PhD Scholarship Opportunities

I am always looking for talented and self-motivated students who would like to join my research group. Students seeking a scholarship should initially contact me to discuss their proposed research project for a PhD scholarship application. You may check the application process for Higher Degree by Research (HDR) and English Requirements of Flinders University before contacting me.

Australian Government Research Training Program Scholarships and Flinders University Postgraduate Scholarships are two competitive scholarships open to international and domestic research applicants. More information on these scholarships and the application deadlines/requirements are outlined at Flinders Scholarships. Application deadlines for International Students are usually early August. Application deadlines for domestic Students are usually late October.

China Scholarship Council (CSC) scholarship also offers funding for Chinese students who would like to study a PhD in Australia. Furthermore, PhD students currently studying in China can apply for a CSC visiting PhD scholarship. Please contact me directly if interested.

Postdoctoral Fellowships Opportunities

I am highly interested to host postdoctoral fellows in my research group to collaborate with our research team and to conduct high-quality and impactful research in design of electric machines. Interested applicants should contact me to discuss their research proposal and after approval can apply for Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA).
