The Monash Doctoral Program opens up a world of possibilities. Some of our graduates have gone on to careers in other great universities across the globe where they continue to push the bounds of knowledge and innovation. Others join major corporations or form companies of their own. Still others use their expert knowledge and skill to advise governments of all sizes or work for bodies such as the United Nations.

Whether your vision is local or global, a PhD in Biological Sciences consists of a world-class research and thesis component, combined with training that will support and enhance your contribution as a graduate researcher and prepare you to make an impact in industry, academia, government, and the broader community. We aim to develop your skills as future leaders in science and society and help you work with internationally-recognised researchers on a wide range of high-impact topics from genes to ecosystems to landscapes.
