ICRAR is looking for talented, hard-working and motivated students to work on our postgraduate research projects.
Opportunities are available for study at both of ICRAR’s joint venture partners, Curtin University and The University of Western Australia. Specific research projects are available across many areas of astronomy (both theoretical and observational), astronomy engineering and high performance computing.
For further details on an individual project, please feel free to contact the potential supervisor. If you’re considering a PhD with ICRAR then please feel free to get in touch and find out more by emailing email@example.com. If you have a chance to visit us in beautiful Perth and see what it’s like to be part of our thriving research community, we would love to host you.
Below we list the projects on offer for commencement in 2021, organised by research area.
