Research Training and Research Student Placements
The Centre for Adolescent Health hosts both local and
international research students and researchers. Placements can be for variable
periods through honorary academic appointments within the Murdoch Children’s
Research Institute or the University of Melbourne.
Research placements provide an opportunity to work with
world leaders in adolescent health; access to various research platforms (e.g.
domestic cohort studies, global health metrics, clinical studies); and training
in various research methods (see the list below).
We do not offer research scholarships to international students,
although scholarships may be available through the University of Melbourne or national
funding schemes. We can provide letters of support to accompany
applications for scholarships and fellowships in other countries.
Please contact the research manager if you are
interested in spending time with the Centre.
