PhD Scholarships in Nanotechnology Modelling, University of Wollongong, Australia
PhD Scholarships are available to suitable students with a background in Mathematics, Science or Engineering and with an interest in Nanotechnology.

Specific areas in Nanotechnology include:

  • Dissipation of kinetic energy in gigahertz nano-oscillators,
  • Electron transport in small diameter, highly curved carbon nanotubes,
  • Geometric model of helical carbon nanostructures,
  • Mathematical models for magnetorheological nanodevices incorporating nano-electromagnets,
  • Encapsulation of DNA in carbon nanotubes,
  • Expulsion models for biomolecules in carbon nanotubes,
  • Fluid mechanical study of lab-on-a-chip technologies,
  • Mathematical models of nanosyringes and other nanoscaled drug delivery systems,
  • Nanoparticle interactions with biological systems.

Successful applicants will be motivated, mathematically literate and be able to express themselves clearly both verbally and in written form.

Applicants should contact either Professor Jim Hill or Dr Barry Cox and provide a copy of their full curriculum vitae, a brief covering letter, and the names and contact details (including email addresses) of two referees supporting their application.
