This scholarship has been established by the Bioengineering Research Laboratory at the School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Sydney to support a PhD student who is undertaking research in Computational Modelling for designing optimum structural, mechanical, and physical properties of materials for a heart valve.
In this project, fluid structure simulations of flow through a heart valve will be performed to understand the impact of design parameters and the properties of novel materials. There will be an opportunity to perform experimental work to collect flow data for use in model validation. Also, there is the possibility to be involved in other projects for in silico gut models.
The scholarship is partially funded by an Australian Research Council (ARC) grant and partially funded by the Faculty of Engineering.

The Scholarship will provide an annual stipend allowance equivalent to the University of Sydney’s Research Training Program (RTP) stipend rate (indexed on 1 January each year), for up to three years, subject to satisfactory academic performance.
The stipend allowance is partially funded by ARC and partially funded the Faculty of Engineering.
Academic course fees are also provided for a successful international applicant, for up to twelve research periods, subject to satisfactory academic performance.
Subject to funding availability, an extension of the stipend and academic course fees may be possible for up to six months.
Please visit our website website for more information about the application process.
You will also need to apply for a Research Training Program (RTP) Stipend Scholarship (domestic or international). Outcomes will be provided within eight to twelve weeks from the time your online scholarship application form is received.
