The University of Sydney invites applications for the Soil Organic Carbon Postgraduate Research Scholarship in Australia for the 2022/23 academic session.
This scholarship aims to support a student who focuses their research on the stability of organic carbon associated with different clay minerals and artificial soils. This is achieved using advanced spectroscopic studies including
- nanoscale secondary ion mass spectrometry (NanoSIMS),
- Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry (FT-ICR-MS),
- synchrotron based – scanning transmission X-ray microscopy (STXM) and
- X-ray absorption fine structure (XAFS).
Worth of Award
The scholarship provides $28, 854 per annum to support a PhD student to conduct research on the stability of organic carbon in clay and artificial materials at the Faculty of Science.
To be eligible you must:
- be a domestic or international student
- have an unconditional offer of admission or be enrolled in a full-time PhD at the Faculty of Science
- be willing to research in the prescribed area in the School of Life and Environmental Sciences
- hold an honours degree (first class or second class upper) or a master’s degree in a related field with a substantial research component with related disciplines
- have a background in soil chemistry and experience in using spectroscopic techniques, such as FT-ICR-MS), and FTIR for analysing soil organic matter
- have Professor Balwant Singh as your primary supervisor.
