This scholarship will provide an annual stipend allowance equivalent to the minimum RTP rate (indexed on 1 January each year) for up to three years, subject to satisfactory academic performance.

Who’s eligible

You must:

  • be a domesticĀ or international student
  • have an unconditional offer of admission or be enrolled in a full-timeĀ  PhD at the Faculty of Science
  • be willing to researchĀ in the prescribed area in the School of Life and Environmental Sciences (refer to Background section)
  • hold an honours degree (first class or second class upper) or a master’s degree in a related field with a substantial research component with aĀ on related disciplines
  • have a background inĀ in soil chemistry and experience in using spectroscopic techniques, such as FT-ICR-MS), and FTIR for analysing soil organic matter
  • haveĀ Professor Balwant Singh as your primary supervisor.

An applicant without an unconditional offer of admission may apply and be selected, however, no scholarship offer will be sent until the applicant has an unconditional offer of admission.


This scholarship aims to support a student undertaking a PhD on approved projects funded by ARC within the Faculty of Science.

This scholarship aims to support a student who focus their research on the stability of organic carbon associated with different clay minerals and artificial soils using advanced spectroscopic studies including nanoscale secondary ion mass spectrometry (NanoSIMS), Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry (FT-ICR-MS), and synchrotron based – scanning transmission X-ray microscopy (STXM) and X-ray absorption fine structure (XAFS).
