About the Project

 QUBIC is the first nation-wide research Centre at the nexus of quantum and biotechnology globally. Our mission is to lead the world in applying quantum physics to biotechnology, driving fundamental understanding and applications across biomedical imaging, chemical design and clean energy. Joining us, you will work on developing quantum technologies that go far beyond what is possible today, from portable brain imagers to super-fast single protein sensors, and on applying them to unravel key problems including how enzymes catalyse reactions and how higher brain function emerges from networks of neurons. You will have the opportunity to work in close partnership with industry and government.

QUBIC involves five universities – The University of Queensland (UQ), the University of Melbourne (UoM), the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), the University of Wollongong (UoW) and Flinders University (FLD). We have partnerships with 14 leading international universities and 12 industry partners spanning quantum technologies, biotechnology, computing and microscopy. 

QUBIC is offering a PhD project for a talented and ambitious students across the research theme of: Emergent phenomena in biology.

The life of cells is governed by complex emergent behaviours. These behaviours maintain their health and defend them against disease. How they arise from molecular scale interactions remains a grand challenge of modern biology. Join us to develop multi-modal quantum microscopes to probe dynamics at scales from single molecule to whole cell, and to transform understanding of how large-scale cellular behaviours emerge from the nanoscale dynamics of molecular machines.
