PhD scholarship in Titanium Alloys for Biomedical Applications

This project will investigate a new class of β titanium alloy biomaterials with low Young’s modulus, high yield strength, excellent biocompatibility, and bio-functionalities.

This project will characterise the microstructural evolution and determine the relationships between the microstructure and the mechanical properties of new titanium alloys. 

The research topic of this project can also be the surface modification or biocompatibility assessment of titanium alloys.

$31,260 for three years.

To be eligible for this scholarship you must:

  • Have a Master by Research degree or
  • A Master by Coursework degree with a significant research component graded as high distinction or equivalent or
  • An Honours degree achieving first-class Honours in engineering or science or another suitable field.

Candidates of Australian citizen or permanent residence are preferred.

To apply, please submit the following documents to Professor Cuie Wen via

  • A cover letter briefly outlining your interest in the project
  • Evidence of research ability, such as a digital copy of a Masters or Honours thesis
