Position Details (PhD)

Two-dimensional (2D) materials of nanosized thickness are emerging building blocks for designing advanced materials with applications ranging from chemical separation to energy storage. This Ph.D project is centred around the development of advanced membrane materials with an emphasis on the development of 2D building blocks.

International candidates to undertake a direct entry 3-year PhD program. To be eligible for this scholarship you will have a Master degree in chemical engineering, chemistry, environmental engineering, materials engineering, or a related subject from a high-ranking university. You will also have a record of excellent academic performance and additional relevant research experience and/or peer-reviewed publication.

The scholarship is open to international students for a maximum of 3.5 years. It will be comprised of a Tuition Fee Offset and a Living Allowance Stipend.

The research group is headed by Dr. Qiang Fu (ARC Future fellow) within the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Technology Sydney. This group draws from disciplines such as Chemical Engineering and Materials Science working on topics such as membranes, solid polymer electrolytes, 2D materials and hydrogels.
