CSIRO Postgraduate Scholarships in Deep Earth Imaging

  • Develop innovative concepts and tools for imaging Earth structure and its resources
  • Pursue postgraduate research in a collaborative, multidisciplinary science environment
  • Work together with Australia's leading science and technology organisation

Deep Earth Imaging, a CSIRO Future Science Platform, is an outstanding opportunity for postgraduate students to pursue collaborative research as part of a multidisciplinary, international geoscience research team. Launch your research career, extend your professional network and enhance your future in science and technology while helping to solve some of the world’s and Australia’s most important strategic resource issues.

We seek self-motivated and well prepared postgraduate student candidates interested in a range of geoscience-related fields, including but not limited to seismology and mathematical geophysics, data analytics, visualisation, machine learning, applied mathematics and applied physics. You will work together with the Australian National University and CSIRO scientists to develop new Earth imaging methods with a specific emphasis on subsurface imaging, natural resource prediction and targeting, and uncertainty quantification. Together, we want to build the next generation of earth imaging tools using high-performance computing infrastructure and cloud technologies to guide our understanding of Earth’s composition and dynamics, future exploration, discovery and management of Australia’s mineral, energy and water resources.

Deep Earth Imaging Postgraduate Scholarships provide select Australian National University students with access to world-class facilities and a unique opportunity to work alongside Australia’s leading research scientists. Scholarships are available to full-time postgraduate students undertaking resources-related research that leads to a Doctor of Philosophy degree. Successful candidates will be mentored by ANU and CSIRO supervisors, allowing them to maintain and develop their university connections while being exposed to research in a working environment and pursuing a higher degree.

The Australian National University – CSIRO Deep Earth Imaging Postgraduate Scholarships comprise a stipend and funds for project-related expenses for up to three years. The program is open to Australian and international candidates (provided they meet Department of Immigration and Citizenship policy guidelines).
