First Nations-identified PhD scholarship in Virology

An exciting, fully funded PhD scholarship opportunity in Virology has just opened up at Charles Stuart University. 

This opportunity is part of the $4 million Training Hub promoting Regional Industry and Innovation in Virology and Epidemiology (THRIIVE) initiative at CSU, and the scholarship recipient will join a large and dynamic virus research group.

This scholarship opportunity is available exclusively to First Nations-identifying students, and provides 3 years of stipend plus a $10,000 top-up ($40,000 per annum). There are several potential PhD projects on offer through THRIIVE, focused on fields as diverse as molecular virology, structural virology, antiviral discovery, and epidemiology.

Importantly, THRIIVE also acknowledges the connection of First Peoples to their culture and their country, and this scholarship position will specifically incorporate culturally-appropriate mentorship and support, working closely with the CSU Indigenous Australian Curriculum & Resources Team – Gulaay.
