As the Research Assistant and Indigenous Cultural Liaison you will provide high level support on the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Global Alliance Chronic Disease funded research trial: Indigenous Counselling and Nicotine (ICAN) QUIT in Pregnancy.

The project addresses an issue of utmost importance to public health – tobacco smoking in pregnant Indigenous women. By addressing smoking among Indigenous women during pregnancy, a single intervention could help prevent disease in two people – mother and child – and make significant inroads into tackling the health disparity between Indigenous and non-Indigenous populations. ICAN Quit in Pregnancy is designed to increase smoking cessation rates among expectant Indigenous mothers, by providing training and feedback for healthcare providers at Aboriginal Medical Services in the delivery of culturally competent evidence-based smoking cessation care.

Key responsibilities include:

  • managing the Indigenous cultural liaison for the cluster randomised controlled trial;
  • conducting Aboriginal Community consultations with Aboriginal Medical Services and their community members and relevant boards, liaising with peak Aboriginal Health Bodies, and relevant organisations;
  • assisting with the recruitment of study sites;
  • making site visits to Aboriginal Medical Services and other services; and
  • assisting with data analysis, project reports, publications, budgetary responsibility, and the development of resources to support study implementation.

This position is offered on a full-time (part-time may be considered), three year fixed term basis.

Skills and experience

To be successful in this position you will have:

  • a degree in Psychology or Health or similar, with subsequent relevant experience; or an equivalent combination of relevant experience and/or education/training;
  • female gender as the position concerns predominantly sensitive Indigenous ‘women’s business’;
  • experience and track record in research/work on research projects;
  • demonstrated ability to build external partnerships to achieve common goals and positive outcomes for the University.
  • demonstrated high-level oral and written communication skills, including the ability to facilitate presentations and/or training sessions.
