SPHERE is a newly established, NHMRC-funded Centre of Research Excellence in Sexual and Reproductive Health for Women in Primary Care. This is the first dedicated Centre to lead research that is aimed at improving the quality, safety, and capacity of primary health care services to achieve better outcomes in women’s sexual and reproductive health. Based in the Department of General Practice at the Notting Hill campus, SPHERE supports the design and conduct of studies within three areas of women’s sexual and reproductive health: preconception care, contraception, and medical abortion along with a strong focus on health economics. This research program is guided by a team of national and international clinician researchers and experts in women’s health, general practice, pharmacy, nursing, epidemiology, knowledge translation, health economics, and policy development.

We are seeking to recruit motivated Post-doctoral Research Fellows (Level A or Level B) to undertake projects within the contraception and medical abortion streams of the SPHERE Research Program. These projects are aimed at developing innovative ways of improving the delivery and uptake of contraception and medical abortion services within primary care and improving the capacity of primary health care providers to deliver these services. Projects within these two research streams involve both quantitative and qualitative methodologies. The Post-doctoral Research Fellow will also be expected to contribute to the production of research grants, publications and reports; pursue independent collaborative research; and engage with a range of national key stakeholders.

The level of appointment will be dependent on qualifications, experience, and track record.

This is a full-time position but part time hours may be negotiated
