A full-time postgraduate scholarship is available for a suitably qualified candidate with a good honours degree in science or engineering to undertake research studies leading to an MPhil in biomechanics, and preferably, to continue pursuing a PhD in the future. The project is to investigate the soft tissue responses to implanted surgical treatment using finite element analysis.
Applicants should have a strong finite element modelling skill with fundamental knowledge in biomechanics. A particular interest and proven experience in the medical image based 3D anatomical modelling would be an advantage. Applicants must be Australian citizens, Australian permanent residents or New Zealand citizens.
