Advancing women in healthcare leadership

* Multiple domestic scholarships available with top ups to start 2021 * Potential for international scholarships for highly competitive students Women now make up the majority of health and biomedical research graduates. Yet there is a leaky pipeline and women are underrepresented in positions of leadership in healthcare and health and medical research. We hold a national NHMRC grant on advancing women in healthcare and health related research leadership with partners across health services, state and federal government and Professional Colleges. This work bridges Australia and the UK with opportunities to work in Australia or across both countries. This project focuses on systematic literature review, stakeholder engagement, qualitative interviews, survey and epidemiological data analysis, intervention codesign, implementation and evaluation. Leadership and mentoring will be provided, expertise in the field gained and research skills in evidence synthesis, quantitative and qualitative research along with implementation research. You would join a dynamic team from a range of fields across medicine, nursing, allied health, leadership, organisational change, business and management. Scholarships and top ups are available for research in Australia and for joint research across Australia snd the UK through the Monash Warwick Alliance.
