Applications for the next round of domestic PhD scholarships - October 31 2017. Currently we are looking to recruit students with backgrounds and/or interest in molecular biology and/or antibody/protein engineering to develop new biosensors for in vivo sensing.
We are currently looking for top students to join the lab as full-time PhD students. At this time we are particularly interested in people with a background in molecular biology, protein expression (bacterial/mammalian), bioprocessing. Note that Monash scholarships are highly competitive selection processes. Potential PhD students must win a scholarship to join the lab (further information). Dr Corrie can assist top students with preparing their applications. Please look at the relevant scholarship requirements on the Monash website before applying. The earlier you contact us, the better the chance of designing a compelling application, and the better the chances of scholarship success.
Undergraduate Projects (variable length, including internships, volunteer, summer/winter projects, engineering 4th-year projects):
In the contact box below, please describe in 50 words or less why you want to work in our lab.
We are currently looking for keen undergraduates to help us try out some new ideas. Who knows, you might never leave! Students with an interest in engineering (chemical, materials, biomedical, electrical) or science (chemistry, physics, biochemistry, biomedical science, microbiology) should consider applying. The more time we have to meet and design your project, the more interesting it will be for you. We need at least 4 weeks notice (in other words, last minute pleas won't be considered!)
Monash University Science Honours Projects:
In the contact box below, please describe in 100 words or less what subjects you did and did not like in your undergrad program, and why you are interested in an Honours project in our lab.
We are currently looking for top students in their final year of an undergraduate science program to join us for Honours projects, run jointly with a research group in your host department (see the links page for our local and international collaborations). In particular, students with an interest in nanosensor synthesis (chemistry/physics/materials) or antibody engineering (molecular biology/biochemistry/biophysics) are highly encouraged to apply. If you are not sure if you fit the bill, fill in the form anyway and let's have a chat! This could be perfect for those students looking to go "outside the box" of what their host department currently offers.
In the contact box below, please describe in 100 words or less the key outcomes from your PhD or previous positions, your expertise and ideas on how this might fit into the Nanosensor Engineering lab, and your plan to secure salary funding through a Fellowship or equivalent.
We are currently looking to recruit PhD graduates with their own salary funding (Fellowships, etc) to join us and lead a new project in our lab using their unique skill set. Dr Corrie and the team can assist top applicants in applying for Fellowship funding to join us, and will provide funding for research costs and equipment. The goal behind recruiting postdocs is to identify new projects and fill expertise gaps in the team - ensuring that at the end of the project there is mutual benefit to both the group and the postdoc. If you have a strong background in polymer chemistry, antibody/protein engineering, ultrasound physics, or pre-clinical testing of medical devices, please contact us.
Applicants external to Monash University (inc. interstate and international applicants)
In the contact box below, please describe in 100 words or less why you are interested in the Nanosensor Engineering Lab, the type of project in which you are interested (e.g. Hons, MPhil, PhD, postdoc), and your availability for an initial visit for a short-term, voluntary project. .
External applicants for any of the positions outlines above are also highly encouraged to send an email message using the form below. Before undertaking a long-term or permanent move to take on a new project, interested applicants are encouraged to visit the Nanosensor Engineering Lab to take on a short-term project on a full-time, voluntary basis (e.g. 3 weeks to 3 months). Note that applicants will need to cover costs associated with travel (i.e. visa, health insurance, flights, accommodation, etc) and will need to apply for scholarship (further information) or Fellowship funding to cover salary/stipend costs, while research costs will be covered by the lab, in most circumstances.
