Advanced Radiopaque Coatings for Medical Applications

This Earmarked Scholarship project is aligned with a recently awarded Category 1 research grant. It offers you the opportunity to work with leading researchers and contribute to large projects of national significance.

Supervisor – Dr Jeffrey Venezuelaj.venezuela@uq.edu.au

In this project, advanced coatings to improve the radiopacity of medical microcomponents will be developed. The coatings will be characterized and analyzed for substrate adhesion,  microstructure, mechanical properties and radiopacity.

Preferred educational background

Applications will be judged on a competitive basis taking into account the applicant's previous academic record, publication record, honours and awards, and employment history.

A working knowledge of nanomaterials and polymer science would be of benefit to someone working on this project.

The applicant will demonstrate academic achievement in the field(s) of materials science and engineering and the potential for scholastic success.

A background or knowledge of coating technologies is highly desirable.

*The successful candidate must commence by Research Quarter 3, 2021. You should apply at least 3 months prior to the research quarter commencement date. International applicants may need to apply much earlier for visa reasons.
