Research Role:

We seek a postdoctoral or experienced Masters-level public health researcher to join the research team on an NHMRC-funded grant investigating the Burden of Rheumatic Heart Disease (RHD) in Australia. Our research focus is on the epidemiology of RHD in Australia, health service utilisation and costs, as well as factors influencing the capacity of the health system to implement proven strategies for RHD across the prevention spectrum. The quantitative component of the study predominantly draws on linked hospital, mortality and RHD register data from multiple Australian jurisdictions. The project is aligned to the End RHD Centre for Research Excellence, with the data directly contributing to policy recommendations, based on empirical and modelled evidence, about the optimal composition and mix of interventions to achieve disease control.
