The Centre for Astrophysics at the University of Southern Queensland is seeking applications for a fully-funded scholarship PhD position, to begin between 2022 November and 2023 February (flexible).  The stipend totals $32,000 AUD per year for 3 years, plus an allowance for computing and travel.  Details on the research interests in our Centre can be found at https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/0lndCQnMBZf64V9jBHxnjPY?domain=astrophysics.usq.edu.au<https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/0lndCQnMBZf64V9jBHxnjPY?domain=astrophysics.usq.edu.au>

Australia’s University of Southern Queensland is a top-100 Young University Rankings<https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/PTlgCROND2urPYQqnhNOAaW?domain=unisq.edu.au> multi-campus institution whose flagship top rated astronomical and space sciences research<https://dataportal.arc.gov.au/era/web/outcomes#/institution/USQ> is supported by a dedicated Centre for Astrophysics<https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/TWnDCVARKgCljBXo0hyGmlC?domain=unisq.edu.au> within the Institute for Advanced Engineering and Space Sciences<https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/2r0KCWLVXkUjw3xmzSnZ-Ky?domain=unisq.edu.au>.

For this special call, the position is funded by UniSQ through start-up funds associated with Dr. Simon Murphy<https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/-ndDCXLW2mUn7AGoBsmlik-?domain=astrophysics.usq.edu.au>’s Future Fellowship from the Australian Research Council.

The student will be expected to work on modelling the pulsations of intermediate-mass stars. The role will be focussed around data analysis and computational experimental design in an astrophysical context. There will also be opportunities to plan and analyse astrophysical observations.

Interested candidates should send a CV and contact details for one reference to Dr Simon Murphy (simon.murphy at usq.edu.au<mailto:simon.murphy at usq.edu.au>) by August 24th for full consideration.  UniSQ is committed to enhancing diversity in astrophysics, and we particularly welcome applications from women and traditionally under-represented groups.

Enquiries about the research in the Centre for Astrophysics can be directed to simon.murphy at usq.edu.au<mailto:simon.murphy at usq.edu.au>
