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 in our research theme of: Quantum-enabled neural imaging.

The brain is the most complex organ in nature, with 86 billion neurons connected through 1014 synapses in humans. How its extraordinary computing power is achieved is far from fully understood. Join us to create quantum microscopes and whole-brain imaging technologies and apply them to understand how neural networks change over time.
