It is very rare that the lab has unfilled postdoctoral salary or postgraduate stipends available: when we do they are advertised and will be posted on this website. But we are very keen to support future students, staff or sabbatical visitors who are trying to win their own money. There a numerous relevant schemes available and while all are extremely competitive, good forward planning helps (i.e. don’t leave it until a few days before a scheme closes before contacting us).
QUT has an annual scholarship round for domestic and international postgraduates which is normally open through August and September, for enrollment beginning the following year.
The Australia Awards Endeavour Scheme has calls which fund full postgraduate studies for international students, as well as short term exchanges/sabbaticals for international PhD students, postdocs and established professionals. This scheme is generally open around April/May for funding in the following year.
Additionally, numerous international researchers and students have come to the lab using awards won in their home countries.
