Develop your advanced research skills and contribute to new developments in health and biomedical sciences.
The School of Health and Biomedical Sciences is committed to an interdisciplinary, collegial approach to scientific investigation.
This approach brings together clinical and basic researchers who explore the boundaries between the disciplines. Findings inform clinical teaching and advance the treatment of patients.
Projects can involve more than 120 researchers including academic staff, postdoctoral fellows, research assistants, support staff, honours and postgraduate students. Research is undertaken at RMIT's Bundoora campus in the purpose-built biosciences facility. The building's shared spaces promote a collaborative and multidisciplinary approach to science.
Under expert supervision, you will develop your skills and join researchers already active in:
- cardiovascular disease, stroke and thrombosis
- chronic respiratory disease
- comparative biochemistry
- endocrinology and metabolic disease (obesity, diabetes and fatty liver disease)
- gastrointestinal diseases
- NanoSafe Australia
- natural products, drug discovery and new therapeutics
- neuropharmacology and neuroinflammatory diseases
- nutrition and exercise physiology and biochemistry
- skin biology and tissue repair
International student visa holders can only study full-time.
Time spent on research
Full-time candidates are expected to commit at least four days per week (or at least two days per week for part-time candidates) to their research. The academic year is 48 weeks.
Regular contact with your supervisor
A schedule of meetings with your supervisor/s must be established to assess progress against milestones and timely completion.
Resources, facilities and support
You will have access to online resources through the myRMIT student portal. You will be part of an active research community and have access to resources and workshops to help you succeed.
School of Graduate Research
The School of Graduate Research works with Schools to further support candidates during their postgraduate research degree.
RMIT University is committed to providing you with an education that strongly links formal learning with professional or vocational practice.
A masters degree will provide you with a foundation for further studies into a PhD and employment in senior leadership and management research-based positions in a variety of government, non-government and corporate organisations.
