Industry PhD scholarship

ECU Industry PhD Scholarship

The Industry PhD scholarship provides a pathway for PhD candidates to link with an industry partner, community organisation or government agency. Candidates collaborate with a partner organisation for the duration of their degree, allowing them to be immersed in an authentic industry experience, developing creative solutions for real-world problems while still receiving guidance on their research from their supervisors at ECU.

We are calling for Expressions of Interest from supervisors and from potential partner organisations. To apply please download, read and complet the Industry PhD Scholarship Guidelines for Supervisors and Expression of Interest: Industry PhD scholarship.

For more information and to submit your Expression of Interest, email the Graduate Research School.

ECU-CSIRO-Industry PhD Scholarship

The ECU-CSIRO-Industry PhD program is a dedicated 4-year applied research project, that has been developed to bring research and industry together. The program addresses three key areas:

  1. Increasing the number of high-calibre STEM PhD graduates in applied research and technology careers
  2. Increasing innovation and industry-focussed, practical research training
  3. Providing more incentive and opportunities for Australian businesses to employ STEM PhD researchers

Candidates work with a team of supervisors from ECU, CSIRO and an Industry partner for the period of study. The program includes professional development for candidates and supervisors, and a 6-month industry internship to enable candidates to develop their business skills experience.
