Mechanical and Medical Engineering opportunities exist

The Innovative Cardiovascular Engineering and Technology Laboratory (ICETLab –, based at The Prince Charles Hospital in Chermside, QLD, is developing new artificial heart technology.

Our young, yet highly experienced, team of researchers includes engineers and medical specialists from various fields. Together, we have set up a strong collaborative network which incorporates institutions in Australia, Germany, Japan, Malaysia, UK and USA.

We invite applications for an internship in mechanical engineering. Unfortunately, this internship is unpaid unless the applicant is able to secure funding through their host institution / external grant agencies. Applicants can be Australian-based or international students, and will have the opportunity to work on a variety of projects, such as the following:

  • Hydraulic impeller design
  • Holistic CFD simulation
  • Pump miniaturization
  • Materials selection
  • Manufacturing techniques


Essential Criteria:

  • Currently completing / finished a degree in biomedical engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering or related discipline.
  • CAD experience


Preferred Criteria:

  • Strong background in mechanical engineering
  • Knowledge of manufacturing techniques
  • Knowledge of pump design
  • Experience with CFD
  • Basic knowledge of human anatomy
