Doctoral projects will be part of the larger NHMRC funded PREBO-6 prospective cohort study involving advanced neuroimaging and neurodevelopmental assessment of children born prematurely. Please read our recent publication describing the PREBO-6 study protocol. Potential candidates will have a strong interest in clinical research in the field of paediatrics and particularly in neonatal and developmental medicine and neuroscience. The successful candidate will belong to a highly productive multidisciplinary research environment that has strong collaborations across Australia, India, New Zealand, and USA. Doctoral training from the highly ranked Faculty of Medicine at The University of Queensland will be an ideal opportunity for medical and non-medical graduates from related healthcare fields (e.g., health science, neuroscience, nursing, physiotherapy/physical therapy, psychology, and/or public health) who are planning for an academic and/or clinical research career.
