IPAS PhD Positions Available
The Institute for Photonics and Advanced Sensing (IPAS) at the University of Adelaide is seeking highly motivated science or engineering graduates to commence their PhD studies in 2017.
Major Application Round: 1 September – 30 October
- PhD Scholarships in Fluid Mechanics
Two PhD projects are offered with scholarships as part of a wider project “Mathematics the key to modern glass and polymer fibre technology”, the ARC Future Fellowship awarded to Associate Professor Yvonne Stokes (February 2017- February 2021). The wider project is concerned with mathematical modelling of microstructured optical fibre (MOF) fabrication for a variety of uses. Mathematics is essential to solving the inverse problem of determining the preform and draw parameters to produce a desired fibre and has already proved to be of significant practical benefit.
