The CVD Implementation team seeks to improve the prevention of chronic diseases for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Our small and motivated team works with organisations and governments across Australia to improve chronic disease prevention and health policy, using a community- focussed and strengths-based approach that emphasizes First Nation’s leadership, knowledge and expertise.
Our implementation efforts are underpinned by extensive engagement and a collaborative approach.
Our team works with researchers from across the ANU College of Health and Medicine including the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Program, Epidemiology for Policy and Practice Group and Academic Unit of General Practice.
The postdoctoral fellow as part of the CVD implementation team, will explore the development of novel methods for early identification and management of chronic disease in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander populations through community-based implementation projects.
The intervention will be informed by the findings of the Study of Environment on Aboriginal Resilience and Child Health (SEARCH), and focus on early life course factors contributing to health and wellbeing.
The Research Fellow will co-design and implement a holistic intervention with health services and communities focusing on CVD risk assessment and management for young adults.
They will conduct research focussed on community-based implementation strategies to improve the health and well-being of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, encompassing the social and cultural determinants of health and chronic disease risk.
As part of the team, the research fellow will engage with a range of stakeholders to carry out research, disseminate findings and contribute to health policy. Findings from this work will use community input and experiences to shape policy approaches to chronic disease prevention for First Nation’s people.
Whilst tertiary qualifications in population health and related fields are highly regarded, a PhD or Masters is not a pre-requisite; candidates with equivalent employment experience in the fields of health services and public health are encouraged to apply. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.
