Australian Institute of Nuclear Science and Engineering (AINSE) Residential Student Scholarship (RSS) 2020

ABOUT THE SCHOLARSHIP

Residential Student Scholarships (RSSs) are offered by AINSE Limited (the Australian Institute of Nuclear Science and Engineering) for suitably-qualified persons wishing to undertake studies aligned with ANSTO’s research programmes for a higher degree at an AINSE-member university.

Candidates must be available to spend a significant period of time at an ANSTO facility (at Lucas Heights, Clayton and/or Camperdown) for an average of six months or more per year either as a block of time or separate visitations.

WHO SHOULD APPLY?

Expressions of interest are now being sought from first-year PhD students whose research topics closely align with ANSTO’s research programmes:

  • The Environment,
  • Human Health,
  • The Nuclear Fuel Cycle,
  • Defence and Space Industries,
  • Fusion

Eligible students will be enrolled in a postgraduate research degree at an AINSE Member University and receiving an APA/RTP scholarship or equivalent.

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE SCHOLARSHIP?

The RSS comprises an A$7,500 stipend and A$5,000 travel support per annum.

ELIGIBILITY

Opportunities may also exist for postgraduate students interested in contracted research and industrial engagement projects in the defence industry area, and for postgraduate students interested in fusion research that aligns with ANSTO and ITER activities.

Please note: Current AINSE PGRA students awarded this scholarship would relinquish the AINSE PGRA.

The research project must require the use of ANSTO’s facilities and expertise for an average of 6 months per year.
