Role Title: Research Assistant Intern
Organisation: UWA Social Care and Ageing Living Lab
Internship Period: Winter (June - July)
The UWA Living Lab has been engaged by the WA Department of Communities to conduct research into responses to the abuse of older people (elder abuse) in Western Australia. This research is being conducted in partnership with research collaborators at the Northern Suburbs Community Legal Centre Older People’s Rights Service.
This one-year project is concluding in July / August of 2021. This internship offers an exciting opportunity to be part of the final reporting of findings to key stakeholders. The intern will analyse research and contribute to written research outputs. This will include reviewing and analysing interview, focus group and survey data; drafting and editing sections of the final report; literature review and reference management.
The SAGE Lab focuses on developing and evaluating the role of technology in creating and supporting the social connection and inclusion of older people, across both residential and community living, including promoting digital citizenship.
