About the job

You will contribute to research projects in the field of advanced drug delivery science that are supported by the ARC Centre of Excellence for Convergent Bio-Nano and Technology (CBNS), and under the broad direction of the Head of Prestidge Research Group in order to achieve defined objectives and test research hypothesis by undertaking pilot studies, reviewing literature, and drafting proposals and research grant applications.
