Scientia PhD Scholarship

As part of the UNSW Scientia PhD Scholarship Scheme , a scholarship opportunity is dedicated to outstanding applicants in the area of number theory and arithmetic dynamics. 


The goal of the scheme is to attract outstanding candidates to work in the area of number theory and arithmetic dynamics under the supervision and in collaboration with Dr Alina Ostafe, Prof. John Roberts and Prof. Igor Shparlinski as well as with other members of the research groups in Dynamics and Number Theory. 


This scheme provides a general support of tax-free 40,000 AUD per annum for 4 years (with the tuition fee waived) with a possibility of further research and travel support up to 10,000 AUD per annum. 


The School of Mathematics and Statistics at UNSW is among the top research schools in mathematics in Australia with extensive research funding and international links. 


Please note that only truly outstanding candidates will be considered. Our assessment of your application will be improved by evidence of any research output (including preprints on public servers (e.g. arXiv)), prizes and awards, research experience and research potential as evidenced by outstanding referee reports. Queries from applicants who obviously fail this requirement will not be acknowledged or responded to. 


The time-line is very strict, so by 21 July 2017 please fill in the details on this application page and press Apply. We also request that you send a concise Research Statement (of your interests and direction) directly to us, plus any other information that may help us. We will be in contact with you if we need further details or if we wish you to submit a full application.
