Student supervision & placements

What can CBRC offer university students?

The Centre for Behavioural Research in Cancer (CBRC) offers post-graduate supervision and placements to selected University students, in conjunction with University departments.

Each year a few students are chosen to participate in our research as part of their academic studies. These students undertake research on issues relating to priority areas:

  • smoking;
  • skin cancer;
  • breast cancer;
  • cervical cancer;
  • prostate cancer;
  • bowel cancer; and
  • research with patients.

Supervision is also offered in the 3 emerging priority areas of media, nutrition and genetic risk communication.

To be eligible students will be completing an Honours year in BA, BSc or Communication Studies, majoring in psychology, sociology or health sciences. Those completing a Master's Degree or PhD in these disciplines or in public health may also be considered.

Students wanting more information about thesis supervision or a placement at CBRC should contact the Faculty coordinator at their University.
