QUT’s Australian Centre for Health Law Research is offering 2 new PhD Scholarships. The PhDs are part of an Australian Research Council Future Fellowship project which explores the regulation of voluntary assisted dying as a new and important aspect of end-of-life decision-making in Australia.

The project includes comparative case studies of regulation in Canada and Belgium (where voluntary assisted dying has been lawful for longer periods). It is intended that the PhD candidates would work on these international case studies but there will also be exposure to the wider project. More information about the project and research team are available here: https://research.qut.edu.au/voluntary-assisted-dying-regulation/. The project is an interdisciplinary one. Although based in the Law Faculty, applications will be considered from other disciplines including regulation, social science, bioethics and health/public policy.
