PHD Scholarship Opportunity

Deadline: 09 Feb 2020


About the PHD
This research project, in collaboration with the Australian Engineered Fasteners and Anchors Council (AEFAC), will investigate the use of advanced fastening systems used in safety-critical applications. A particular focus will be placed on the structural performance of such fastening systems installed and/or loaded in early age concrete, where the behaviour of the substrate and hence the performance of the fastening system may be different from those of mature concrete. The research will investigate a range of approaches to solving the challenges, such as nonlinear numerical modelling and statistical analysis of the experimental results that will be generated during the course of this research. You will be supervised by a team of experts from both the School of Engineering at Edith Cowan University and AEFAC. The successful applicant will receive a scholarship of $28,420 per year for 3.5 years (all Tax Free), tuition fee sponsorship value at $33,250 per year and overseas health cover, if you are an international student.


Interested candidates are encouraged to please contact Dr Alireza Mohyeddin on [email protected] directly, as applications will not be accepted through alternate avenues such as online job sites. Upon sending through your application to Dr Mohyeddin, please include a cover letter describing your interest in the field, an up-to-date CV, an academic transcript, and relevant supporting documents of prior research (for example a copy of your best publication).

Key Requirements:

The successful applicant must possess either a Bachelor with First or Upper Second class Honours or a Master by Research Degree and have strong competencies in finite element analysis, concrete material and fracture mechanics.

Closing Date:
Scholarship applications close on Sunday 9th February 2020 at 11.30pm AWST.

Please Note: Applications are open to both Australian and International candidates
