The University of Western Australia (UWA) node of the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR) invites applications for its PhD program from international students to start in 2023. 

ICRAR is one of Australia’s top astronomical research institutes. Established in 2009 as a high profile equal joint venture between Curtin University and UWA, ICRAR is a leading organization in the international Square Kilometre Array project. 

ICRAR/UWA hosts a vibrant and friendly research environment where PhD students carry out cutting-edge projects in observational and theoretical astrophysics, often including work in "Big Data" methodologies and technologies. ICRAR/UWA researchers play leading roles in programs that exploit state-of-the-art radio telescopes (e.g. ASKAP), such as WALLABY and DINGO, exquisite multi-wavelength datasets (e.g. GAMA, DEVILS, WAVES, SAMI, MAGPI), and the latest galaxy formation models run on powerful HPC facilities, such as the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre

Situated on the Swan River, UWA is one of Australia’s most picturesque campuses. Its open courtyards, lush and verdant, are a place to study and relax, taking advantage of Perth’s beautiful climate. 

PhD scholarships are available for international students, covering tuition fees, health insurance, living allowance support and research/travel expenses. For details about ICRAR/UWA's PhD program, including eligibility requirements and potential projects, visit the ICRAR/UWA webpage.

Applicants are requested to apply via UWA's iAthena system, and are requested to attach a 1-page cover letter, a CV,  academic transcripts, and a copy of their masters or bachelor thesis, by Wednesday 31 August 2022. Applicants should comply with the UWA's English language requirements.

ICRAR/UWA is committed to equity and diversity and encourages applications from all qualified candidates.
