Opportunities exist for talented and aspiring postgraduate students to work with the leaders of the QUT Improving Health Outcomes for People research group. Our team has established a dynamic program of research in cancer prevention, early detection and survivorship that includes several postgraduate (PhD and Masters) students, post-doctoral fellows, as well as early and mid-career Research Fellows. Opportunities also exist for building links with national and international researchers who are involved in similar research.
Please feel free to contact the QUT Improving Health Outcomes for People research group (via the contact page) to discuss ways in which you may develop a suitably scoped higher research degree project that may be integrated into our research areas.
