Live the tropical life: PhD and honours study opportunities in Darwin

Take up the opportunity of a lifetime, and come and study at Menzies School of Health Research.

Evan McRobb is a 23-year old from Townsville.  He moved to Darwin early 2011 to start a PhD at Menzies studying Burkholderia pseudomallei, the causative agent of melioidosis.  His objective is to use new generation technologies to understand the diversity of B. pseudomallei.

In his first year, his supervisors (Mirjam Kaestli, Erin Price and Bart Currie) sent him to the Keim Lab in Flagstaff, Arizona, for three months to study bioinformatic analyses essential for his PhD studies.
"I had an amazing experience and learned so much during my stay, including discussing various research topics with world leaders," said Evan.

Set in the beautiful Northern Territory, the Menzies School of Health Research offers opportunities to study in a PhD, Masters by Research or Honours program.

Our research areas include child health, preventable chronic diseases, healing and resilience, service systems and society, international health and tropical and emerging infectious diseases. We also teach public health at post-graduate level with speciality streams in Indigenous Health, Global Health and Public Health Practice. You can also study online from any location in Australia or the world.

We have 36 new PhD, Masters and Honours opportunities in many disciplines for our 2013 intake at our national and international sites. Generous scholarships are available through Charles Darwin University.  The closing dates are 31 October 2012 for domestic and 30 September 2012 for international.
