Computational modelling of materials for a heart valve


School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering

Applications accepted all year round Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

About the Project

In this project, fluid structure simulations of flow through a heart valve will be performed to understand the impact of design parameters and the properties of novel materials. There will be opportunities to perform experimental work to collect flow data for use in model validation, as well as scope to possibly be involved in other projects for in silico gut models.

This scholarship has been established by the Bioengineering Research Laboratory within the School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Sydney. It aims to support a PhD student who is undertaking research in Computational Modelling for designing optimum structural, mechanical, and physical properties of materials for a heart valve.

Project eligibility:


• Applicants must hold an honours degree (first class or second class upper) or equivalent in engineering and applied mathematics or a relevant discipline
• Be willing to conduct research into Computational Modelling for designing optimum structural, mechanical, and physical properties of materials for a heart valve
• Have an unconditional offer of admission to study full-time in a PhD within the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Sydney
• Apply for an RTP Scholarship.
• Excellent communication and interpersonal skills with high levels of competency in both written and spoken English.

Centre for Advanced Food Enginomics


The Centre of Advanced Food Enginomics (CAFE) aims to meet the food and health challenges of the 21st century by creating and delivering nutritious and wholesome processed foods to improve human well-being.

CAFE comprises a cross-disciplinary cluster of high-profile researchers using the state-of-art facilities and equipment located within the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Sydney.


Funding Notes

The scholarship will provide an annual stipend allowance equivalent to the University of Sydney’s Research Training Program (RTP) stipend rate of $35,000 (indexed on January 1 each year), for up to three years, subject to satisfactory academic performance. The recipient may apply for an extension of up to six months. The stipend allowance is partially funded by ARC and partially funded the Faculty of Engineering.

Academic course fees are also provided for a successful international applicant, for up to twelve research periods, subject to satisfactory academic performance. Subject to funding availability, an extension of the stipend and academic course fees may be possible for up to six months.
