PhD Scholarships in nutrition and population health
The Centre for Nutrition, Lifestyle and
Clinical Trials Research is looking for outstanding applicants who are
interested in pursuing a PhD in the area of nutrition and human health. The
research will investigate the importance of specific components present in
foods for vascular health.
Increasing the intake of
fruits, vegetables and whole grains remains the foundation of dietary
approaches to prevent vascular disease. However, surprisingly little is
known about the components of these foods that contribute to vascular
health, or the mechanisms involved.
Identifying these specific components and mechanisms will improve targeted dietary approaches to enhance vascular health.
The Centre for Nutrition, Lifestyle and Clinical Trials Research includes internationally recognised medical and scientific researchers investigating how diet and lifestyle prevent or reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, high blood pressure and other outcomes related to vascular health. The research is led by Edith Cowan University, in collaboration with University of Western Australia, University of Sydney, and University of Adelaide. The projects available are supported by grants from the NHMRC and industry.
have a high level of achievement, including an honours degree or
equivalent. The degree could be in a range of relevant fields, such as
nutrition, biological sciences, epidemiology,
public health, health sciences or medicine. Applicants should also have a strong interest in human nutrition. Applications are open to Australian and New Zealand citizens and permanent residents.
Applicants will be expected to apply for scholarships ($30,000+ per year) offered through Edith Cowan University and University of Western Australia.
