To be eligible for this scholarship you must:

International applicants with outstanding academic and relevant work experience are encouraged to apply.

How to apply

If you are interested, and a curious and motivated graduate in physics, chemistry or related discipline with a background in nanomaterials science and/or optics, please send your CV, and a short (one page) letter of motivation to:

Associate Professor Brant Gibson – Experimental program
Professor Andrew Greentree – Theoretical program

Open date

Applications are now open.

Close date

Applications will close when the position has been filled.

Further information

PhD scholarships are available within the ARC Centre of Excellence for Nanoscale BioPhotonics (CNBP); RMIT University is a node of CNBP. You will be based at the Department of Physics and work on experimental and/or theoretical projects in the field of fluorescent nanoparticles for bioimaging and sensing applications. Our goal is to develop advanced optical materials that efficiently deliver and collect light to and from cells and molecules locally. This will allow us to non-invasively probe individual interacting biomolecules and living cells by using nanoparticle-based sensors.
