Applications are invited for a PhD scholarship in Applied Mathematics at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia. The student will be supervised by Dr Christopher Green – holder of a DECRA (Discovery Early Career Researcher Award) Fellowship of the ARC (Australian Research Council) – in the Department of Mathematics.
The purpose of the PhD project is to explore and develop new methods and theory for ideal fluid motion on surfaces with holes (compact Riemann surfaces of genus greater than zero).
Macquarie University is a public research university based in Sydney, Australia, in the suburb of Macquarie Park. Founded in 1964 by the New South Wales Government, it was the third university to be established in the metropolitan area of Sydney.
If English is not your first language then you will need to show that your English language skills are at a high enough level to succeed in your studies.
- Application Deadline: May 7, 2018
- Course Level: Scholarship is available for pursuing PhD programme.
- Study Subject: Scholarship is awarded in the field of Applied Mathematics. The applicant will work on the project ‘Towards new theory for fluid motion on surfaces with holes’.
- Scholarship Award: The PhD scholarship is for 3 years and will be funded by the ARC DECRA grant (DE180101098) of Dr Green. The successful candidate will be based in the Department of Mathematics at Macquarie University for the full 3-year duration of the project. There are travel funds available for the student to present their work at conferences. The student base salary can be supplemented by teaching duties such marking and tutorial delivery.
- Number of Scholarships: Not Known
- Scholarship can be taken in Australia
Eligibility for the Scholarship:
- Eligible Countries: Citizens of Australia are eligible to apply.
- Entrance Requirements: The successful candidate should have completed a Masters degree (or equivalent) in mathematics or the physical sciences. A basic knowledge of complex analysis, partial differential equations and fluid dynamics is desirable, as would any prior research experience, e.g. participation in a summer vacation research programme.
- English Language Requirements: If English is not your first language then you will need to show that your English language skills are at a high enough level to succeed in your studies.
How to Apply:
The application procedure contains 2 steps. First, applicants must submit an application containing: a cover letter, a CV, one or two letters of recommendation, copies of degree certificates, and transcripts of examination results, via email. The deadline is 7 May 2018. Second, short-listed candidates will be interviewed via Skype for approximately 20 minutes, after which a decision on the preferred candidate will be made. The preferred candidate will then need to be formally accepted by Macquarie University.
