We seek highly motivated students for our Honours and PhD programs. Projects may be available in one of our current fields of research. Prospective students are encouraged to attend the Institute's Student Information Session held in September each year, or arrange a personal meeting with a prospective supervisor/s at least three months prior to the proposed project start date.
Students will ideally have a minimum grade average of 75%, and have good verbal and written communication skills. Students must also meet the relevant school's requirements for entry. If you do not meet the minimum grade average but are very interested in pursuing a career in biomedical scientific research, contact us or the researcher you are interested in working with to discuss potential opportunities.
Prospective PhD students will have a first class or high second class honours or equivalent degree. Priority will be given to students already possessing a scholarship or funding for their study. Scholarships may be available for particular projects, which will be advertised on the website. We encourage all students who meet the above criteria to contact our project leaders.
Scholarships may be available for both Honours and PhD programs through Murdoch University.
