Summary We offer a unique opportunity to learn advanced meta-analysis techniques and lead high impact work that changes clinical practice. Location is flexible.

Project Details

Our group is a world leader in research synthesis of cognitive interventions across the lifespan and brain disorders. Using large datasets from hundreds of clinical trials, we use cutting-edge meta-analysis techniques to identify the active ingredients and core components of interventions, and define the most effective intervention and treatment strategies for different populations of individuals. We produce robust evidence and high-impact publications that that have influenced changes in both policy and clinical practice.

Our group offers a range of projects (Honours to PhD), with a particular interest in ageing (older adult populations), neurodegenerative disorders (e.g., multiple sclerosis), psychiatric disorders (e.g., depression) and cancer. The ideal candidate will have exceptional attention to detail, strong work ethic and background in psychology, medicine or clinical fields (e.g., exercise physiology). Candidates with statistics or programming background and a passion for clinical research is desired, however training will be provided to the right candidate.

We are an international group with diverse academic backgrounds and will consider meta-analysis projects of other interventions and clinical fields. We will accommodate flexible location and work arrangements.
