  Photovoltaic Engineering: Revolutionary Technologies for Silicon Solar Cells
  Dr K C Fong, Prof A.W. Blakers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Solar photovoltaics and wind currently constitutes more than 60% of global annual net new generation capacity. We are on the pivotal point of a massive revolution in favor of renewable energy sources.
  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.
  Joint PhD with RWTh Aachen: Plasticity induced magnetisation losses in energy conversion processes
  Dr C Brandl, Prof S Korte-Kerzel
Application Deadline: 20 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Application. Electro-mechanical energy conversions processes related to electromobility and conventional energy generation/conversion.
  Computational materials engineering of interfaces in alloys
  Dr C Brandl
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research field. We are working in Computational Materials Science which is an interdisciplinary area. It’s a challenging mix of physics, materials science, engineering, mathematics, and computational science.
  The management of marine plastics
  Prof Paul Lant, Prof B Laycock
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plastics pollution in our oceans is a wicked problem.
  Quality of Australian Honey from Native Botanicals
  Assoc Prof Y Sultanbawa, Dr H Smyth, Dr E Grace
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Queensland led Australian Research Council (ARC) Industrial Transformation Training Centre (ITTC) for Uniquely Australian Foods (IC180100045) aims to transform the native Food and Agribusiness Sector through development of selected crops, foods and ingredients using an Indigenous governance group to oversee the process of converting Traditional Knowledge into Branded Products.
  Advanced Optical Fibre Fabrication and Applications
  Prof J Canning
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Advanced Optical Fibre Fabrication. Areas can include new Bi fibres (led by Prof. Peng at UNSW; Prof Canning is a Conjoint Professor) for amplifiers, lasers and sensors and novel structured fibres including photonic crystal fibres, Fresnel fibres, spun structured optical fibres and so on.
