RMIT University offers PhD scholarship for domestic and internationalstudents for the period 2013-2015. The scholarship will be paid at the rate equivalent to the Australian Postgraduate Award and is $24,653 (2013 rate) and is indexed annually. Applicants must have a degree in engineering or science at a Bachelor with Honours equivalent or a Master degree. Scholarship is offered for three years, with a possible extension by a further 6 months. Application deadline is 27 September 2013.

Study Subject(s): Scholarship is provided in the school of electrical and computer engineering and the focus of the PhD is to study memristor micro-nano-devices, the fourth circuit element offered by RMIT University in Australia.

Course Level: This scholarship is available for pursuing PhD degree level at RMIT University in Australia.

Scholarship Provider: RMIT University and funded by the Australian Research Council

Scholarship can be taken at: Australia

Eligibility: To be eligible for this scholarship you must:
