University of Queensland PhD Scholarship for International Students 2021

The University of Queensland is inviting applications from domestic and International students for Ph.D. Scholarship at the University. This scholarship is part of an Australian Research Council (ARC) Linkage project titled “Advanced fMRI techniques to study the human motor cortex”.

This Ph.D. project aims to push the limits of this extraordinary technique even further and apply it to study fine motor control in humans. You will be part of an interdisciplinary team that operates at the intersection between physics, computer science, engineering, and neuroscience, to create a new software (such as, control programs for the MRI system itself) and hardware (such as, motion capturing technology). All working together to probe the limits of fMRI and non-invasively study the human brain.

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 on-site cyclotron and radiochemistry facilities. CAI hosts the largest Node of the National Imaging Facility (NIF).

This Ph.D. project will focus on one of the following objectives:

  1. 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.
  2. This PhD project aims to push the limits of this extraordinary technique even further and apply it to study fine motor control in humans.
  3.
