PhD Scholarship in Colloid and Surface Chemistry

This project investigates crossing restrictive biobarriers with self-assembled lipid nanocarriers.

This project will examine the behaviour of nanocarriers at cell/bacteria surfaces and response to biological environments and molecules (such as proteins).  Research will utilize a suite of cutting edge techniques including confocal, total internal reflection microscopy, AFM, QCM, cryo-TEM and x-ray scattering. This is an ARC-RMIT co-funded scholarship providing a stipend of $33,826 per annum (pro-rata) for 3 years.
