The School of Commerce at the University of Southern Queensland (USQ), Australia is offering two USQ Research Training Program (RTP), Health Economics PhD scholarships to carry out research that will contribute to the health economics program of the Applied Economics and Policy Analysis research group.
The health economics program is focused on the application of economic theory to problems of non-communicable diseases and the development of innovative policy interventions. Topic areas of interest include cardiovascular disease, obesity and diabetes, chronic disease management, mental health, cancer as well as ageing generally. A particular focus is on regional and remote areas in line with our links with the Health and Wellbeing program within the Institute for Resilient Regions (IRR). The IRR is one of three USQ research institutes.
