To Whom it May Concern,

It would be greatly appreciated if the below could be forwarded on to keen astronomy (and even comp-sci) students who you think might be interested in doing a PhD.

All the best,



PhD scholarships in astrophysics at the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research, UWA

The University of Western Australia (UWA) node of the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR) invites applications for its PhD program.

ICRAR is one of Australia’s top astronomical research institutes. Established in 2009 as a high profile equal joint venture between Curtin University and UWA, ICRAR is a leading organization in the international Square Kilometre Array project.

ICRAR/UWA hosts a vibrant and friendly research environment where PhD students carry out cutting-edge projects in observational and theoretical astrophysics, often including work in "Big Data" methodologies and technologies. ICRAR/UWA researchers play leading roles in programs that exploit state-of-the-art radio telescopes (e.g. ASKAP), exquisite multi-wavelength datasets (e.g. GAMA, SAMI), and the latest galaxy formation models run on powerful HPC facilities, such as the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre.

Situated on the Swan River, UWA is one of Australia’s most picturesque campuses. Its open courtyards lush and verdant, are a place to study and relax, taking advantage of Perth’s beautiful climate.

A range of PhD scholarships are available, covering tuition fees, health insurance, living allowance support and research/travel expenses. For details about ICRAR/UWA's PhD program, including eligibility requirements and potential projects, follow the web links below.
