Senior Research Fellow Medical Geography / Spatial Epidemiology - University of Canberra

UofCanberraPOSITION PURPOSE

This position is with the Centre for Research and Action in Public Health (CeRAPH) in the UC-Health Research Institute. The successful candidate will support research projects funded by the Digital Health Cooperative Research Centre DH CRC. https://www.digitalhealthcrc.com/ which was established in 2018 with $220M in funding with over 80 industry partners and 16 universities. The applicant will work with the newly established Australian Geospatial Health Research Lab (AGeo-L), an industry partnership between the University of Canberra and GIS industry world leader Esri to support population research applying spatial epidemiology to understand and prevent chronic disease. AGeo-L enables the elucidation of built, social, natural and physical environmental factors to be targeted by policy and practice-level innovations to reduce risk factors and treatment costs arising from obesity, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and cancers. Such work involves geospatial modelling with inferential, multi-level analyses assessing environmental features together with individual risk factors (diet, physical activity, alcohol, smoking, clinical measures, biomarkers and disease outcomes) as these vary over time and change in response to policy, and public health and practice-based intervention. Predictive modelling informs the depiction of high-priority target areas and provides stakeholders indispensable decision-making tools for the planning of public health policy and practice interventions.
