Hi All, My colleague is searching for 2 Vietnamese PhD candidates for his group at the Future Industry Institue, University of South Australia. See below for more information: "Multiple PhD Scholarships available for commencing in 2019. The research projects are aligned with a recently awarded Australian Research Council Discovery Grant “Nanoparticle regulation of DNA replication and repair pathways”. The projects will suit driven candidates interested in nanoparticle toxicology. Specifically linking physico-chemical properties of nanoparticles to altering gene and protein regulation in cells. The projects are in a pioneering area of research to provide high-impact outcomes on how exposure to nanoparticles can lead to genotoxic stress as well as therapeutic opportunities in treatment of cancer with radiotherapy and chemotherapy. The projects are highly multidisciplinary in nature and suited to individuals with nanotechnology, biomedical, biophysics, molecular biology, physical chemistry or similar backgrounds. The projects will be conducted in the Future Industries Institute (FII) at the University of South Australia in Adelaide. FII was established with a new research culture in mind – one deeply engaged with industry, with the end goal of building economic growth through relevant innovation and industry partnership. The Institute represents UniSA’s largest single investment in research and builds on the significant capability, infrastructure and reputation of the University’s existing research strengths and substantial research infrastructure. The University of South Australia (UniSA) is Australia’s University of Enterprise. Our culture of innovation is anchored around global and national links to academic, research and industry partners. Our graduates are the new urban professionals, global citizens at ease with the world and ready to create and respond to change. Our research is inventive and adventurous, and we create new knowledge that is central to global economic and social prosperity. Today, we are South Australia’s largest university and ranked amongst the very best young universities in the world. The scholarships provide a living stipend of approx. $27,000 (AUD) per year for 3 years. UniSA can also provide a fee waiver for tuition fees depending on satisfying necessary criteria. Additional funds are available for travel to conferences in each year of the PhD. For more information contact Assoc. Prof. Ivan Kempson (Ivan.Kempson@unsia.edu.au)."
