ICS MQRES Lab-on-a-chip Microbiology PhD Scholarship - Macquarie University (Australia)

Closing Date: 30 May 2008
PhD Scholarship in Experimental Lab-on-a-chip Devices for Cell and Microbial Identification

A full-time PhD Macquarie University Research Excellence Scholarships (MQRES) is currently available in the Division of Information and Communication Sciences for a project in experimental lab-on-a-chip devices in the department of physics. The successful candidate will undertake PhD research on design and fabrication of novel microfluidic devices for microbiology.

The field of microfluidics concerns itself with a wide variety of interdisciplinary topics including fundamental questions in biology chemistry and physics. This project will involve the design and fabrication of microfluidic devices for concentrating and separating microbes, allowing for faster and earlier detection of dangerous organisms in fluids ranging from drinking water to blood. Fabrication will be done using an in-house semiconductor fabrication facility, and characterization will be done using state of the art facilities in the biology department. The skills gained in this PhD project will be valuable in the growing field of biotechnology.

MQRES scholarships are available to domestic and international students. Applicants should have completed equivalent research qualifications to an Australian undergraduate degree with first class honours in a relevant discipline (Engineering, Physics, Chemistry or Biology) , such as a Masters degree with substantial thesis component. Early career professionals interested in returning to higher degree studies are also encouraged to apply.

The MQRES stipend is currently $20,007 p.a. tax exempt (2008) for a maximum tenure of 3.5 years full-time, subject to satisfactory progress. Tuition fees will be sponsored for the scholarship tenure.

Further information regarding this project, may be obtained by contacting the co-supervisor: Dr David Inglis, telephone: +61-2-9850-4167, email: dinglis@ics.mq.edu.au. The project will be co-supervised by Prof. Ewa. Goldys., email: goldys@ics.mq.edu.au, you can find out more about Professor Goldys' research at www.physics.mq.edu.au/~goldys/core/.
