About Queensland University of Technology and Scholarship
Brisbane, Queensland, Australia’s major coastal metropolis of Brisbane is home to Queensland University of Technology (QUT), a public research institution. Gardens Point and Kelvin Grove are the two campuses where QUT is situated in the Brisbane region.
To significantly advance the rapidly growing subject of Robust Perfect Adaptation, the Ph.D. dissertation will entail mathematical modeling and study of biochemical reaction networks and biological signaling pathways. Here are a few instances:
- Universal structures for adaptation in biochemical reaction networks
- Rules that govern how cells work
The project can be modified to fit the interests of the individual student and can either be heavily theoretical or more application-focused. The student will cooperate with other research students in Dr. Araujo’s research group on relevant studies in mathematical biology and will be based in the School of Mathematical Sciences at QUT. The only need is an interest in using mathematical concepts to examine basic issues in biology and/or medicine. No prior knowledge of biology (or mathematical biology) is required. The student will get the chance to work with fascinating new experimental data, participate in cutting-edge international partnerships, and collaborate with eminent Australian scholars.
The chosen candidate will possess a four-year Bachelor’s degree with a first-class honors major in mathematics (including applied mathematics), physics, engineering, or a closely related mathematical discipline. Strongly invited to apply are outstanding senior undergraduate students planning to graduate in 2023.
Details about Scholarships in Mathematical Analysis of Biochemical Reaction Networks at Queensland University of Technology:
Scholarship Sponsor: Queensland University of Technology, Australia
Scholarship Value: Varies
Number of awards: N/A
Study level: PhD
Host Institution(s): Queensland University of Technology, Australia
The chosen candidate will be given a $32,500 annual stipend scholarship to work toward a QUT PhD for up to 3.5 years. The time frame includes a 6-month (PhD) extension if your candidacy is accepted. This is the yearly inflation-adjusted full-time rate.
You will also be sponsored for your research degree’s tuition costs if you are an overseas student. If you’re a domestic student, the Australian Government will finance a Research Training Program (RTP) Fees Offset for you.
