PhD Positions

Current PhD Projects

Applications are accepted from students worldwide:

Engineering the human osteocyte lacunocanalicular network in vitro

We are seeking a full-time, highly motivated PhD candidate to perform cutting-edge research in bone tissue engineering at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in the School of Biomedical Sciences. Applications open all year round. Find out more.

Shark cartilage: Biophysical, environmental and regenerative adaptations to hydrostatic pressure

We are seeking a highly motivated PhD candidate to investigate the biophysical, environmental and regenerative adaptations of shark cartilage in a range of species from shallow water to deep-sea. The project (based at La Trobe University, Melbourne) will assess healing processes of shark cartilage under different environmental conditions.

Embedded bacterial 3D printing for synthetic biomaterial screening and production

This project (based at QUT) aims to realize a novel platform for screening and manufacturing artificial bacterial biopolymers with tuneable material properties. Embedded 3D printing will be used to print micro-droplets encapsulating bacterial cells and synthetic polysaccharide building blocks in a support gel bath. Applications open all year round.
