PhD Opportunities

The project can commence any time during 2019 and will be developed in collaboration with the student. Teaching is not required for the duration of the PhD (3.5 years in Australia). Research funding as well as attendance in one conference per year is guaranteed.

Successful candidates will be fully funded for 3.5 years with an annual tax-free stipend of approximately $26,000 AUD, which includes tuition and medical cover. A fully funded PhD stipend is available for either an international student or a domestic student.
