You will have completed a PhD within a discipline that is relevant to the area of clinical health science and have embarked on successfully undertaking high-quality research in the area of musculoskeletal health. You will have developed innovative and impactful approaches to teaching in both the classroom and online learning environments connecting discovery with curriculum. Your collaborative approach to working with others will ensure you perform effectively within an inter-disciplinary and international environment.
