PhD/Postdoctoral Opportunities in Micro/Nanoscale Physics for Biomedical Engineering

  1. Aug 24, 2005 #1
    Postgraduate and postdoctoral opportunities are available to work on various projects in the Micro/Nanophysics Research Laboratory at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Monash University. Current efforts in the laboratory are focused on understanding novel structural and fluidic phenomena at the micro/nano scales and also on developing a wide array of micro/nano-electro-mechanical and micro/nanofluidic devices for biomedical engineering applications. Amongst the devices being developed are novel micron or submicron aerosol and particle generators using acoustic/electric fields for pulmonary drug delivery, micro-mixing for high throughput drug screening microarrays, micro-actuators with nanometer accurate positioning and bioparticle concentrator/separators for pathogen detection in biosensors. There will therefore be significant potential for the student or research associate to make a significant impact in this area of microfluidics, MEMS and bio/nanotechnology.

    Currently, postgraduate stipends are available to support research students towards the award of a 3-year PhD degree. Postgraduate awards such as the Australian Postgraduate Awards, the Endeavour International Postgraduate Research Scholarships and several Monash University Postgraduate Scholarship schemes are available to cover the fees for international students. Those interested in postdoctoral research are also encouraged to inquire about possible opportunities, funding schemes at both university, national and international level for which are available.

    Candidates for the PhD programme are expected to have obtained a good first degree (or equivalent) in Chemical/Mechanical/Biomedical Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, Applied Mathematics or a related discipline. Candidates for the postdoctoral research associateship should have submitted or are about to submit a PhD thesis.

    Those interested are invited to contact Dr Leslie Yeo for further information (Tel.: + 61 3 9905 3834; Email: leslie.yeo@eng.monash.edu.au).
