The BioNanoEngineering group is based at the newly established Future Industries Institute at the UniSA, which integrates components of the Ian Wark Research Institute, the Australian Research Council Special Research Centre for Particle and Material Interfaces. The research activities focus at the interface of materials science, nanoscience, bioengineering and medicine and our main objective is to develop and implement novel biodiagnostic and prognostic technologies,with a focus on cancer with poor prognosis. .
The group is seeking two applicants interested in pursuing a PhD in:
1) development of solid-state biosensing technologies and bioelectronics and 2) development of integrated measurement units for point-of-care tele-diagnostic. Successful candidates will work under supervision of a young, dynamic professor within world-class research environment. The group also has a long tradition of working with Vietnamese students.
This will be a 3- to 4-year doctoral program conforming to the general requirements of the University of South Australia and further exigencies imposed by the FII. The Institute has a strong research environment and is deeply committed to world-class research performance. It is expected that the applicant selected for this program will be highly competitive in the academic job market after completing this program. These positions are opened for International and Australian applicants. Selected candidates will be guided through application process of Australia Awards including prestigious Endeavour Scholarships (up to 272,500 AUD total). External scholarships (VIED, 911..etc) are highly welcomed.
1. For the Endeavour Scholarships, we need to pre-selected candidates since it is not feasible to support every applicants.
2. For Government Scholarships or candidates with external funding, there will be a direct entry for those candidates
