PhD Positions available

We are recruiting a new cohort of PhD students to commence in 2024. The students will work in close collaboration with chief investigators and a dynamic team of other students
and researchers.

SAEF at QUT will apply quantitative and computational tools to solve Antarctic conservation challenges. PhD projects will be developed in collaboration with the students, on themes that include:

  • Antarctic conservation planning
  • Remote-sensing for biodiversity
  • Geopolitical modelling
  • Rapid-responses to climate shocks

PhD students will have funding to travel to international partner institutions, attend scientific conferences and meetings, and collaborate with polar researchers worldwide. Many projects offer opportunities to travel to the sub- Antarctic and Antarctic. Applicants should have experience in quantitative environmental science, and/or applied mathematics and statistics.

If you are interested, please contact one of our chief investigators or email
