Why undertake a PhD in Computing, Information Technology or Mathematical Sciences at Flinders
With the guidance of an expert supervisor, take the opportunity to leverage Flinders’ extensive industry connections and plug into our $120 million hub of innovation and entrepreneurship at Tonsley.
Your chosen research area is flexible, and ultimately agreed between you and your supervisor. Areas of focus could include:
You will drive a project that creates valuable new scientific knowledge; finding solutions that will help to build a healthier, prosperous and more secure Australia.
Analyse the past or reprogram the future. Join us to pursue your passion, develop advanced research skills, explore multi-disciplinary problems and seek impactful answers to well-defined problems.
A PhD in Computer Science, Information Technology or Mathematical Sciences will position you as an expert in your area of specialisation. A PhD is a stepping stone to professional research or as a highly sought-after expert in the private or public sector in Australia or internationally. This prestigious degree will equip you with valuable skills in communications, time management and organisation transferrable to any role.
The Medical Device Research Institute (MDRI) aims to develop innovative solutions to a range of healthcare problems including: new assistive technologies to make rehabilitation more engaging and build independence for people living with impairments; developing personalised models and new medical devices to improve surgery successes and big data to better understand Australian health. To achieve this, we are bringing great minds together; engineers and clinicians, health researchers and web developers, designers and users, industry and government to collaborate on creative solutions to address global healthcare challenges.
The Flinders Digital Health Research Centre, concentrates on projects developing and deploying computational solutions which provide benefits to the management of health in numerous social and clinical settings, including home and workplace. Our emphasis is on empowering individuals through customising and personalising health information and processes. Projects cover a wide range of technical areas in health informatics including cybersecurity, data management and analysis, human-computer interaction, health software, messaging and terminologies, mHealth and social media and telehealth.
Flinders academic staff are recognised experts in their specialised Computing, Information Technology or Mathematical Sciences fields. They are embedded in real-world applications of research, with extensive knowledge, networks and industry partners to support PhD students and deliver exciting and valuable research outcomes.
