PhD Scholarship Opportunity in Sensor Technology
Are you interested in sensor technology? Do you want to develop tracking solutions for biological samples? Then this opportunity is for you!!
Monash University and industry partner Bluechiip are seeking competitive candidates to apply for a PhD scholarship (AU $34,014 per annum) in sensor technology.
The Project: pH sensor technology for cell culture systems
Monitoring of pH during cell manufacturing processes is essential to scale up cell production. Current pH measurement technology has limitations with respect to performing continuous measurements without pre-calibration. The project will develop resonating beam MEMS and electrochemical pH sensor chips suitable for inclusion in cell culture flasks or storage vials that communicate with a handheld reader and provide a signal when the culture medium is outside of a specified pH range without the need for calibration.
The ARC Training Centre for Cell & Tissue Engineering Technologies (ARC CTET) is a new Research Centre led by Monash University and QUT in collaboration with 22 industry partner organisations. The successful applicant will work closely with industry partner Bluechiip, a Melbourne-based Biotechnology company providing tracking solutions for biosamples in the health and life sciences industries.
Applicants must have previous research and laboratory experience in related fields such as sensors or biosensors, biomaterial development, cell culture and bioassays.
Applications remain open until positions are filled.
