Research topic

Interested in environmental performance of carbon sequestration engineering?

This PhD scholar will work with multi-disciplinary researchers in the Deakin University led by School of Engineering and working with our industry partner the CO2CRC and several leading researchers. This research will develop advanced tracer tools for groundwater and soil gas interactions to provide assurance that injected CO2 is sequestered in deep aquifers without influencing shallow and surface environmental systems.

The research outcomes would be new data analytical workflows and technologies to improve evaluation of hydro-geomechanical parameters at strata and site scale, and over time. These tools are to complement and extend tools developed in collaboration with other researchers at the CO2CRC trail site.

Important dates

Applications will remain open until a candidate has been appointed.

Benefits

This scholarship is available over 3 years.

  • Stipend of $28,092 per annum tax exempt (2020 rate)
  • Relocation allowance of $500-1500 (for single to family) for students moving from interstate

Eligibility criteria

To be eligible you must:

  • Be a domestic candidate (domestic includes candidates with Australian Citizenship, Australian Permanent Residency or New Zealand Citizenship).
  • Meet Deakin’s PhD entry requirements
  • Be enrolling full time and hold an honours degree (first class) or an equivalent standard master’s degree with a substantial research component.

Please refer to the research degree entry pathways page for further information.

Additional desirable criteria include:

  • Degree qualification in Environmental Engineering, Chemical Sciences, Water Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Hydrogeology or related technical discipline.
  • Provide details of capability or aptitude in water quality and/or gas analysis using various chemical methods in the field and laboratory. For example, list chemical analytical experience and software experience including level of aptitude for each (Basic, Proficient, Advanced).
