PhD Scholarship in Chemical Engineering at Monash University

Monash University is offering PhD position in analytical chemistry. Applicants should apply before August 30, 2019.

Remuneration:Stipend value of $28,900 per annum

PhD Project - Implantable biosensors for real-time and continuous monitoring of disease.

A full scholarship is available for a PhD student to conduct research on development of a new class of biochemical sensors to detect and quantify disease-related protein biomarkers in animal models of disease. The research will be conducted in Dr Simon Corrie's group (Nanosensor Engineering Lab) in the Department of Chemical Engineering, in collaboration with research groups at Monash and overseas.

This project will combine nanoparticles and engineered antibodies which can be injected into the skin to bind target proteins and produce signals that are detectable using a range of common biomedical imaging modalities. Using nanoparticles sourced either from the NEL or from commercial sources, the student will design and express engineered antibodies that, when bound to the nanoparticle surface, can transduce protein binding events for detection outside the body. A strong background in Analytical Chemistry and/or Molecular Biology (or Protein Engineering) is essential. Additional experience in animal studies is desirable.

Applicants must show excellent communication and inter-personal skills, and the ability to conduct self-motivated research. They should hold a research-based Honours or Masters Degree (or equivalent) in the relevant research areas and have a record of publishing their research in mainstream scientific journals.

Note: applicants who already hold a PhD will not be considered.

Applicants will be considered provided that they fulfil the criteria for PhD admission at Monash University and demonstrate excellent research capability. Details of the relevant requirements are available at

A cover letter that includes a brief statement of the applicant’s suitability
