The Polymer Group advertises its research and support positions on the University of Queensland's UQ Jobs website - please refer to both the Academic and General Staff Vacancies.

PhD and Honours Projects

The Polymer Group offers exciting PhD and Honours projects in a number of areas of polymer chemistry and biomaterials science. A listing of available projects can be seen here.

Unfortunately the group cannot generally offer financial support to students, although top-ups for scholarship holders are occasionally provided. Interested PhD candidates are directed to details of the general UQ scholarships and financial assistance.

Honours students are generally enrolled through the School of Molecular and Microbial Sciences.

Cotutelles with French Universities

The University of Queensland is one of 10 Australian universities participating in an international initiative allowing PhD students to study at both an Australian and a French university. A Cotutelle de Thèse can be undertaken between participating French universities and the University of Queensland, and involves the student spending at least 12 months at each institution. The Polymer Group has excellent links with the Laboratoire des Matériaux Macromoléculaires at INSA in Lyon, and wishes to encourage joint PhD projects with this excellent group. However, enquiries from students wishing to study at other universities in France are also welcome. Details of the cotutelle scheme can be found at the UQ Policies and Procedures Library (PPL).
