Dear ASA colleagues,

We invite well-qualified students of any nationality to apply to the PhD program at Curtin University's Institute of Radio Astronomy based in Perth, Australia.  A number of three-year PhD scholarships are available for students wishing to commence in 2016 and 2017. These scholarships attract a tax-free stipend of AUD$26,288 p.a. (2016 rates) and a waiver of tuition fees.

For details of the PhD research projects on offer please see http://astronomy.curtin.edu.au/research
Four scholarships will be awarded for projects focused on high-redshift galaxies, X-ray binary jets and radio source population studies; one will be in radio astronomy engineering and the remainder can be awarded across any of the advertised research projects.

Curtin University’s Institute of Radio Astronomy forms one half of the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR), a joint venture between Curtin University and The University of Western Australia. Curtin University operates the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA), the precursor to the low frequency component of the Square Kilometre Array (SKA),  and supports a large research group spanning radio astronomy (galactic, extragalactic), pulsars, accretion physics, studies of the Epoch of Reionisation (EoR), and radio astronomy engineering research including significant participation in developing systems for the SKA.

Interested applicants are requested to send an Expression of Interest (EOI) for one or more projects selected from those available, to AppPhD_CIRA at curtin.edu.au<mailto:AppPhD_CIRA at curtin.edu.au>

Your EOI must include a detailed CV, transcripts of undergraduate (and any Masters’) studies along with a 1-2 page statement of your research motivation, indicating which project(s) are of interest.  Students who have not completed their formal degree studies in English must submit an IELTS transcript that meets the University’s minimum entrance criteria (detailed here http://research.curtin.edu.au/postgraduate-research/future-research-stud...<http://research.curtin.edu.au/postgraduate-research/future-research-students/entry-requirements/>)

I am  happy to discuss this opportunity with interested applicants. I can be contacted via carole.jackson at curtin.edu.au<mailto:carole.jackson at curtin.edu.au>
