Your previous experience and expertise in supervising and successfully working with research staff and students will be essential to this role. Your ability, relative to experience, in statistical analysis, manuscript preparation, research proposal preparation, and demonstrated experience in previous refereed research publications will be utilised as you will support the achievement of the project’s research objectives.
