Overview

ECU will play a key role in a world-first National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Centre for Research Excellence (CRE) in Prostate Cancer Survivorship.

More than 10 Australian men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every hour and around 200,000 Australian men are living with prostate cancer today. The Centre for Research Excellence will translate research into action across four main themes for the benefit of men diagnosed. The themes include exercise medicine, psychosocial and psychosexual health, the economic costs of prostate cancer and geographic inequalities in prostate cancer outcomes.

The Exercise Medicine Research Institute has a successful and expanding research group focusing on the role of exercise in the prevention and management of chronic disease, encompassing outcomes relating to functional, physiological, cardiometabolic and psychosocial health. We have excellent facilities and extensive research activities in a collaborative and collegial working environment. For the past ten years, we have been at the forefront of research examining how exercise acts as a medicine to improve the lives of men with prostate cancer. Our reputation in exercise and cancer research is internationally recognised.

The successful applicant will work in conjunction with our CRE collaborators from Griffith University, Cancer Council Queensland, Cancer Council NSW, Monash University, University of Adelaide and the University of Queensland.

All ECU employees also demonstrate personal attributes that are congruent with the University’s values of Integrity, Respect, Rational Inquiry and Personal Excellence.
