The time is right to pursue higher degree research in disability and rehabilitation with the Hopkins Centre.  We have a number of Griffith University PhD Scholarships available and are actively looking for professionals and graduates wanting to make a valuable contribution to social change in this field of research.

The time is right because the World Health Organisation (WHO) is demanding urgent action to lift rehabilitation services globally, to not only improve patient’s lives, but to save money.  This international call to action is focussed on scaling up rehabilitation to achieve value for money.  Our governments are also focussed on scalability and efficiency prioritising the need for the quantification of ideas, access to linked and interdependent data and evidence to ensure robust decision are made.  The National Injury Insurance Scheme Queensland (NIISQ) and National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) are also key drivers of Hopkins strategic research agenda in Queensland.  

As a one-stop-shop for rehabilitation and disability research in Queensland, The Hopkins Centre is delivering timely new knowledge and effective ways of working with practitioners and citizens in service settings.  Our research is focussed on real outcomes for all people, their families and our community to ensure (something about a disability doesn’t mean you miss out on life’s essentials).  We are also firmly committed to large scale, partnership opportunities that will transform lives through personalised technologies, rehabilitative natural and built environments and big data solutions.
