy options, policy analysis, epidemiological studies including simulation modelling studies, behaviour change interventions, product regulation and legal analysis.

CREATE’s ambitious goal is to determine the optimal mix of strategies that will help Australia become a smoke-free nation and produce a roadmap outlining how to implement these strategies while mitigating potential unintended impacts and increasing equity.

An additional top-up scholarship of $5,000 per annum may be available for exceptional applicants.

Preferred educational background

Applications will be judged on a competitive basis taking into account the applicant's previous academic record, publication record, honours and awards, and employment history.

A working knowledge of tobacco control policy would be of benefit to someone working on this project.

The applicant will demonstrate academic achievement in the field(s) of public health, psychology, law, or a related field and the potential for scholastic success.

A background or knowledge of health policy is highly desirable.
