A full-time postgraduate scholarship is available for a suitably qualified candidate with a good honours degree in the geography, geology, geochemistry or related disciplines, to undertake research studies leading to a PhD in Geosciences. The project is to investigate the use of stable isotopes from authigenic carbonates in tropical volcanic crater-lakes for reconstructing change and variability in the Asian monsoon.
Applicants should have a particular interest in geochemistry, palaeolimnology, and palaeoclimatology. Applicants must be Australian citizens, Australian permanent residents or New Zealand citizens.
The scholarship is valued at $22,860 per annum (tax exempt) and may be renewed for up to three years, subject to satisfactory progress.
