Every year, we invite research students who're interested in undertaking a PhD with us to our Prospective PhD Open Days event. Held over two days during September's annual UQ Research Week, the event is open to final-year Honours and MSc students who want to specialise further in their chosen field of mathematics, statistics or physics.

 This year’s event will be held on September 13th and 14th. Please fill out the Application Form and return along with a copy of your University Transcript(s) of results and CV (in pdf, doc, docx format only)  to the relevant PhD Open Day Discipline Coordinators by the closing date of August 29th:

Mathematics: Dr Thomas Taimre

Physics: Dr Tyler Neely

Financial assistance

If you find a project that suits you, we'll help you prepare your application for an Australian Postgraduate Award, which carries an annual tax-free stipend.

The award is available to Australian and New Zealand citizens, and Australian permanent residents, who have a Class I honours degree or equivalent.

Casual tutoring is available to supplement your income, and suitably qualified candidates who demonstrate exceptional potential for research can apply for a top-up scholarship.

To find out more, visit our support pages for current students.
