Are you interested in doing a PhD focused on coral reef and associated systems (Great Barrier Reef) that involves investigating climate and environmental changes, sedimentology, ecology, geochemistry, numerical modelling and data science?? If so contact me right now.
The GRG has two fully funded PhD projects that are now available as part of two larger projects supported by the Australian Research Council (ARC). You will be part of large network of Australian and International research collaborators and advisors, address key questions in reef and climate science and learn latest techniques and methods across a range disciplines. These projects are also available to suitable and well qualified international candidates through a competitive process (i.e. stipend & tuition fees are both covered).
More details about the specific projects and application process are available at the links below:
- Controls on the Holocene evolution of the Great Barrier Reef: linking 4D numerical modeling and observational data
- Past climate and environmental impacts on Great Barrier Reef paleoecology over the past 9000 years
Check them out and please contact me directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like more details about these specific projects. Note the closing date for applications in this round is Dec 21, 2020.
Several other Hons, Masters and PhD projects are also available with the GRG that include the chance to work on a wealth of new data (multibeam, ROV & AUV imagery) and samples (sediments and rocks) just collected on four recent RV Falkor cruises to the GBR and Coral Sea this year. There is also the opportunity participate in several exciting upcoming research cruises on the RV Falkor (SGBR 2021 – Feb, 2021), RV Investigator (Project HALO – N GBR – July, 2022) and RV Sonne (Queensland Plateau – May, 2022).
Finally, feel free to pass this along to anyone you think might be interested in pursuing any of these exciting opportunities.
