PhD Research opportunity August 2016
The Royal Women’s Hospital and Murdoch Children’s Research Institute at the Royal Children’s Hospital are seeking a PhD student to join their team on a project focussed on the mental health and psychosocial outcomes of young people who were born extremely prematurely. Extreme prematurity is a risk factor for a range of adverse outcomes, but very few studies have followed these children into adulthood. We are now following up a cohort of young people aged 25 who have been part of this study since they were born. There is also a large amount of longitudinal data, including previous mental health assessment and MRI data, giving plenty of scope for interested students to select their research question.
