The Centre for Developmental Psychiatry and Psychology is seeking talented students to undertake PhD studies in an exciting project beginning in 2013.
The project will be part of a large NHMRC funded Program Grant, Mental Health of Young People with Developmental Disabilities. This is a collaborative program of research across Monash University, the University of Sydney, and the University of Queensland. One of the core aims of this research program is to evaluate the effectiveness of a parent training intervention to address behaviour and emotional problems in children with developmental disabilities (Stepping Stone Triple P) across three states. A core requirement is a first class Honours degree (or equivalent) in psychology. Students will be expected to be eligible for an Australian Postgraduate Award (APA) or a Monash Graduate Scholarship (MGS). A top up of this scholarship will be negotiated with the successful applicant.
A further PhD opportunity is also available. A project evaluating the implementation of the Schools: Early Action Program (CASEA) in the Southern Health region of Melbourne. CASEA is a multilevel prevention and early intervention program developed to reduce the incidence and impact of Conduct Disorder. This is joint project with the Southern Health Early in Life Mental Health Service.
