Accepting PhD Students

PhD projects

PhD projects are available on an ongoing basis in the areas of pharmaceuticals fate and effects in aquatic ecosystems, nutrient biogeochemistry and stream metabolism. Applicants would need to be self-funded or very competitive for highly sought after scholarships. Australian/NZ citizens would need one scholarship (Living expenses) whilst international students would need two scholarships - the second for tuition fees.
