Dear colleagues

I am searching for PhD candidates with a solid background in maths, physics, and/or geodesy interested in solving problems focused on Antarctica and/or solid Earth deformation. Please circulate this email to anyone who may be interested. Many of the projects are associated with the Australian Centre for Excellence in Antarctic Science ( and will benefit from substantial training and networking opportunities across Australia.

Full scholarships are available for both international and domestic students on a competitive basis. For non-native English speakers an IELTS7.0 minimum is required by the University of Tasmania. It is a substantial advantage in the competitive scholarship process to have published in the peer reviewed literature or substantial relevant experience.

Qualified and interested candidates should contact me (Matt.King at<mailto:Matt.King at>) with a CV and a full academic transcript before applying formally.

Some specific projects are listed below. Positions are open until filled. The next scholarship deadline requires applications to be entered by March 7, 2022. Further rounds will follow.

Glacial Isostatic Adjustment in the Denman Glacier region, East Antarctica

Climate variability in satellite observations of Antarctic Ice Sheet change

GPS measurement of deformation of East Antarctica

Three-dimensional deformation of a heterogeneous Earth using finite element modelling

Kind Regards
