Six full-time PhD Macquarie University Research Excellence Scholarships

Six full-time PhD Macquarie University Research Excellence Scholarships (MQRES/iMQRES) for either domestic and international students (three domestic and three international) are now available in the new ARC Centre of Excellence in Cognition and it’s Disorders.

Please quote the allocation reference 2011043 - 2011048 on your application form.

The Centre’s interdisciplinary research teams tackle basic questions in five key domains of cognition, to be investigated individually and collectively: language, memory, person perception, belief formation, and reading. We welcome applications in these areas, and in other areas of cognitive science. This new Centre will advance theory and research in three areas of cognitive science: models of cognitive disorders, the treatment of cognitive disorders, and the neural basis of cognition and its disorders.

Applicants should have research qualifications in a relevant discipline (eg, Psychology, Cognitive Science, Behavioural Neuroscience, Linguistics, Philosophy) equivalent to an Australian Masters degree or Australian undergraduate degree with first class honours. Additional research experience will be favorably considered. Both domestic and international applicants are welcome.

Please contact Lesley McKnight for a list of the possible supervisors and research areas, on phone: +61 (2) 9850 9599; or email: Lesley.mcknight@mq.edu.au

The 2011 MQRES full-time stipend rate is $22,860 pa tax exempt for 3.5 years.

Applicants will need to complete a candidature/scholarship application form and arrange for two academic referee reports to be submitted to the Higher Degree Research Office. Refer to: http://www.hdr.mq.edu.au/information_about/applications for further application instructions. Macquarie University will advise the successful applicant of entitlements at the time of scholarship offer.
