The Infection Analytics Program at the Kirby Institute is looking for talented students with a strong interest in applying quantitative approaches to solving major challenges in infectious diseases, health and immunity.
The Group and Projects
The Infection Analytics Program is a team of mathematicians, physicists and other quantitative specialists, working to understand infection and immunity. The group primarily works on HIV and malaria and has an outstanding track record of research, making a major contribution to the medical and biological sciences. Students who join the group will be trained in interdisciplinary research with a strong emphasis on using mathematical and quantitative approaches to interpret experimental and clinical data. The aim of our research is to address key questions, such as how antimalarials and immunity operate in malaria infections and how to optimise treatment for HIV. More information on the group is available here .
Applicants are sought for both domestic and international student scholarships for PhD studies commencing in 2020. Student scholarships of up to $34,000-40,000 p.a. are available for a duration of 3.5 years (depending on undergraduate performance).
- A quantitative background (e.g. mathematics / physics / statistics)
- A strong interest in developing a better understanding of real challenges in infection and immunity.
- A strong interest in applying modelling and statistics to better understand experimental and clinical data.
The scholarships are highly competitive. For local students, first class honours is usually required. For international students, a high GPA with research experience (first class honours or equivalent, or high ranking in class) is required.
How to apply
Applications are open now for students to commence in April 2020.
Please apply by providing your academic transcripts and CV to Professor Miles Davenport (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dr. David Khoury (email@example.com).
