PhD Scholarship in Discovery and Development of New Diagnostic Pet Tracers for Brain Cancer

A fully-funded PhD fellowship in medicinal chemistry is available at The University of Queensland. The funding allows successful candidate to work for three years. Applicants should apply before June 17, 2019.

The Centre for Advanced Imaging (CAI), a strategic initiative of The University of Queensland, is a leading imaging research facility in Australia, and one of a handful in the world. It brings together the skills of a critical mass of researchers and state-of-the-art, world- or Australian-first imaging research instruments including NMR, EPR, MRI, PET, CT, optical imaging and an on-site cyclotron and radiochemistry facilities. CAI hosts the largest Node of the National Imaging Facility (NIF) (http://anif.org.au/ ).

CAI conducts research across the spectrum from development of new imaging technologies, analysis of molecular structure, synthesis of MRI and PET biomarkers targeting fundamental biological processes to studies of major diseases affecting a range of organ systems, through to imaging economically significant agricultural animals and plant material, minerals and construction materials.

A multidisciplinary, cohesive student community have come together from all over the globe to CAI to undertake research training. The Centre has an active student association (STAC)that provides many opportunities for networking and professional development, a supportive mentoring structure that will enhance personal and professional growth, an annual symposium and a well-attended weekly seminar program which attracts high profile National and International speakers.

Further details on the Centre for Advanced imaging and ongoing research can be found on CAI's website http://www.cai.uq.edu.au/.

The Australian Research Council Training Centre for Innovation in Biomedical Imaging Technology (CIBIT) is a multidisciplinary collaboration between researchers at The University of Queensland's Centre for Advanced Imaging and partners in the Medical Technologies and Pharmaceutical industry. Students will undertake industry-driven research to overcome bottlenecks in the development and application of novel diagnostics, therapeutics and theranostics and to inform changes in regulatory policy that support industry growth. Scholarships will include an industry placement for one year.

CIBIT's research falls under two themes. This position is for Theme 1 projects.

Theme 1: 'Smart' Probes: Diagnostics, therapeutics and theranostics for Precision Medicine in cancer.

Applicants should have a background in medicinal chemistry, organic chemistry, radiochemistry or pharmaceutical chemistry, with strong background in synthesis and medicinal chemistry. Previous experience in 11Carbon or 18Fluorine chemistry is desirable, but not essential. Applicants must be highly motivated and willing to learn different aspects of PET imaging.

CIBIT is supported by industry partners Siemens Healthcare Pty Ltd, BGI International Pty Ltd, Inter-K Peptide Therapeutics, Clarity Pharmaceuticals Pty Ltd, Minomic International Ltd, Theranostics (Australia) Pty Ltd, Brisbane Veterinary Specialist Centre, Uniting Care Medical Imaging Pty Ltd and Red Radiology Pty Ltd.

To be eligible to apply, you must also meet the entry requirements for Higher Degrees by Research at UQ. Please visit theGraduate School’s website.

A domestic part-time student with carer's responsibilities, a medical condition or a disability, which prevents them from studying full time may be eligible for scholarship consideration, on a case by case basis.

$33,413 per annum tax-free (2019 rate), indexed annually, for three years with the possibility of two 6 month extensions in approved circumstances.
