RMIT University International PhD Scholarship in 3D Printing of Mg Alloys for Biomedical Applications

  • Phd
  • Up to $31,000 p.a.

Seeking highly motivated PhD student who is interested in the use of advanced materials in biomedical applications using additive manufacturing technologies. Fresh graduates from any engineering background are welcomed to apply.

Magnesium alloys are increasingly used as new generation biomaterials due to their ability to dissolve into the body fluids after bone regeneration. However, due to the complex structures of bones, it is difficult to manufacture magnesium implants via conventional manufacturing techniques such as casting. This project will study the feasibility of using additive manufacturing (AM) technique to manufacture magnesium alloys for biomedical applications.
