We invite well-qualified students of any nationality to apply to the PhD program at Curtin University’s Institute of Radio Astronomy (CIRA) based in Perth, Australia. In support of the Square Kilometre Array (SKA), this program focuses on radio astronomy or radio astronomy engineering. We have a wide range of potential PhD projects to choose from (nominally three years with a possible six-month extension).

Please note that there are two Curtin scholarships for all students (international and domestic) and 17 Research Training Program (RTP) scholarships for domestic (Australia and New Zealand) students. The application process for these scholarships follows a two stage process:
