A PhD scholarship is available in the Department of Mechanical Engineering
at the University of Melbourne. Candidates should possess a degree in
biomedical engineering or a related field and have an interest in
multidisciplinary research. A strong background in mechanics with
computational skills and laboratory experience in cell/molecular biology
and biochemistry is preferred.

The project aims to improve our current understanding of the effects of
dynamic joint loading on the development and progression of knee
osteoarthritis. The focus is on subchondral bone and cartilage at the
microstructure and cellular levels, and how mechanical forces signal
chemical and biological responses.

For more information or to apply, please contact or send a CV to Dr. Peter
Lee at pvlee@unimelb.edu.au
