The Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES) brings together some of the foremost researchers in chemistry, materials science, physics, biology and mathematics in Australia to explore, develop and exploit a wide range of new materials. This ARC linkage project, a collaboration with Boston Scientific, has been awarded specifically to undertake research that will result in the construction of Advanced Materials for Stents to be used to bring unique capabilities to the field of stent design. A multi-component degradable stent system is expected to bring significant improvements in vascular therapeutic treatments.
The Centre draws its core expertise from its research partners: the University of Wollongong, Monash University, St Vincent’s Health, The University of Tasmania, Deakin University and La Trobe University. The successful candidate will become part of the Bionics program within the ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES) and carry out collaborative work with Boston Scientific, Assoc. Prof. Rob Kapsa at St. Vincents Hospital in Melbourne and Prof Maria Forsyth at Deakin University.
The candidate will conduct research in a supportive and intellectually stimulating environment and will be required to exchange ideas and problems with the current team of diverse researchers and research students. Strong motivation and keenness to publish in peer-reviewed journals and in national as well as international conferences are highly desirable.
