Honours, Masters and PhD Projects
With increasing numbers of university leavers, having the highest and best possible degree ensures that you have the most competitive edge for a scientific research job or for future fellowship opportunities. The RCID has a number of opportunities for students interested in scientific training and developing their laboratory skills through Honours, Masters or PhD research.
The projects available combine multidisciplinary state-of-the-art approaches, incorporating microbiology, genetics, biochemistry, and biophysics, to investigate the complex interaction between host and pathogen.
All of our projects will help you develop a strong range of scientific skills that will enable you to undertake further studies or help you embark on a career in research science. For further details go the Honours webpage or the Graduate Centre. For specific research training opportunities, please contact the laboratory heads of those labs currently training students.
