  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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  Image and Video Analytics with Deep Learning Models
  Dr S Chakraborty
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This focus of this project area is to develop deep Learning models such as Convolutional neural networks (CNN) models capable of performing image and video analysis including classification, segmentation, detection etc.
  Tackling energy efficiency issues in industrial crushing and grinding machinery (industry-sponsored PhD opportunity)
  Prof I Einav, Dr P Shelley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research project to tackle energy efficiency issues in industrial crushing and grinding machinery. Collaborative project between MolyCop (https://molycop.com/) and the University of Sydney (http://sydney.edu.au/).
  PhD Scholarship in Recycling of Fibre Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Composites
  Dr A Hadigheh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

By 2025, fibre composites will be a key waste stream worldwide. Current recycling methods are inept as they cause major reduction in mechanical and physical properties of recovered fibre.
  Chemistry Education and/or Science Communication Research
  Dr S George-Williams, Dr A Motion, Dr R Pullen, Assoc Prof S Schmid
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The area of research is flexible and the project can be designed to suit the interests of the successful candidate.
  High-Speed Millimetre Wave Wireless Communications
  Prof X Huang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Increasing demand for high speed wireless communications systems means that new signal processing algorithms and hardware implementations are necessary to meet low cost and high performance requirements.
