  Engineering Enzymes to address global plastic pollution problems
  Assoc Prof L Connal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Enzymes are nature’s catalysts, they perform highly specific chemical and physical functions from the generation of movement to the synthesis of DNA.
  Investigation of Tectonic Effects on Pipeline Stabilty
  Dr S Ullah
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pipelines make an important group of structures called lifelines, as they support conducting water, oil and gas essential for life.
  Lighting the Way - Adventures in Fruit Spectroscopy
  Dr P Subedi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Join Northern Australia's agricultural innovator, CQU's Institute for Future Farming Systems - a world-leader in delivering practical solutions which are bolstering the productivity, profitability and sustainability of the horticulture sectors.
  5 PhD Scholarships in Economics

Funding Type

PhD Type

Collaboration between Charles Darwin University and Treasury & Finance in the Northern Territory Government. Researching. Economics, the Environment, Law, Social and Public Policy, and Changing demographics.
  Data Analytics For Pore Water Pressure - New Tools For Sustainable Groundwater and Engineering Projects
  Prof W Timms
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This new PhD scholarship will develop advanced pore pressure analysis for groundwater systems with engineering applications in civil construction, mining operations and water supply systems.
  Conservation Genomics and Epigenomics of Fragmented and Declining Populations
  Prof L Beheregaray
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for a bright candidate for one PhD position associated with the project. “The evolutionary potential of fragmented and declining populations”.
  Understanding resistance and tolerance to chytrid fungal disease in amphibians to improve conservation
  Dr L Grogan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will involve working with captive animals (Australian barred frogs and tadpoles, including the endangered Fleay’s barred frog) to understand host responses to infection and mechanisms of resistance and tolerance to the devastating fungal disease, frog chytridiomycosis.
  PhD Scholarship in Neuroecology - Investigating the neural bases of animal behaviour in the context of its habitat and ecology.
  Prof S P Collin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our Research Laboratory lies at the intersection of two major fields of biology (Neurobiology. the study of the nervous system, and Ecology.
  Elemental and isotopic fractionation of chalcophile elements in the lithosphere
  Prof S Foley, Prof O Alard
Application Deadline: 20 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project entails an analytical and experimental investigation of elemental and isotopic fractionation of chalcophile elements between minerals (sulfides and silicates) and melts and how they relate to volatile elements.
  Experimental melting of the Earth’s mantle in the diamond stability field
  Prof S Foley
Application Deadline: 20 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our knowledge of the melt compositions that can be produced in the Earth’s mantle is very good in the depth range up to 130km, but much more rudimentary at higher pressures because experiments have not yet been done following a close raster of realistic melting conditions.
  Geochemistry of Germanium in igneous rocks, minerals and melts
  Prof S Foley, Prof O Alard, Assoc Prof E Belousova, Prof D Jacob
Application Deadline: 20 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent analytical developments in trace element geochemistry have made it possible to accurately analyse the fractionation of germanium from silicon during partial melting of rocks and in igneous crystal fractionation series.
  Metasomatic products of alkaline melt infiltration in the continental lithosphere
  Prof S Foley
Application Deadline: 20 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alkaline incipient melts produced by melting at 100-200km depth beneath continents carry dissolved H2O and CO2 into the shallower mantle where they solidify, modifying the sources of later volcanic melts.
  Stability of minerals containing potassium and water in deeply subducted continents
  Prof S Foley
Application Deadline: 20 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In large continental collision zones such as the Himalayas, continental crust may be pushed down to depths as great as 200–300km where the usual minerals of the continental crust are no longer stable.
  Infectious disease and adaptation to global change
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global change is predicted to result in both rapidly changing environments and dramatic changes in disease outbreaks. Key to predicting winners and losers under the nexus of infection and global change is any mismatch between hosts and pathogens in their thermal tolerances and adaptive potential.
  Male-female differences the evolution of infectious disease
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The science that guides our understanding of health and infectious disease routinely overlooks the pervading impact of sex.
