Fully-funded PhD scholarships are available for excellent candidates to work with Prof. Malcolm Sambridge and Dr Andrew Valentine within the world-leading Seismology & Mathematical Geophysics group at the Research School of Earth Sciences, Australian National University. We seek applicants with a strong background in mathematics, statistics, physics or related disciplines, and do not necessarily expect prior experience in geophysics.
Topics of current interest include:
- Geophysical inverse theory;
- Applications of machine learning and data science within geophysics;
- Bayesian inference, especially in high-dimensional or highly non-linear settings.
In particular, thanks to generous support from the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), we have two opportunities for candidates who wish to develop novel inference and imaging techniques for addressing geophysical questions. You will adapt cutting-edge ideas from machine learning and statistics, and help us understand how they can be used to discover and manage Earth resources.
These scholarships include an enhanced stipend (AU $30k/yr) and funding for travel and professional development.
