Menzies School of Health Research (Menzies) is one of Australia’s leading medical research institutes dedicated to improving Indigenous, global and tropical health. Menzies has a history of over 30 years of scientific discovery and public health achievement. Menzies works at the frontline, joining with partners across the Asia-Pacific as well as Indigenous communities across northern and central Australia.
The Global and Tropical Health (GTH) Division is committed to tackling key areas of public health concern that impact on the health and wellbeing of people and communities across northern Australia and the Asia-Pacific region. With a focus on translational research we shape our research program through close collaboration with a diverse range of healthcare providers, policy makers and researchers, to target priority health issues. Our aim is to find meaningful and relevant ways to improve the health of people in our region.
The Tuberculosis (TB) group within GTH has been undertaking research with regional partners for more than a decade. We are seeking a postdoctoral researcher with expertise in clinical tuberculosis research and knowledge of TB in the region, to join the Menzies TB group. The postdoctoral researcher will implement studies on TB epidemiology and health system strengthening in Malaysia and Indonesia, supervise higher degree research students and project staff, contribute to the development of new projects and grants, and foster collaborative research within Menzies and with external parties.
