Postgraduate Research Tuition Fee Scholarship in Behaviour of Clay for Geo-environmental and Geotechnical Applications

Background:

An opportunity is available for an outstanding PhD scholar with experience in working with clay soils for geo-environmental and geo-technical applications.

Clay soils are amongst the most-widely used material in human history, owing to a range of remarkable properties, amongst which is the ability to close fissures and cracks autonomously. However, the conditions under which this capability is manifested and the reasons for it, are not well understood. On the other hand, self-healing and self-sealing of clay offer the promise of material that can repair itself and can therefore be deployed in extreme conditions, such as those under high-temperature and/or aggressive chemical environment.

The project will make contribution to the fundamental science of clay behaviour and lead to practical applications in geomechanics, engineering and environmental science.

Open to:

Applicants must have an unconditional offer of admission for full-time studies in a PhD within the School of Civil Engineering at the University of Sydney, and be willing to undertake research in the field of behaviour of clay for geo-environmental and geotechnical applications.  

Applicants must also hold an Honours degree (First Class or Second Class upper) or a Master's degree in a related field of engineering or science, or equivalent.  

Value and Duration:

The Scholarship will provide the academic course fees for a successful international applicant, for 12 research periods.  The recipient may apply for an extension of up to 2 research periods.
