PhD Scholarship Opportunity Currently Available

A PhD scholarship funded through the Institute for Safety, Compensation and Recover Research (ISCRR) is available in the Monash Centre for Occupational and Environmental Health.

Work-related injuries and illnesses are a major public health concern. In Australia the direct and indirect costs of work-related injury and illness for 2008-09 has been estimated to be in excess of $60 billion.

The main objectives of this PhD project are to use workers’ compensation data to answer important questions related to the primary prevention of work-related injury and illness in Victoria; and to develop methods to integrate workers’ compensation data with other data sources (e.g. labour market survey information or emergency department data) to examine questions concerning the use of workers’ compensation data for surveillance purposes.

This is a unique opportunity for someone with interests in the primary prevention of work-related injuries and illnesses and the use of administrative data for research purposes.

The candidate will have background in occupational health, public health, epidemiology, biostatistics, medical, or other health or science.
