PhD Opportunity – Development of translational 3D models for breast cancer research
Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, QLD Australia
Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation

This project aims to develop biologically relevant 3D cell culture models to uncover the cellular interactions in triple-negative breast cancer. A major goal will be the elucidation of the cellular and chemical interactions in triple-negative breast cancer which control its development and metastasis using state of the art cell culture and characterisation techniques. The model will then be assessed by the application of chemotherapeutics to determine clinical relevance.

Interested applicants should send an application package (in a single PDF file) via email with the subject line “PhD Applicant” to Dr. Bray ([email protected]).

The application package should contain:
•Cover letter indicating your past experience and interest in the project
•Full CV including the contact details of two references
