Project Start Date:01.03.2022
Application Deadline:25.02.2022
Supervisor Name:

Associate Professor Michael Simmonds, Email: m.simmonds@griffith.edu.au

Location (City/Campus):Gold Coast Campus
Project Description:

The Mechanobiology Research Laboratory employs experimental approaches to furthering understanding of the intracellular processes that occur when biological cells are exposed to physical forces – like when blood passes through very narrow capillaries. We have acquired and built infrastructure unique in the Australian context. Our team draws together experts in cell biology, blood rheology, mechanical engineering, medicine, and biophysics, with pathways for post-doctoral research in-house. Our collaborations are international, and we partner with international medical device developers, providing excellent opportunities for partnerships and further training. We are based principally at the Gold Coast campus.

We are currently looking for a PhD candidate to join our interdisciplinary team to further uncover the secrets of blood mechanotransduction. Our team studies how blood is affected by physiological forces, and also those much larger forces within medical devices. Our techniques are highly innovative, and incorporate optical physics, biochemistry and molecular probes, and blood rheology. The primary focus of this role will contribute to elucidating the manner in which blood cells dynamically alter their physical properties via internal signalling processes. Success in this role requires: i) extensive collaborative spirit, as evidenced through working with medical professionals, engineers, biophysicists, and biochemists; and ii) tenacity and an independent drive to contribute to science.

Funding Information:

The 2022 Griffith University Postgraduate Research Scholarship has an annual stipend of $28,854 (indexed) for a period of up to three years of full-time study. Please see the GUPRS Conditions of Award for more information.

A successful International applicant will also be awarded a Griffith University International Postgraduate Research Scholarship to cover tuition fees for up to three years. Please see the GUIPRS Conditions of Award for more information.

Special Requirements:

The selection of applicants for the award of higher degree research scholarships at Griffith University involves consideration of your academic merit and research background. To be successful within this role, you will be able to work with biological specimens in a mixed technology-web laboratory environment. You will have evidence of a passion for discovery and innovation, with a strong desire to undertake research in human mechanobiology.

Applicants must have completed, or expect to complete, a bachelors degree with honours equivalent to first class honours or a Masters degree (AQF Level 9) incorporating a substantial research component of a standard comparable to a Bachelor honours degree in an appropriate discipline (e.g., science; biomedical science; engineering). Hands-on experience with laboratory projects is essential, and experiences outside of university including, for example, electronics, programming, or high-level sport/music is highly desirable

If you are an international applicant who is not currently based in Australia or New Zealand and travel restrictions impact your ability to commence a research project on campus, you will be required to demonstrate the feasibility of commencing your research project in your home country in order to be considered for scholarship. Please see the Applications for Scholarship FAQ – Statement of feasibility to commence off-shore (https://www.griffith.edu.au/research-study/faqs).

Additional Information:

Interested applicants should submit an expression of interest (EOI) to m.simmonds@griffith.edu.au containing:

Statement addressing your suitability for the project/scholarship
Evidence that you have completed a Bachelor Degree with Class 1 Honours or will be regarded by Griffith University as having an equivalent level of attainment in accordance with Schedule One of the HDR Scholarship Policy
A brief CV
Research proposal
Two references
The closing date for EoIs is 11.59pm Friday 25 February 2022

The preferred applicant will then be invited to apply on-line.

Grundlegendes zum Schwerpunkt Bio- und Chemiewissenschaften

Im Mittelpunkt der Biologiewissenschaften stehen alle grundlegenden Aspekte lebender Organismen: Mikroorganismen, Pilze, Pflanzen und Tiere. Viele Forschungsgruppen arbeiten mit interdisziplinären Fragestellungen und untersuchen, wie Arten und Ökosysteme verwaltet, erhalten und wiederhergestellt werden können. Mit modernen Techniken und Methoden, die von molekularen und genetischen Analysen bis hin zu Big-Data-Sciences reichen, werden komplexe Zusammenhänge erforscht.  

Wie die Biologie so spielt auch die Chemie in allen Bereichen unseres Lebens eine grundlegende Rolle. Zentrale Bedeutung hat die Entwicklung neuer Medikamente für die Behandlung von Krankheiten und die Entwicklung innovativer Materialien.Australische Hochschulen zeichnen sich durch hervorragende Grundlagen- und angewandte Forschung aus, deren Ergebnisse eine bedeutende Rolle für die chemische Industrie weltweit darstellen.
