PhD Scholarships spanning the complete mining and processing production chain

Generous PhD scholarships in engineering, computer science, data analytics and mathematical modelling are now available.

Gold sensing - lumps of gold

Gold sensing, conducted by Professor Heike Ebendorff-Heidepriem and her team.

Join the Australian Research Council Training Centre for Integrated Operations for Complex Resources and help deliver the vital enabling tools – advanced sensors, data analytics and Artificial Intelligence – for automated, integrated and optimised mining.

All PhD projects include an industry placement and offer a unique opportunity to work on industry-linked interdisciplinary projects with leading researchers and mining industry partners.

Projects include:

  • Cross-borehole seismic interferometry to interpolate rock mass and geometallurgical variables
  • Pulp Chemistry Monitor for leach applications
  • Fingerprinting ore types and blends by fusing hyper-spectral and other sensors using assisted machine learning
  • Integration of sensors to maximise crushing plant throughput

We invite qualified Australian domestic and international students with an excellent master/honours degree in mining engineering, mechanical engineering, computer science, mathematics, statistics or related areas to submit an Expression of Interest with the view to start from mid-2020 onwards.

The scholarships are open to Australian domestic and international students, and successful applications will receive a tax-free stipend of AU$34,013 for 3 years.
