PhD Scholarships in Mathematics and Statistics
IntroductionThe ARC Centre of Excellence for Mathematics and Statistics of Complex Systems (MASCOS) makes available PhD Scholarships in Mathematics and Statistics. These are normally in the form of "top-up'' scholarships to those students already holding APRA scholarships, or equivalent, as detailed below. In very rare and exceptional cases a full scholarship may be payable. Applicants must first be accepted as PhD scholars at one of the MASCOS institutions, listed below, and be supervised by a MASCOS Chief Investigator. On the recommendation of the Chief Investigator, the student will be deemed a MASCOS scholar, and the scholarship awarded.
The MASCOS mission is to stimulate research in mathematical and statistical modelling of complex systems, to encourage cross-fertilisation of ideas and techniques in this field, and to apply this knowledge to the analysis of complex systems.
Successful applicants for MASCOS scholarships will hold them at participating MASCOS institutions. MASCOS research themes are: Critical Phenomena, Dynamical Systems, Risk Analysis and Complex Networks.
Specific research opportunities for PhD students at participating institutions are listed below.
The University of Melbourne
La Trobe University
The University of Queensland
PhD Scholarship DetailsThe MASCOS PhD Scholarships will be amongst the most attractive in the field. They will be at the rate of A$27,000 per annum, in the form of a top-up to an existing APRA scholarship or equivalent. Holders of these scholarships will also have a maintenance fund of A$3,000 per annum to be used for study-related expenses. It is anticipated that fee waivers will be available for PhD scholarship holders who are Australian citizens or Australian residents. International students should read the relevant section below.
Initial contact should be made either through the MASCOS Director, Professor Tony Guttmann (email: email@example.com), or one of MASCOS's component institutions:
