The Postgraduate Research Scholarship in Proteomic Changes from Nevus to Melanoma is funded by the University of Sydney. It is available to full time postgraduate research students interested in the use of state of the art proteomics techniques to study nevi and melanomas, because understanding the difference in protein expression between them may lead to discovering possible targets for early diagnosis and therapy.

Open to:

  • Applicants must be Australian citizens or Australian permanent residents.
  • Applicants must have an unconditional offer of admission for full time studies in either a Master of Philsophy or PhD within the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Sydney.
  • Applicants must be willing to undertake research in the use of state of the art proteomics techniques to study nevi and melanomas.
  • Applicants must hold a Honours degree or a Master's degree in a related field with a substantial research component or equivalent.

Value & Duration:

  • The scholarship will provide an annual stipend allowance of $26,682 per annum (indexed to the RTP rate) for up to three years for a PhD recipient, or two years for a Masters of Philsophy recipient, subject to satisfactory academic performance.
  • A PhD recipient may apply for an extension of up to six months. No extension is possible for a non-PhD recipient.
  • A supplementary stipend valued at between $2000 and $4000 annually, may be awarded to an outstanding recipient. The supplementary scholarship will have the same tenure as the primary scholarship. To be awarded the supplementary scholarship the recipient must have achieved:
  1. First Class Honours to obtain an annual supplementary amount of $2000; or
