PhD Scholarship in Implantable Biochemical Sensor Technology

A PhD Scholarship is available for a suitably qualified candidate within the School of Life Science at University of Technology Sydney (UTS).

Candidates must be Australian citizens or have Australian permanent residency status. This PhD scholarship is for 3 years with a possible 6 month extension.

Working with Dr Charles Cranfield (UTS) and his commercial partner, Adj Prof Bruce Cornell (SDx Surgical Diagnostics Pty Ltd), this project seeks to create a new family of short term implantable sensor. This project will suit students with a background in either pharmacology, chemistry, biochemistry or biophysics. As part of your PhD work you will receive training electrical impedance spectroscopy techniques. Your research will be in the Life Science Laboratories at UTS’ Ultimo Campus right in the heart of Sydney. There will also be opportunities to work directly with the commercial partner at their headquarters in Roseville and potentially in a clinical setting. This project is supported by the Australia Research Council funded IDEAL Hub.

UTS has a strong commitment to Equity and Diversity, and we especially encourage women and indigenous students seeking to make a career in a STEM science field to apply.

Interested candidates should get in touch with Dr Charles Cranfield charles.cranfield@uts.edu.au for more information.
