WHO Collaborating Centre for Obesity Prevention

Working and studying with us

In the field of obesity prevention there are few research groups with comparable quantity, quality and breadth and impact of the WHO Collaborating Centre for Obesity Prevention.

Our plans for continued growth will allow our team of researchers to develop and deliver tangible outcomes with broad public impact. The work across the programs is inter-linked with strong cross-disciplinary support for methods innovations such as knowledge exchange, systems research and dynamic simulation modelling.

Research degrees
The two types of research degree available within this field are the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) and Masters Degree by Research.

Our centre aims to generate a critical mass of research activities, which will attract high calibre PhD students, post-doctoral candidates and research fellows. By building on existing collaborations we will work to convert future funding opportunities into major international studies. This includes securing in-country sponsors for top students to enrol with Deakin, spending most of their time in-country with Deakin staff visiting as supervisors.

Information on Research Degree application requirements for the Faculty of Health, of which the WHO Collaborating Centre for Obesity Prevention is part, are available on the Faculty's website. The Deakin University website also provides detailed information on the benefits of studying at Deakin.
