John O’Sullivan PhD Scholarship at University of New South Wales, Australia 2012

John O’Sullivan PhD Scholarship at University of New South Wales, Australia 2012Eligibility: The Student must have, or expect to gain, first class honours or equivalent in a relevant research area and be
-selected from a competitive process;
-a full-time student;
- enrolled at UNSW for a PhD;
-an Australian citizen or Australian permanent resident;
-able to commence the study prior to 31 March 2013.

Subject: Various Courses

Level: PhD

How to Apply: By Post

Provider: Science and Industry Endowment Fund

For Which Country: Australia

For Whom: National

Description: The scholarship is to support a PhD student to work with the research team of University of New South Wales and CSIRO ICT Centre on the project and develop critical signal processing, transmission and receiving techniques for innovative mobile over fibre-to-the-x (FTTx) (MoF) networks. Currently, FTTx networks are being deployed world-wide to provide high speed broadband access to homes, such as the National Broadband Networks (NBN) in Australia. MoF is a concept where the FTTx networks are integrated into existing cellular networks and enhanced to provide very high-speed wireless connections to mobile devices through simple, low-cost units installed in homes. Using the FTTx optical fibre infrastructure as backhaul, neighboring units are grouped to form virtual cells, which can be as dense as hundreds per square kilometres. Through cooperation between these units and virtual cells, one mobile device can achieve connection speed as high as hundreds of megabytes-persecond, using the whole mobile spectra without causing interference to other devices. Hence the MoF networks can significantly reduce the area in which frequency cannot be reused from several square kilometres to a few hundred square metres, and is thus a most efficient and low-cost way of using scarce radio spectra for broadband wireless communications.

Excellence Summer Scholarships in Climate System Science at University of New South Wales, Australia 2012

Excellence Summer Scholarships in Climate System Science at University of New South Wales, Australia 2012Description: The ARC Centre of Excellence Summer Scholarships in Climate System Science are highly competitive scholarship awards intended to provide undergraduate students from Australian universities an introduction to cutting-edge climate system research at the UNSW Climate Change Research Centre (CCRC).

Eligibility: Students should be in their second, third, or post-honours year and interested in pursuing a postgraduate degree in climate system science. Current CCRC honours or PhD students are not eligible for this scholarship.p to five scholarships are available for domestic students to conduct supervised research at the CCRC for an eight-week period during the summer break from November to February, with a break around the holidays. The scholarships are valued at $4,000 for the eight-week research project. To be eligible, applicants must be Australian/New Zealand citizens or Australian permanent residents.
