PhD Scholarship - Supporting Indigenous Smokers to Assist Quitting (SISTAQUIT)



The Centre for Brain and Mental Health Research (CBMHR) and the Wollotuka Institute, based at the University of Newcastle, are looking for PhD candidates to work on the Supporting Indigenous Smokers to Assist Quitting (SISTAQUIT) trial.

The scholarships will be linked to a large National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) funded trial, SISTAQUIT. Smoking during pregnancy has a major impact on the health of the unborn baby, and the research shows that pregnant mothers need better access to evidence-based smoking cessation care. SISTAQUIT will target health providers working with Aboriginal pregnant mothers, to improve how they manage smoking during pregnancy.

There are up to three scholarships available which include living allowance and tuition fees. Research proposals for the scholarships will be negotiated with successful candidates, and may address various health concerns for pregnant Aboriginal women, their families and communities. Suggested topics include:

Applications for this scholarship close Friday 9 March 2018.
