We have a state-of-the-art 3 tesla magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) facility (including two MRI scanners) primarily for research of the human brain. Research projects undertaken at the institute include development of image acquisition and analysis techniques. Such technical development projects usually require students of one or more of physics, mathematics, computer science, informatics, engineering and statistics. Other research at the institute includes application of techniques recently developed, to answer both basic science and clinical research questions. These projects often require students of one or more of neurology, neuroscience, psychology, physiology and medical imaging.

A selection of the neuroimaging student projects currently available is provided in this PDF document.

A limited number of top-up scholarships are available to suitable candidates, for specific projects to be undertaken at our institute. It is expected that candidates undertaking research in basic science and engineering disciplines will have a first or high second-class honours degree.

International students should note that scholarships do not cover the substantial international student fees levied by Australian universities, however many universities have a limited number of competitive fee-waiver scholarships. See for example The University of Melbourne Future Students website.
