New Monash University PhD scholarship opportunity to work in men’s health

The Australian Institute of Family Studies, which leads the Ten to Men Australian Longitudinal Study on Male Health, is supporting a PhD scholarship opportunity to join leading health economists at Monash University and make a difference to men’s health.

The newly created Health Economics PhD scholarship will apply advanced health economic and econometric techniques to large national data from the Ten to Men study to answer important health and social policy questions.

Ten to Men is a national research initiative undertaken by the AIFS, the Australian Government’s key independent research body and advisor on family wellbeing.

Ten to Men began in 2013 and strives to survey the same group of males every few years, from the age of 10 and through different stages of life, in order to provide insights on male health that can be used to improve programs, services and policies for all Australian boys and men.

Topics include: the mental health of Australian males, alcohol use, overweight and obesity, health literacy and health service use, gambling participation and illicit substance use.

View key research findings from Insights #1 report and Insights #2.

The successful PhD candidate will undertake a research placement at AIFS. The scholarship will cover tuition fees at the Centre for Health Economics at Monash University and a tax-free stipend of between AU$35,000 and AU$49,000 per annum and have opportunities for funded travel to attend conferences for the duration of the scholarship, three and a half years.

The scholarship is open to domestic students only, with a strong research background in relevant disciplines and a demonstrated interest in the relationship between social and economic factors and health. They will also come with an excellent academic track record obtained from a four-year honour’s degree or a two-year master’s degree, with a strong research component.

Expressions of Interest applications close on 26th November 2023.
