Residential Student Scholarships (RSS): Expressions of interest now open

Residential Student Scholarships (RSSs) are offered by AINSE Limited (the Australian Institute of Nuclear Science and Engineering) for suitably-qualified persons wishing to undertake studies aligned with ANSTO's research programmes for a higher degree at an AINSE-member university. Expressions of interest will be received up to 11:59 pm AEST 31st May 2020.

The award provides a stipend of A$7,500 per annum, in addition to up to A$5,000 per annum travel and accommodation allowance (plus an additional accommodation allowance of up to $5,200 for eligible students travelling interstate or overseas), to enable students to spend a significant amount of time working at ANSTO facilities.

Expressions of interest are now being sought from first-year PhD students whose research topics closely align with ANSTO's research programmes: The Environment, Human Health, the Nuclear Fuel Cycle, Defence and Space Industries, and Fusion.

Applicants are requested to email a one page (A4) only* abstract to ainse@ainse.edu.au outlining the details of their research project and the ANSTO staff member(s) they will be collaborating with. Selected applicants who are successful in the first round will be invited to submit a more detailed online application.

Winter School 2020: Nominations now open

AINSE offers scholarships to its Member Universities to enable a nominated student to attend the Winter School on applications of nuclear techniques. The 24th AINSE Winter School will run online over three days from Tuesday 7th to Thursday 9th July 2020.

The scholarship is open to all senior undergraduate students to whom a knowledge of nuclear analysis techniques would be of interest. Such techniques have applications in areas ranging from agriculture to zoology, including physics, chemistry, biology, environmental science, geography, geology, and archaeology. The Winter School provides an ideal opportunity for students in their final year of undergraduate STEM studies to explore potential options for future research projects and meet potential collaborators.

The Winter School involves a mixture of lectures, experimental sessions and demonstrations. A social program including an online networking event encourages students to discuss important current social issues involving science and technology.

The AINSE Councillor at each university is responsible for coordinating the selection of a scholarship student. Please contact your University Councillor, or AINSE administration, to find out more about the AINSE Winter School.
