Mathematical Biology PhD projects
University of Queensland

School of Mathematics and Physics

Posted on: Mon Aug 2015

PhD research projects are available in the School of Mathematics and Physics, University of Queensland in the area of mathematical modelling of biological tissues.

The projects will investigate the role of mechanical interactions between cells in determining the structure, morphology and functioning of different types of tissues. The projects will use mathematical models based on partial differential equations and/or stochastic models of interacting particles, and computer simulations, and will study the role of mechanical feed-back in tissue self-renewal, carcinogenesis and tumour growth. There is also opportunity to collaborate with biologists involved in related laboratory experiments.

The projects are suitable for graduates with background in quantitative disciplines such as mathematics, physics or similar. Some experience and/or interest in numerical computation may be useful, no previous background in biology is required at the start.

To apply send your CV and contact details of two references to Zoltan Neufeld:
