There are likely to be a number of new positions associated with the Program, some will become available as some of the clinical trials and associated laboratory studies begin.
As part of the Program we will train PhD and Honours students through University of New South Wales academic programs and those of other universities, and we will provide strong mentorship for postdoctoral researchers. As one element in the program is the breadth of research, from laboratory work to implementation of practice guidelines, we will offer deliberate exposure to a range of clinical and experimental work to train the next generation of medical researchers. The investigators will establish a strong interdisciplinary culture to maximise the outcomes from the work.
