Our research and engagement strategy is focused on making a real impact on some of the world’s most pressing health challenges. Our major research and engagement themes are: health promotion; climate change and environmental health; mental health; blood borne viruses; women’s health; and, health systems.

Centre of Research Excellence on Women and Non-communicable Disease: Prevention and Detection (CRE WaND)

Non-communicable diseases (NCD) – such as cardiovascular disease, cancers, and respiratory conditions – are now leading causes of mortality and morbidity among women. Many of the established risk factors for NCDs are shared with poor reproductive outcomes and emerging evidence also points to the impact of reproductive factors, such as pregnancy complications, on NCD risk. CRE WaND, funded by the NHMRC, examines the current risks of NCDs across women’s life, evaluates women’s current related use of health services, and models future health service use, in order to develop targeted strategies and guidelines for radical improvements in prevention and detection of NCDs among women.

About This Opportunity

This position is located at the University of Queensland's Herston campus and involves collaborating with Centre of Research Excellence on Women and Non-communicable Disease (CRE WaND). The purpose of the role is to conduct systematic investigation into the associations of established and emerging risk factors, at each stage of women’s lives, with non-communicable disease (NCD) incidence, including multimorbidity.
