Ph.D Research Scholarship in Contaminant Hydrology at the University of Sydney

The University of Sydney is delighted to offer a post-graduate scholarship for any students who will be undertaking doctoral research in Contaminant Hydrology. Eligible candidates should have relevant background of knowledge. The winning  students will receive benefit of $25,849 per year. To apply, the application packet must be received due to 26 September 2015.

Scholarship Description
A full time postgraduate scholarship is available for a suitably qualified candidate to undertake research studies leading to a PhD in Environmental Engineering within the School of Civil Engineering.  The project is broadly covering contaminant hydrology, but emphasises hydrological and biogeochemical reactive flows within the area of environmental modeling. The aim of the project is to develop computational capabilities to track contaminants (e.g., from various sources including agrochemicals) and to assess bioremediation and phytoremediation potentials in soils.

Value and Tenure
The successful candidate may expect to receive $25,849 per year which tenable for three years and can be extended, with a possible further extension of 6 months, subject to satisfactory progress.

Level and Area of Studies
Post-graduate research in Contaminant Hydrology.

Place of Study
At the University of Sydney, Australia.

Eligibility and Criteria
Applicants should have a background in theoretical and applied hydrology, eco-hydrology, and soil physics and be willing to learn mathematical concepts needed to implement advanced computational tools . Applicants must also be interested in multidisciplinary approaches to environmental engineering, which may include chemistry, biology, and computational sciences. Consideration will be given in order of priority to applicants who:

  • have a Master’s degree or equivalent in Mathematics, Environmental Engineering, Agricultural Science, Biology;
  • can demonstrate a potential for research excellence;
  • have relevant past experience and training. Applications are open to domestic and international students.

Applicants’ Nationality
There is no nationality restriction.
