The Australian Research Council (ARC) Training Centre in Optimisation Technologies, Integrated Methodologies, and Applications (OPTIMA) is seeking applications for ten ARC fully-funded PhD projects with generous top-up scholarships.

We're looking for talented students with a background in mathematics, computer science, statistics, economics, engineering or other related fields. These positions are offered across OPTIMA's nodes located at Monash University or The University of Melbourne. Projects will be available from June 2021 onwards.

PhD projects are 3.5 years, including at least a one-year equivalent industry placement, the timing of which can be negotiated.

An expression of interest must be submitted before prospective PhD students are invited to apply for admission through their selected university. Before applying, please read the OPTIMA node universities' admission requirements, as a PhD will not be offered if you do not meet them.
