ACAMAR SKA PhD Scholarship Scheme
ACAMAR and CAASTRO are delighted to offer China SKA PhD scholarships and PhD travel scholarships to selected Australian universities and research institutes. These scholarships, of which up to 20 per year are available, are funded by the China Scholarship Council (CSC) and managed by the National Astronomical Observatories of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. There will be two rounds per year, although only one round for the full 4-yr scholarships. This scheme is open to students of Chinese nationality up to 35 years old.
This scholarship round will fund visits of up to 2 years to Australian universities and research institutes (including CSIRO). The PhD student is required to be enrolled in China at one of: the University of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Peking University, Tsinghua University, Beijing Normal University, Nanjing University or the University of Science and Technology of China at Hefei. The student may also enrol at a suitable host University in Australia (which requires a prior bilateral agreement to be in place). The CSC will provide a AUD$20,700 pa living allowance for up to 2 years in Australia and return travel.
ACAMAR SKA Fellowship Scheme
ACAMAR and the NAOC will co-fund at least one ACAMAR SKA Postdoctoral Fellow to be based at an Australian university or research institute for up to 2 years.
