Auswahl möglicher Forschungsprojekte in Australien

Griffith University Logo
University:Griffith University
Faculty:Australian Research Centre for Human Evolution (ARCHE)
Project Start Date:30.09.2022
Application Deadline:12.08.2022
Supervisor Name:Associate Professor Julien Louys, Email: j.louys@griffith.edu.au
Location (City/Campus):Brisbane/Nathan Campus
Project Description:

We are currently looking for a PhD candidate to analyse the unique fossil assemblages of the underwater caves of the Mt Gambier region. The Mt Gambier deposits are the only caves in Australia to preserve in exquisite detail the remains of Australia’s megafauna, as well as numerous other taxa, in flooded settings. The primary focus of this role is to undertake research in the palaeontology, taphonomy, and ecology of the fossil remains from excavated underwater deposits and new material from previously unstudied underwater fossil localities. This project includes field, museum, and laboratory work. Success in this role requires collaboration with the Cave Divers Association of Australia, the South Australian Museum, the University of Adelaide, and the University of Queensland.

This project will be undertaken through the Australian Research Centre for Human Evolution (ARCHE). ARCHE is a world leader in research and education on all aspects of human evolutionary studies. We provide a dynamic and cooperative research environment that seeks to understand how humans and their societies across the globe evolved over time. We emphasise the study of the biological and cultural evolution of humans and our place in the natural world, with a growing focus on Australia, Asia, and the Pacific.

Funding Information:

The 2022 Griffith University Postgraduate Research Scholarship has an annual stipend of $28,854 (indexed) for a period of up to three years of full-time study.

A successful International applicant will also be awarded a Griffith University International Postgraduate Research Scholarship to cover tuition fees for up to three years.

Special Requirements:

The selection of applicants for the award of higher degree research scholarships at Griffith University involves consideration of your academic merit and research background. To be successful within this role, you will be able to combine field and laboratory studies with analytical skills. You will have evidence of a passion for palaeontology, with a strong desire to undertake research in biology and geology.

Expressions of interest are welcome from domestic and international applicants.
Applicants must have completed, or expect to complete, a bachelors degree with honours equivalent to first class honours or a Masters degree (AQF Level 9) incorporating a significant research component of a standard comparable to a bachelor honours degree or be regarded by Griffith University as having an equivalent level of attainment in accordance with Schedule One of the HDR Scholarship Policy. For further information on the eligibility requirements for the program refer here.
Please note:

A background in scuba diving is desired.

Additional Information:

All expressions of interest must be submitted to j.louys@griffith.edu.au containing:

Statement addressing your suitability for the project/scholarship
Evidence that you have completed a program with the required grades as detailed in the about you section
A curriculum vitae (CV)
Names of two referees
The closing date for expressions of interest is: [5 pm AEST, Friday, 12, August, 2022]

The preferred applicant will then be invited to apply for the program and scholarship on-line.

Grundlegendes zum Schwerpunkt Bio- und Chemiewissenschaften

Im Mittelpunkt der Biologiewissenschaften stehen alle grundlegenden Aspekte lebender Organismen: Mikroorganismen, Pilze, Pflanzen und Tiere. Viele Forschungsgruppen arbeiten mit interdisziplinären Fragestellungen und untersuchen, wie Arten und Ökosysteme verwaltet, erhalten und wiederhergestellt werden können. Mit modernen Techniken und Methoden, die von molekularen und genetischen Analysen bis hin zu Big-Data-Sciences reichen, werden komplexe Zusammenhänge erforscht.  

Wie die Biologie so spielt auch die Chemie in allen Bereichen unseres Lebens eine grundlegende Rolle. Zentrale Bedeutung hat die Entwicklung neuer Medikamente für die Behandlung von Krankheiten und die Entwicklung innovativer Materialien.Australische Hochschulen zeichnen sich durch hervorragende Grundlagen- und angewandte Forschung aus, deren Ergebnisse eine bedeutende Rolle für die chemische Industrie weltweit darstellen.
