The Faculty of Health and Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation at the Queensland University of Technology in Australia offer scholarships in health, in 2019.
This is to complete a PhD or Master of Philosophy in an interdisciplinary environment with access to world-class researchers and cutting-edge facilities. Technology, innovation and commercialisation are integrated into the program.
A PhD challenges candidates to make a significant and original contribution to knowledge in the field by developing new ideas, or new ways of approaching existing problems. Working with an experienced supervisory team, candidates develop new theories, methodologies and models that may shape the future of the profession or discipline. A PhD candidate’s research must reveal high critical ability and powers of imagination and synthesis, and may be demonstrated in the form of new knowledge or significant or original adaptation, application and interpretation of existing knowledge.
