PhD Scholarships - Photonics of Spider Silks

  • 100% tuition fee
  • Deadline: May 20, 2017
Visit Scholarship Website

Opportunities exist for students to research the photonics and optics of spider silks and webs. As a natural, nanocomposite, self-assembled dielectric material; certain spider silks are high optical quality fibres with high birefringence, high dispersion and high optical nonlinearity. They are biocompatible and have potential for use in a variety of sensors. Projects can be different combinations of theoretical simulations, research of micro-optical techniques to measure the optical properties, nanophotonics, micro- and nano-scale microscopy, and photonics applications of silks.

Eligibility

Master of research with 10 months project or equivalent.

Benefits

PhD scholarships that can support potential candidates cover the national/international fees (International: 32,000 AUD/yr), and provide an annual stipend of ~26,600 AUD. The PhD candidature is supported with up to 15,000 AUD for travel and/or research costs over the full period of enrolment.
