Postgraduate opportunities with the EarthByte Group

The EarthByte research group is known for pursuing open innovation, involving the collaborative development of open-source paleogeographic information system software as well as global digital data sets made available under a creative commons license.

We have exciting opportunities for PhD and Masters students in the areas of:

● marine geology and geophysics
● plate motions
● geodynamics
● surface process modelling
● continental margin and basin evolution
● data science and machine learning

Available scholarships – FULLY FUNDED

International students can apply for the Australian Government Research Training Program (RTP) Scholarship (International). This scheme is funded by the Australian Government and provides tuition fees and stipend to top quality international postgraduate students. Applications are assessed on academic merit and research potential. Those under consideration for an RTP Scholarship will automatically be considered for a University of Sydney International Scholarship, which also covers tuition fees and provides a stipend. Applications for these scholarships are accepted all year but it is advisable to submit your application by October for a 2020 start date. Based on previous’ years recipients you need to have at least one publication to be competitive for these scholarships.
