UNSW Sydney calls for applications for the PhD Scholarship in Numerical Simulation for Maritime Platforms for the 2022/23 academic year.
A PhD scholarship is available immediately for studies focused on the structural behaviour and response of maritime platforms, such as commercial and naval vessels and offshore platforms, when exposed to severe sea-states. The effects of structural deterioration due to fatigue and corrosion will also be investigated.
The research project is funded through an Australian Research Council (ARC) Linkage Project and by industry partners with the aim of developing evidence-based computational tools for the management of maritime platforms exposed to both time-dependent harsh operational environments and structural deterioration.
Worth of Award
The scholarship is worth $31,000 – $37,000 per annum (tax free) for three years with a possible 6 month extension.
A relocation allowance of up to $2,000 may be payable after arrival at UNSW to the successful applicant living outside Sydney to recover travel and removal expenses.
International and domestic candidates satisfying the following requirements are eligible to apply:
- Have a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Civil, Mechanical or Aerospace Engineering, Naval Architecture accredited by either the Institution of Engineers Australia (IEAust) or the Royal Institute of Naval Architects (RINA). The Bachelor’s degree should preferably be at a level of Honours Class 1 or 2 (2/1 or 2/2);
- Able to work independently as well as collaboratively in a team environment with other researchers and the technical staff of the project partners;
- Preferably have some experience in numerical modelling; and
- Be competent in spoken and written English.
How to Apply
Applicants should email their applications to Professor Chongmin Song copied to Mr Damian McGuckin. The application should include:
- A curriculum vitae (CV) of four (4) pages (or less) detailing your academic qualifications, your practical experience and other relevant information;
- Copies of your academic qualifications, including undergraduate and postgraduate and transcripts of subject studied and results;
- A statement why you would like to be involved in this particular project;
- Contact details (only) of two (2) referees, i.e. their names, affiliations and email addresses. (do not send copies of references); and
- A statement of when you could begin your studies if appointed.
Applications for the PhD Scholarship in Numerical Simulation remain open until the scholarship is awarded.
