University of Adelaide Research Scholarship – The Hospital Research Foundation Group Statewide Palliative Care Grant Scheme – School of Public Health

Updated: about 18 hours ago
Location: Adelaide, SOUTH AUSTRALIA
Deadline: 30 Sep 2022

The Hospital Research Foundation Group Palliative Care University of Adelaide Scholarship is established by The Hospital Research Foundation with The University of Adelaide to support a full-time PhD student who is undertaking research examining culturally and linguistically diverse experiences and perspectives of end-of-life care.

Approximately 26% of Australians were born overseas, and almost 40% of migrants from non-English speaking countries are aged 50+years. However, individuals from such backgrounds face substantial barriers that limit access to appropriate palliative and end-of-life care. The project will focus on three specific populations: Italian, Vietnamese, and Indian communities.


Applicants must be Australian citizens or permanent residents of Australia who are acceptable as candidates for a PhD degree at the University of Adelaide. The successful candidate is expected to commence study in early 2023.

Desired criteria: Previous experience in qualitative and/or mixed methods research and/or critical enquiry and/or community-engagement and/or public health.


The scholarship will be for four years and has a stipend of $28,854 (2022 rate, indexed annually) per annum. It is likely to be tax exempt, subject to Taxation Office approval.  Details of any terms and/or benefits can be found in the Conditions of Award .
