PhD Students Projects available

Are you interested in joining the ICR Group for a research project? Visit Student Projects to find Capstone, Summer, MSc and PhD research opportunities.

We are currently looking for two PhD students in:

New Equipment for the MSE Mechanobiology Lab

Our group head Dr Kathryn Stok, together with Dr Vijay Rajagopal, head of the Cell Structure and Mechanobiology Group, have received MSE Strategic Investment Funds. The funds will be used to purchase critical pieces of laboratory equipment for the new Melbourne School of Engineering Mechanobiology Lab founded by Kathryn and Vijay.

2018 ARC Discovery Project Grant for Dr Kathryn Stok

Dr Kathryn Stok, ICR Group Head, has secured 3-years of funding from the Australian Research Council for her project “Quantitative micro-computed tomography for mechanobiological measurement”.

This project aims to investigate novel measurement approaches for complex cartilage and joint systems by utilising engineering and software design, imaging physics and musculoskeletal biology. Accurate measurement of these living biological systems in action expects to generate new knowledge and a fundamental understanding of their mechanobiological processes. This project will enhance understanding of this complex system and facilitate our capacity to innovate functional solutions in biomedical engineering and biosciences.
