First Nations Fellow

Cancer Council Australia’s mission is to lead a cohesive approach to reduce the impact of cancer. Our current strategic plan has a strong focus on reducing inequalities in cancer, including working with Australia’s First Nations Peoples to co-design cancer control policy and together improve cancer outcomes.

In working to achieve this goal we have partnered with the Charles Perkins Centre at the University of Sydney to host a Fellowship Program that supports talented early to mid career researchers and health professionals to develop their project management and policy skills, gain valuable industry experience with Australia’s leading cancer charity and have the opportunity to shape cancer control policy and programs for First Nations Peoples.
The successful candidate for this role will be a self-motivated and committed individual with a track record of connection to, influence with and standing in First Nations communities and public policy or service provision.
The position will be hosted by the Charles Perkins Centre at The University of Sydney, and embedded in one or more of the following where the incumbent will be provided structured mentoring and support:

              • Charles Perkins Centre research and education hub
              • DVC Indigenous Strategy and Services Portfolio
              • Faculty of Medicine and Health
              • Poche Centre for Indigenous Health
              • Sydney Policy Lab

The position will be part time at 0.2 FTE with flexibility regarding when these hours are worked and is intended to be part of a team of up to three First Nations Fellows. Fellows will work on both independent and collaborative initiatives; developing policies and programs designed to improve cancer outcomes for First Nations peoples, supporting the development of collaborative relationships and joint activities between Cancer Council Australia and First Nations organisations (particularly peak bodies and community controlled health organisations), and progressing Cancer Council Australia’s key focus on addressing inequalities in cancer outcomes. It is envisaged that all Fellows will have the opportunity to develop their policy and program leadership capacity and build on their prior clinical or research experiences.
This is an identified Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander position.

The tenure of the position will be from 1-3 years depending on the circumstance of the applicant(s).
