PhD Scholarship Available! 

Psychometric Development of a Novel Multidimensional Body Image Measure

The School of Medicine at Western Sydney University are offering a research scholarship to a highly motivated PhD candidate to work with eating disorder researchers on a project to develop a novel multidimensional measure of body image. The project is partly supported by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC). This project will involve development of a standardised measure to assess multi-dimensional facets of body image. The successful candidate will have input into the scope and aims of the PhD, working with the supervisory panel. Specific steps in this process may include a literature review, development of the psychometric methodological protocol; item development, testing and validation using population- and community-based samples; and testing of clinical validity and development of cut-off scores in clinical treatment-seeking samples. This project has the potential to greatly advance the field of eating disorders by providing a tool for researchers to better understand the development, burden, and clinical significance of body image disturbance. The successful candidate will be supervised by leading Australian eating disorder and body image researchers (Dr Deb Mitchison, Prof Phillipa Hay, Medicine, Western Sydney University; Dr Scott Griffiths, Psychology, University of Melbourne) and work alongside other HDR candidates and research assistants.
Benefits: tax-free stipend of $30,000 per annum for up to 3 years
Supervisors: Phillipa Hay, Deb Mitchison. Applications close 30th April
