Apply for the University of Adelaide School of Chemical and Engineering Scholarships. The School of Chemical Engineering & Advanced Materials is offering a PhD Scholarship aimed to develop catalyst materials for future fuels by operando computation. Funded by an Australian Research Council Future Fellowship, this scholarship aims to support a full time PhD student who is undertaking research in using solar and wind sources to turn renewable energy sources to liquid fuels.
This scholarship is open to domestic or on shore international applicants who are acceptable as candidates for a PhD degree at the University of Adelaide. The PhD research project aims to design catalyst materials for the production of future fuels (green ammonia, hydrocarbon and alcohol). Using carbon and nitrogen as energy carriers, these fuels are generated from renewable sources such as wind or solar; they are safe, reliable, and possess high energy density
This programme is funded for 3 years with possible six month extension. Applicants must have an academic background in clean energy, Physical Chemistry, Programming and Computational Chemistry
If successfully selected, you will receive the following benefits
- The selected PhD student will receive a scholarship grant worth $28,597 per annum (tax-free)
- You will have access to high performance computers
- The opportunity to work alongside world leading researchers in the field
- Researchers will have the opportunity to publish their contributions and impact our society.
To be eligible, you need to fulfill the following criteria:
- Applicants for this programme must have a background in computational chemistry or molecular modelling.
- You must demonstrate a big interest in clean energy, Physical Chemistry, Programming and Computational Chemistry are encouraged to apply.
- Candidates must be excellent achieving students who posses a Bachelor or Master of Chemical Engineering or an Honours or Masters degree in a related discipline.
- You must display well-developed written and verbal communication skills will be considered favourably.
- Students who hold a degree in Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Materials Engineering, Physics, will be considered favorably.
Applicants must first complete an expression of interest for the programme. You must communicate this information via email to Yan Jiao: [email protected]
Along with your expression of Interest, you must also include a copy of your most recent CV and your diplomas and transcripts of records from previous academic experiences.
The selection committee will perform an initial eligibility assessment, and one you make it through this process, you will be invited to apply for the programme
You will formally lodge an application for admission and scholarship via the Adelaide Graduate Centre ‘How to Apply’ link. Application dates are listed on the website.
