PhD opportunity in General Practice

Exciting research opportunities exist with a newly-funded NHMRC Centre for Research Excellence: The National Centre for Antimicrobial Stewardship (NCAS). The NCAS will take a “One Health” approach to examining antimicrobial use in animal and human health.

The Centre is based in the new Peter Doherty Institute, Carlton, Victoria and will partner with members of the Institute including the Melbourne Health Antimicrobial Research Group, Guidance, VICNISS and MDU; the Faculty of Veterinary Science, University of Melbourne; Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Monash University; Department of General Practice, Monash University; and the NSW Centre for Clinical Excellence.

As part of the research program examining antibiotic prescribing in the community and in general practice, a PhD scholarship is being offered at the Department of General Practice, Monash University for a candidate to complete a PhD examining antibiotic prescribing practices within the general practice setting. The doctoral program will utilise a mixed methods approach that will include quantitative analysis of general practice data and qualitative interviews with GPs, with the aim of examining the patterns of antibiotic use and adherence to guidelines in general practice and improving our understanding of the factors that influence antibiotic prescribing in this setting. The scholarship is on a full-time basis for three years.

All interested applicants will be required to submit a CV with 2 – 3 referees and transcripts of academic records.
