    Hi everyone,

    I wanted to bring to your attention a fully funded PhD scholarship that I have available to work in my research group at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in Brisbane, Australia.   The scholarship includes a full tuition waiver, and a generous AU$28,597 p.a. tax-free stipend to cover the student’s living expenses.


    The PhD project will involve mathematical modeling and analysis of biochemical reaction networks and biological signaling pathways, and will make important new contributions to the rapidly developing field of Robust Perfect Adaptation (see, for example, here: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-018-04151-6 ;  and here:  https://cosmosmagazine.com/mathematics/maths-researchers-find-the-rules-that-govern-how-cells-work/ ).  The project itself can be tailored to suit the interests of the particular student, and can either be very theory-oriented, or more focussed on applications.  The student will be based in the School of Mathematical Sciences at QUT, and will join other research students in my research group, who are working on related projects in mathematical biology.  No prior background in biology (or mathematical biology) is needed, but an interest in applying mathematical ideas to the study of fundamental problems in biology and/or medicine is essential.  The student will also be co-supervised by Dr Adrianne Jenner (QUT) and will have the opportunity to be involved in international collaborations, and to work with exciting new experimental data.

    The successful applicant will hold a first-class Honours degree (four-year Bachelor degree with outstanding GPA) in mathematics, physics, engineering or a related (mathematical) field.  Outstanding senior undergraduate students expecting to graduate in 2021 are strongly encouraged to apply.  Expected start date is mid/late 2021, although this timeframe is highly flexible in view of the current COVID-related travel restrictions, and can be delayed until early 2022 if necessary.


    To apply, please email your curriculum vitae, academic transcript, and a brief statement about your interest in this PhD project to Dr Robyn Araujo (r.araujo@qut.edu.au).  Further details here:  https://www.qut.edu.au/study/fees-and-scholarships/scholarships/mathematical-analysis-of-biochemical-reaction-networks


    Kind regards,
