College Scholarships » Academic Scholarships » Education Scholarships

Well-qualified graduates are invited to undertake research leading to a PhD in the area of computational science, specifically applied to biomolecular and pharmaceutical modelling.

The Computational Chemistry group has established extensive international collaboration and has access to state-of-the-arts supercomputing facilities at Swinburne University, Victorian State Supercomputing

Facilities (VAPC) and the National Supercomputing facilities (APAC).

The successful applicants should have a strong background in science, or engineering.

Topics currently studied include the investigation of computational biomolecular modelling, structural studies of amino acids, DNA/RNA fragments and neucleosides, electron momentum spectral interpretation and simulation, molecular physics and bioinformatics.

International students should apply for both an International Postgraduate Research Scholarship (IPRS) and a Swinburne University Postgraduate Research Award (SUPRA).

The Scholarships include:

  • Up to $22,000 pa;
  • Up to three and half years;
