PhD Scholarships

UQ scholarships:

The ACCS expects to offer 7-8 APA-equivalent scholarships at the University of Queensland in 2004. The Scholarships will be awarded for 3 years with a possible extension of 6 months. The scholarship value is $18,484 pa tax-free (indexed annually). Relocation assistance may also be available.

Applicants are expected to have a good Honours (minimum 2A) or equivalent degree in a relevant discipline. International applicants will need to pay tuition fees. Candidates would preferably commence their studies before 31 August 2004, but certainly before 31 March 2005.

All topics related to the ACCS research program will be considered. Project topics in the following areas are particularly welcome:

  • Genetic regulatory networks: the network structuring & control mechanisms that underlie genetic regulation in cell-level development of biological organisms;
  • Free flight air-traffic control: the operational concepts and tools that will ensure safety and efficiency of air traffic under “free flight” regimes, viewed as networks of aircraft;
  • Evolution of economic systems: the role of connections and micro/macro relationships in evolving economic systems.

Topics that address enabling theory and tools are also welcome, including complex systems science, agent-based modelling and simulation, grid computing middleware and advanced visualisation, human computer interaction, and theory of networks.

Closing date for applications:

  • 16 July 2004
