A future in neuroscience - exciting PhD opportunities
The CNRM’s exciting research focuses on understanding and curing Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease, as well as the neuroscience of learning and movement.
We are part of UTS, located at the prestigious St Vincent’s research campus which includes state-of the-art facilities shared with AMR, Garvan Institute, Victor Chang Cardiac Institute and St Vincent’s hospital.
We ensure an outstanding student experience and provide strong student support to ensure the basis of a successful future in research.
Projects available include cutting-edge behavioural, molecular, cellular, physiological and brain mapping approaches focusing on:
- Immunology of brain diseases
- Neuroprotective strategies in Parkinson's disease
- Mechanisms of synapses loss in Alzheimer's disease
- Investigating new non-heritable genetic determinants of Alzheimer's disease
- Neuronal circuits and cellular basis of memory formation and memory loss
After receipt of an EOI, selected candidates will be supported to apply for the prestigious University of Technology Sydney PhD Program at the Centre for Neuroscience and Regenerative Medicine.
PhD Scholarships available through UTS and CNRM range from $28 000 to $40 000, depending on competitiveness of application. Tuition fee waivers and top-up scholarships available through competitive process.

These innovative neuroscience studies will be carried out under the mentorship of Professor Bryce Vissel, Director of the centre for Neuroscience & Regenerative Medicine, Professor of Neuroscience at the Faculty of Science, University of Technology Sydney (UTS).
UTS has a bold vision to be a world-leading university of technology. Consistently ranked the top young university in Australia, we are an innovative university with a culturally diverse campus life and extensive international exchange and research programs.
We are thrilled to offer this opportunity to conduct research at the Centre for Neuroscience & Regenerative Medicine (CNRM), a priority initiative of UTS.
The CNRM is working to achieve transformative outcomes for sufferers of neurological diseases and SCI through the employment of a novel, trans-disciplinary approach.
Students working in our Centre will be afforded the opportunity to combine breakthrough neuroscience with research in disciplines across Science and Engineering.
This scholarship is open to candidates who have completed an undergraduate degree with first class honours or equivalent, a masters degree or international candidates who have an outstanding undergraduate record.
Candidates still completing their honours or masters degrees may also apply.
