PhD Scholarship in Computational Magnetic Resonance Imaging at UQ in Australia 2021

The University of Queensland in Australia 2021 offers a PhD scholarship in Computational Magnetic Resonance Imaging in the 2021/22 academic session.

Detailed understanding of the human brain requires the integration of information from different spatial scales and modalities. Major research initiatives, such as the ten-year Human Brain Project and the BRAIN Initiative, have identified the need to merge information across all levels of brain organization to arrive at a comprehensive and coherent model of the brain. Although there has been substantial progress in understanding the individual levels of brain organization, it is still unclear how we can link these different scales to obtain a thorough understanding of brain structure and function. Bridging the gap between different levels of brain organization, such as linking brain microstructure on a cellular level observable using ex vivo histology to macroscopic properties observable using in vivo magnetic resonance imaging requires advanced methodologies, large datasets, and developing new computational frameworks.

This PhD project aims to build computational models for characterising tissue properties from multi-modal magnetic resonance imaging data. The candidate will enroll through the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering.

How to Apply

There is no separate application for scholarship because you will have the opportunity to request scholarship consideration on the application for admission.

Before submitting an application you should:

  • check your eligibility
  • prepare your documentation
  • contact Dr Steffen Bollmann ([email protected]) to discuss your suitability for this scholarship

When you apply, please ensure that under the scholarships and collaborative study section you:

  • Select ‘My higher degree is not collaborative’
  • Select ‘I am applying for, or have been awarded a scholarship or sponsorship’.
  • Select ‘Other’, then ‘Research Project Scholarship’ and type in ‘BOLLMANN IMAGING’ in the ‘Name of scholarship’ field.
