PhD and Masters Degrees by Research
The Centre welcomes applications from prospective Masters and PhD students. To be considered, you will need to be fluent in English and have achieved excellent results in your undergraduate studies. For example, in Australia a First Class Honours degree or a Second Class Honours Division 2 is expected, a GPA of more than 3.5 in the US and Canada, or a CPI of more than 8.6 in India.
Applications will be welcomed from those with a strong interest in computational materials science. Typically, our research students have undergraduate degrees in such disciplines as materials science/engineering, physics, chemistry or applied mathematics. A broad range of scholarships to support national and international students is available.
To apply, please email your CV, together with certified copies of your undergraduate transcripts and a brief statement of your general research interests, to the Director: Professor Irina Belova: Irina.Belova@newcastle.edu.au.
Summer Scholarships for Undergraduate Students
The Centre provides a number of summer scholarships for undergraduate students to undertake research projects. The students will normally be enrolled in an engineering degree at the University of Newcastle, but applicants from other disciplines are encouraged to apply. The research positions are of 10-weeks duration, starting in December, and are open to students from within Australia.
To be eligible, you will need to have achieved excellent results in your Australian undergraduate studies (for example, an average grade of distinction or better).
The Centre will provide a living allowance of A$500 per week and reimbursement will be provided for a return economy air ticket.
