  Animal and Robotics Interactions: Deploying UAV's to Enable Proximal Sensing and Management of Livestock
  Assoc Prof M Trotter, Prof S Moore
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The interaction between animals and robotics is an emerging and exciting area of cross-disciplinary research. There are numerous opportunities for robotics, and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in particular, to make an impact on the way in which livestock are managed.
  Lighting the Way - Adventures in Fruit Spectroscopy
  Prof K Walsh, Dr P Subedi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Join Northern Australia's agricultural innovator, CQU's Institute for Future Farming Systems - a world-leader in delivering practical solutions which are bolstering the productivity, profitability and sustainability of the horticulture sectors.
  Identifying the key soil, water and crop sensing, and forecasting parameters for the proper implementation of automated irrigation systems in strategically ponded rice cropping.
  Assoc Prof John Hornbuckle, Dr Carlos Ballester Lurbe
Application Deadline: 1 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Water is a key input into the rice industry. Water scarcity and increased competition across multiple irrigation industries is raising the interest of the rice industry in irrigation techniques that minimise water application, such as the alternate wetting and drying (AWD) and delayed permanent water (DPW).
  Monitoring and managing aquatic weeds in irrigation channels - Remote Sensing
  Assoc Prof John Hornbuckle, Dr Tony Dugdale
Application Deadline: 1 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Aquatic weed management is a major issue for many irrigation companies throughout Australia and across the globe.
  Conservation Genomics and Epigenomics of Fragmented and Declining Populations
  Prof L Beheregaray
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for a bright candidate for one PhD position associated with the project. “The evolutionary potential of fragmented and declining populations”.
  EMBLA Project - The regulation of phase transition by alternative splicing
  Dr R Weatheritt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

More than 90% of human genes undergo alternative splicing, the process by which multiple, distinct transcript and protein variants are expressed from a single gene.
  Bioengineering of innovative functional biomaterials for diagnosis of Q fever
  Prof Bernd Rehm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Q fever is an infection by the intracellular pathogen Coxiella burnetii that can cause a severe flu-like illness. The sensitive and specific diagnosis of Q fever is important for early intervention and for control and management of the disease.
  Development of a new biomaterials platform by combining biomimetics with microfluidics
  Prof Bernd Rehm, Dr D Wibowo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Synthetic biology enables engineering of bacterial cells to serve as cell factories for the assembly of novel material such as tailor-made biopolymers attached to protein functions which mediate deposition of inorganics such as found in tooth formation.
  Development of nature-inspired polyester particles for cancer vaccines
  Prof Bernd Rehm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Advances in synthetic biology allows recombinant bacteria to produce protein coated polyester particles. These polyester particles have been utilized as particulate vaccines against bacterial and viral infections.
  Genome editing toward bacterial cell factories for synthesis and assembly of innovative materials
  Prof Bernd Rehm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial cell factories were developed to demonstrate production of tailor-made biopolymers such as polyesters and polysaccharides.
  Innovative bioseparation resins
  Prof Bernd Rehm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The manufacture of biopharmaceuticals, such as therapeutic proteins, is increasingly facing limitations due to insufficient performance of existing purification processes.
  Modular design and assembly of innovative biopolymer beads as drug delivery platform
  Prof Bernd Rehm, Dr D Wibowo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The FDA-approved polyhydroxybutyrate self-assembles in engineered bacteria and forms spherical beads of approximately 200 nm in diameter.
  Protein engineering of protein switches for development of diagnostics tools
  Prof Bernd Rehm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sensitive and specific detection of serum antibodies is often used to diagnose infections. This project aims to develop a simple qualitative/quantitative device for detection of antibodies of interest.
  Self-assembly of engineered biopolymers and proteins toward functional materials
  Prof Bernd Rehm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biopolymers and proteins can be bioengineered to self-assemble into defined hierarchical architectures. Here protein engineering will be applied to design proteins, which link biopolymers such as alginate, biopolyester and spider silk to form complex hybrid materials.
  Synthetic biology toward innovative virus-like particles
  Prof Bernd Rehm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Virus-like particles (VLP) are self-assembled viral proteins that do not contain genetic material and are non-infectious. VLPs have been successfully developed into particulate vaccines for prevention of viral infections such as human papilloma virus or Hepatitis B.
