School of Civil Engineering
Postgraduate Scholarship in Contaminant Hydrology
Sciences & Engineering
The proposed project is broadly covering contaminant hydrology, but emphasizes hydrological and biogeochemical reactive flows within the area of environmental engineering modeling. The aim of the project is to develop computational capabilities to track contaminants (e.g., salinity, agrochemicals, etc.) and assess bioremediation and phytoremediation potentials in soils.
The Scholarship is open to both international and domestic applicants who have an unconditional offer for full-time enrolment into a PhD degree within the School of Civil Engineering at the University of Sydney by the Scholarship deadline. A student with a conditional offer of admission may also be considered providing it only relates to the successful completion of their studies and their academic results to date make them competitive to apply.
Applicants must have a masters degree in engineering, physics or applied mathematics to be eligible. The applicant should also specifically have a background in theoretical and applied hydrology, ecohydrology, and soil physics, and should be willing to learn mathematical concepts needed to implement advanced computational tools and experimental works,in addition to a willingness to learn multidisciplinary approaches to environmental engineering, which may include chemistry, biology, and computational sciences as well as experimental techniques and practices.
Those with previous research experience (non-industry based) will be given priority.
The Research Supervisor will award the Scholarship on the basis of an applicant’s academic record, area of research, CV, cover letter outlining their interest in the area of contaminant hydrology, and feedback from two academic referees.
The Scholarship will provide a stipend (living allowance) equivalent to the current year RTP rate ($26,682.00 p.a. in 2017) and tuition fee for a successful international applicant. Funding is for a period of 3 years with a possible 6 month extension subject to satisfactory academic performance. No other amount is payable.
In the event a student receives an alternative scholarship from the University of Sydney that covers a stipend and fees (for international students), this Scholarship will be terminated in its current form.
Further information on the area of research can be obtained from Professor Federico Maggi in the School of Civil Engineering at: email@example.com.
