The ARC Training Centre in Biodevices at Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne Australia has 10 PhD scholarships on offer for motivated and capable students to enter its advanced PhD program designed to develop future leaders in the medical device industry. Participants will be outstanding students drawn from the disciplines of engineering, science, medicine, design and ICT, or recent graduates with relevant business or technology innovation experience.

Students will have the opportunity to participate in a structured three year PhD program that links their core research activities with skills development in areas relevant to the medical device industry. Students will spend at least one third of their time within industry environments. In addition, students will also have the opportunity to take units from Swinburne's Masters in Entrepreneurship and Innovation during their first year.

With respect to neural engineering, potential projects lie in the applications of the development of software and/or hardware for electroencephalography-based depth of anaesthesia monitoring, such as dry electrodes, or the development of implantable bionic devices to better diagnose and treat epilepsy.

The deadline to apply is April 11 2014.

International students are required to sit an IELTS test (or equivalent, e.g. TOEFL) with an average band score of at least 6.5, with no band less than 6.0. Swinburne also strongly encourages minorities and women to apply.

Interested applicants should email Prof. David T. J. Liley at dliley(at) swin.edu.au.
