PhD applications are accepted throughout the year, but the closing dates for stipend and tuition scholarships are October 31st to start a course in first semester (February) and May 31st to start a course in second semester (July).

In addition to supporting applications for APA and Monash Graduate scholarships, I sometimes have a Dean's PhD scholarship to offer a student. Candidates must be highly motivated with a passion for research and an excellent undergraduate record and first class Honours degree. They must also be an Australian citizen or permanent resident. Please send a full CV together with the contact details of two referees if you are interested.

Post-Doctoral Studies

Potential post-docs are encouraged to apply for a position within the group only if they are able to bring their own funding with them. The Australian Research Council offer Discovery Early Career Researcher Awards. Applications for this extremely competitive scheme are typically due at the end of February each year, with funding awarded for a period of 3 years, commencing the following year.
