  Programming anisotropy into responsive soft materials
  Prof JR Stokes, Assoc Prof I Blakey
Application Deadline: 10 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project seeks to develop new kinds of soft nanomaterials using our recent discovery of liquid crystal hydroglass phase in suspensions of nanocellulose colloidal rods.
  Female reproductive investment and ageing: an evolutionary perspective on osteoporosis (Funded by the QUEX Institute)
  Dr M Fortes
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Some individuals age faster than others, experience age-related diseases earlier, such as osteoporosis, and ultimately live a shorter life.
  Ecosystem resilience to pathogens: understanding the interplay between pathogen host shifts and coevolutionary dynamics (Funded by the QUEX Institute)
  Dr J Engelstaedter
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pathogens are an inevitable part of every ecosystem. In humans as well as in livestock and natural systems, the majority of pathogens have only arrived in their host species relatively recently, by switching from a different host species.
  Climate change and mental health – exploring trends across Australia and the UK (Funded by the QUEX Institute)
  Dr A Cleary
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is the greatest threat to global health in the 21st century. While certain physical health impacts of climate change are well understood, for example heat-related morbidity and mortality, the acute and chronic mental health impacts of climate change remain poorly understood.
  Nano-hydrogel bandage for non-invasive Raman monitoring of chronic wound healing (Funded by the QUEX Institute)
  Assoc Prof I Blakey
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chronic wounds (CW), wounds that persist more than 3 months, have been referred to as a major and snowballing public health burden which adversely affects the quality of life.
  The role of bone marrow fat in advance prostate cancer using bioengineered humanised models
  Dr N Bock
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SYNOPSIS. This highly innovative PhD project focuses on one of the key challenges in the fields of cancer research and translational medicine, which is to ‘make the mouse organism more human’.
  Characterising and editing the age stage of somatic cells
  Dr C Nefzger
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

On a cellular level, age appears to be a largely epigenetic phenomenon that can be manipulated by pluripotency induction. Transdifferentiation and iPS technologies are forms of transcription factor (TF)-mediated cell reprogramming.
  Dissecting the ageing transcription factor network to set a rational basis for age-intervention strategies
  Dr C Nefzger, Dr M Naval-Sanchez
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

On a cellular level, ageing appears to be a largely epigenetic phenomenon that can be manipulated by pluripotency induction. Transdifferentiation and iPS technologies are forms of transcription factor (TF)-mediated cell reprogramming.
  Hearing colour and seeing sound - switchable polymer molecular imaging agents for visualizing disease progression
  Dr N Boase
Application Deadline: 30 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Molecular imaging aims to use non-invasive techniques to probe and visualize molecules in the body, which can be used to measure biochemical processes and disease progression.
  Using Statistical Techniques in Genetic Epidemiology to Investigate the Developmental Origins of Health and Disease (DOHaD)
  Prof D Evans
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a well-documented observational relationship between low birthweight infants and increased risk of disease in later life (e.g.
  Finding the right fungal friends: determining how plant defences against against insect herbivores are impacted by different mycorrhizal fungal communities.
  Dr A Frew
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Almost all plants on the planet are attacked by at least one, if not many, insect herbivores. Many of these insects have become pests of crops and they impact crop productivity.
  Quantum Optomechanical Ultrasound Sensing
  Prof Warwick Bowen, Dr G Harris
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Summary. Quantum optomechanics explores the interaction between light and mechanical motion at a level where the quantised nature of light, or the zero-point fluctuations of motion, play a significant role.
  Identifying pharmacological targets for osteoporosis intervention using whole-genome and exome sequencing of bone related phenotypes
  Dr J Kemp
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Osteoporosis (OP) is an often asymptomatic multi-factorial condition that is characterized by a progressive loss of bone mass resulting in increased fracture (FX) risk and reduced lifespan(1).
  Manufacturing of Balloon for Intra-Ventricular Balloon Pump
  Dr J Pauls
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

The Critical Care Research Group (CCRG), based at the The Prince Charles Hospital (TPCH) in Brisbane, Australia, is seeking highly motivated, skilled and committed PhD candidates to join our multidisciplinary and international research team to commence a PhD project.
  The Impact Of Haemodynamics Generated In Mechanical Circulatory Support Devices On Primary Haemostasis Using A Blood-Shearing Device
  Dr J Pauls
Applications accepted all year round
