About the Project
As the work in this project is cross disciplinary, the project suits a broad range of students. For example, we currently have mathematicians working on the image reconstruction part of the project (inverse problems) and optimisation, biomedical engineers working on embedded programming and control systems, medical physicists working with linear accelerators and CT scanners, and, computer scientists working on software development and machine learning.
The work will be conducted in the ACRF Image X Institute at the University of Sydney where we have a reputation for translational research through to clinical trials and commercialisation (3 spinoff companies). The Institute has access to high end research machines (linear accelerators, CT scanners, etc) and currently has 20 to 30 full time researchers. We offer a highly collaborative research team that will provide you with the opportunity to get support and mentoring for the entire duration of your studies.
Our previous PhD students have gone on to successful careers in hospitals, industry and academia including leading the formation of spinout companies. We strongly encourage you to reach out to Associate Professor Ricky O’Brien to discuss the project in more detail as well as discussing the research environment and support offered by the ACRF Image X Institute.
Candidates need to be eligible to enrol in a PhD at the University of Sydney which typically requires completing an undergraduate or masters degree with a research/thesis project as part of the course.
The closing date is 18th January 2021, but those that are self-funded or intend to apply for RTP scholarships can apply at any time of the year.
This scholarship does not include university tuition fees so international students will still need to cover this annual fee themselves.
