- About Deakin
Deakin University, Alfred Deakin Research Institute (ADRI), is currently inviting outstanding candidates to apply for a PhD scholarship to be undertaken as part of an Australian Research Council (ARC) project.
Using longitudinal techniques and social determinants of health approach this project will investigate the trajectories of changes in health and the factors that moderate or otherwise influence those changes over time among Foreign-born (FB) relative to Native-born (NB) in Australia. Longitudinal studies with repeated measures on the same individuals have important advantages over repeated cross-sectional studies. In particular they are a useful tool for determining the causal relationship between migration and health.
Aim of the project

The project and scholarship offers the opportunity to learn about and gain experience in data handling, analysis and publication of large-scale epidemiological studies.
The 2012 scholarship rate is $23,728AUD per annum. International students will receive funding for tuition fees for the duration of the scholarship.
