University of Queensland ( QUT ) has announced about brown group biomedical engineering and material scholarships. They are offering up to four Ph.D. scholarships in biomedical engineering and materials. This is high-performance Brown Group, who are relocating from Oxford University to QUT.

About the Brown Group:

The Brown Group combines advanced experimental and computational techniques to provide new insights into the structure-function relationships in biomedical materials. While focusing on musculoskeletal tissues and related biomaterials, the group maintains an active interest in other high-performance biological materials including spider silk and ivory. The Brown Group is also involved in a number of translational activities, including the development of new optics-based diagnostic devices, scalable nanostructured surfaces and 3D constructs for regenerative medicine, new devices and approaches for surgery, and automated analysis/interpretation techniques for medical imaging.

Research Projects

Projects with key Ph.D. positions available include:

  • spider-silk: structure mechanics and synthesis.
  • understanding and exploiting the phenomenal properties of collagen.
  • surgery with rockets.
  • magnetically guided micro-rocket sutures.
  • controlling and harnessing collagen piezoelectricity for energy harvesting and biomedical materials.
  • development of an optical technique for the measurement of bioelectric fields.
  • development and exploitation of native spider cells and processing techniques for silk production and characterization.
  • You can read about the other projects from here.

Eligibility Criteria:

  1. You must apply for and be admitted to Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in the university. 
  2. Your research proposal must be innovative and high impact.
  3. Scholarship accepts applications from candidates from any academic background, provided you meet the eligibility requirements for the Ph.D.

Funding and Benefits:

  • You’ll receive $27,082 per year, tax-free for up to 3 years.
  • You will be able to develop in-depth knowledge, understanding, and expertise in your chosen field of research. 
  • Technical development will be coupled with extensive professional development towards an academic or research and development career. 
  • You will benefit from access to flexible and bespoke experimental facilities, high-level scientific expertise, access to a range of local and international collaborators, and world-class facilities including QUT's Medical Engineering Research Facility (MERF).

About QUT:

Queensland University of Technology (QUT) is a major Australian university with a global outlook and a real-world focus. It is one of the nation’s fastest-growing research universities and the courses are in high demand. The graduates include eight Rhodes Scholars, five of these awarded in the past six years.
