We invite applications from exceptional graduate students seeking to undertake a PhD in regenerative neurobiology starting in 2018.


  • The PhD candidate will join Dr Merson's group to examine how age-related epigenetic changes in neural stem and progenitor cells influence their capacity to remyelinate the brain. 
  • The successful PhD candidate will be granted an RTP Stipend (formerly Australian Postgraduate Award), 2017 rate A$26,682 p.a. for three years, with a possible 6 month extension. 
  • For this particular scholarship, applicants must be Australian residents.
