    Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

Project Description

Sudden Coronary Artery Dissection or SACD often causes sudden death in young females below 44 years. This non-atherosclerotic condition is caused through the split of the internal arterial wall, which narrows the effective arterial cross-section and prevents sufficient blood supply causing heart attacks. SACD occurs more often than previously thought, and early detection and immediate and accurate treatment are crucial for survival.

This work will establish a large dataset of SACD medical images and expands and newly develops a suit of image progressing, and computational and statistical modelling tools to investigate this deadly condition.

Required skills are expertise in mathematical and computational modelling, statistics and image processing.
The ideal candidate is highly motivated and independent.

UNSW is the top engineering University in Australia, and top 35th in the world. It is reknown for being progressive and inclusive, highly valuing diverse student and staff cohort.

Female top-up scholarships are available for $10,000 per annum.
Additional internal tutor opportunities to top up your living allowance are available all year around at $56 per hour.
