PhD scholarship in Industry-based research

This project is a joint project between RMIT and Psylo, a biotechnology company developing next-generation therapeutics inspired by psychedelic compounds that exist in nature.

Thus far, Pyslo have had some success using computational chemistry methods to guide the design of novel therapeutics. However, the nuances between what makes a compound a therapeutic, compared to a psychedelic remain to be elucidate. Using cutting-edge computational chemistry techniques, including homology modelling and computational docking, this project aims to do this. This project will be suitable for a student with computational skills and a basic understanding of chemistry and comes with a full scholarship +$10K top-up pa.
