Dear Colleagues,

[Please forward this to any interested students]
We invite well-qualified students of any nationality to apply to the PhD program at Curtin University's Institute of Radio Astronomy (CIRA) based in Perth, Australia, to work on radio astronomy or radio astronomy engineering. We have a wide range of potential PhD projects to choose from. <https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/9UIXCMwGxOtlxp63HwMSxF?domain=astronomy.curtin.edu.au>
CIRA forms one half of the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR <https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/50iQCNLJyQURVYM3H4sZ3h?domain=icrar.org>), a joint venture between Curtin University and The University of Western Australia. Curtin University operates the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA <https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/TdKDCOMKzVTG5D2xskU0fN?domain=mwatelescope.org>), the precursor to the low frequency component of the Square Kilometre Array (SKA <https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/YV4hCP7LAXflvB5XHjn00l?domain=astronomers.skatelescope.org>), 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 (hardware and software) for the SKA.

Please note this is a two stage process:

Review the projects listed here <https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/9UIXCMwGxOtlxp63HwMSxF?domain=astronomy.curtin.edu.au/>. Prospective students should contact potential supervisors by 15th August 2020 with a detailed CV, transcripts of undergraduate (and Masters’) studies and a paragraph on why they are interested in that project. Unfilled projects will remain open until the scholarship deadline in step 2. 
Once confirmed as the preferred choice for a given project by a supervisor, students may proceed with the scholarship application.  Detailed instructions on how to apply for the Research Training Programme (RTP) scholarship may be found here <https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/ntqVCQnMBZfxBnNPIr7Euk?domain=scholarships.curtin.edu.au>. The deadline for the scholarship application is 1st September 2020.

CIRA is committed to equity and diversity and encourages applications from all qualified candidates. 

Please send any general enquiries to AppPhD_CIRA at curtin.edu.au <mailto:AppPhD_CIRA at curtin.edu.au>.
