CIBIT MPhil Scholarship in molecular imaging - artificial intelligence based/parametric methods 

The Australian Research Council Training Centre for Innovation in Biomedical Imaging Technology (CIBIT) is seeking high-achieving graduate students to undertake postgraduate research into the development and application of novel molecular imaging methodologies. We have exciting opportunities to work with world leading academic researchers and industrial partners focused on the development and translation of new molecular imaging methodologies to the clinic. In particular, the candidate will be involved in development of quantitative methods to improve the sensitivity and specificity of PET and MRI-PET imaging.

Applicants should have a background in the physical sciences including disciplines such as biomedical engineering, engineering, information technology, physics or a related field. Applicants should possess analytical and computational skills, including working with equations, simulations and computer programs and an interest in Imaging Modalities and Healthcare IT Solutions.

Scholarship value $34,013 per annum tax-free (2020 rate), indexed annually for two years (24 months) with possible extension up to 28.5 months.

To be considered for this scholarship, please email the following documents to Professor David Reutens (administrator@cibit.org.au

  • Cover letter
  • CV
  • Academic transcript/s
  • Evidence for meeting UQ's English language proficiency requirements eg TOEFL, IELTS

Please note the following: Submitting the above documents does not constitute a full application for admission into The University of Queensland's PhD program. If you are selected as the preferred applicant, you will then be invited to submit a full application for admission. You can familiarise yourself with the documents required for this process on the Graduate School's website.

   

CIBIT MPhil Scholarship in biomedical imaging technology - MRI 

The Australian Research Council Training Centre for Innovation in Biomedical Imaging Technology (CIBIT), at the University of Queensland, is looking for high calibre enthusiastic Bachelor students who:

  • have studied Engineering, Physics, Computer science degrees or equivalent;
  • are interested in the Biomedical Imaging Technologies, particularly MRI;
  • want to obtain relevant skills and exposure to industry;
