PHD Scholarship Opportunity

This Earmarked Scholarship project offers you the opportunity to work with leading researchers and contribute to large projects of national significance.

This PhD project will be part of an NHMRC MRFF Dementia, Aging and Aged Care Mission funded study, which aims to develop and implement a new technology-assisted intervention, PDCogniCare, for early and improved diagnosis of dementia in people living with Parkinson’s Disease (PD).

Informed by Medical Research Council guidance for process evaluation, a mixed methods approach will be used to understand factors influencing the use of the digital platform, delivery of cognitive assessments, and acceptability of PDCogniCare.  This project would suit someone with a background in technology and software development, business studies, policy, and an interest in improving healthcare service delivery.
