The School of Materials Science and Engineering at UNSW Sydney is ranked #1 in Australia and 33rd in the world (QS World Rankings 2016). The School has a tradition of research excellence, with our academic staff highly regarded in their respective research areas. Our graduates go onto careers in both academia and industry within Australia and the world.
The School is constantly aiming to recruit research postgraduate students of the highest standard across a broad range of discipline areas. Students with backgrounds in Materials Science and Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, and Mathematics will all find possible projects within the School.
We are currently seeking outstanding applicants for beginning studies in Semester 2 of 2016 (i.e. starting at UNSW during July/August). Applicants must be; 1) Australian citizens/permanent residents or NZ citizens, and 2) have received a first class honours degree from an Australian or NZ university, or equivalent international qualification.
Suitable students will be provided with a list of specific projects available which match their educational background. Additionally, outstanding applicants will be given the option of travelling to UNSW for a day during May to meet with potential supervisors and discuss project details (return flights from an Australian or NZ major city will be provided for non-Sydney based students).
