We offer postgraduate training as the Department of Medical Biology of the University of Melbourne. At any one time, around 60 full-time PhD students are enrolled.
We offer a number of student research project places each year under the institute's research themes of cancer, chronic inflammatory diseases and infectious diseases.
Once you have contacted and agreed a potential PhD project with a prospective PhD supervisor(s) at the institute, you need to lodge an application.
Both local (Australian and New Zealand citizens) and international PhD students who are accepted by the institute must gain their own scholarships.
