PhD Scholarships in Device Engineering, Electron Beam Chemistry and Nanophotonics.
The new Initiative for Biomedical Materials & Devices (IBMD) at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) is offering three PhD research scholarships to outstanding candidates to work on interdisciplinary, transformational research with a direct path to commercialisation.
The IBMD will transform PhD students and early career researchers into highly skilled professionals in the broad fields of biomedical devices and analytical instrumentation, and in the development of new analytical reagents and techniques for early diagnostics, sensing, biomedical imaging and targeted drug discovery.
The PhD scholarships (tuition fee scholarship, plus a living allowance scholarship of $26,000 p.a. tax free) are open to domestic or international candidates for full-time study of three years.
A successful candidate should demonstrate a strong background in research for one or more fields that include:
- material sciences
- sensors and devices
- electron microscopy
- have completed a Bachelor Degree with First Class Honours or Second Class Honours (Division 1), or be regarded by the University as having an equivalent level of attainment
- be undertaking a higher degree by research at UTS in the year of the scholarship
- be enrolled as a full-time student.
Applicants for the scholarship must also apply to be admitted to the PhD degree at UTS, as per the application instructions.
How to apply
Applications are open until the appropriate candidates are selected.
