PhD Scholarship Opportunities

Deakin University was recently awarded funding from the NHMRC to establish a prestigious Centre of Research Excellence (CRE) in Policy Research on Obesity and Food Systems. The aim of the Centre is to reduce the burden of obesity through research on policy actions for creating healthy, sustainable, equitable food systems and reversing obesogenic environments.

The CRE will offer PhD scholarships across a range of cutting edge program areas. Expressions of interest are sought from outstanding potential PhD candidates to join our vibrant national Centre of Research Excellence. PhD programs will begin in 2013 and further information about potential topic areas, supervisors and how to express your interest can be found in the PhD Scholarship Opportunities flyer. (754 KB)
