Forest Coach Line and Sydney Business School Postgraduate Research Scholarship

A PhD scholarship in applied mathematics is available at The University of Sydney. The funds for this fellowship are available for three years. Applications are invited up to January 31, 2019.

Forest Coach Line in association with the Institute of Transport and Logistics Studies (ITLS) within the University of Sydney Business School are offering a Scholarship to a Masters by Research or PhD student whose research is focussed on public transport.

Applicants must have an unconditional offer of admission for full-time studies for a Masters by Research or PhD with the ITLS within the University of Sydney Business School, and be willing to undertake research in the field of public transport.

Applicants must also hold an Honours degree (First Class or Second Class upper) or a Master’s degree in a related field with a substantial research component and have demonstrable skills in quantitative and qualitative data analysis methods.

Preference will be given to graduates in economics, applied mathematics, civil engineering, quantitative geography, transport planning and engineering. Preference will also be given to those who demonstrate a particular interest in investigating the future role of bus-based services and systems in a metropolitan or rural/regional context. This can include the economics of public transport, bus operations, multimodal service provision, service delivery models and governance frameworks.

The successful applicant will be awarded the Scholarship by the nomination of a selection committee consisting of the Director of Doctoral Studies, relevant research supervisor, one other academic member of staff in the University of Sydney Business School and a representative from the sponsor Forest Line Coaches.

The Scholarship will provide an annual stipend allowance of $32,000 per annum (fixed) for up to three years, subject to satisfactory academic performance. The recipient may apply for an extension of up to 6 months.

The Student Services Amenities fee is also provided for a successful applicant, for the same duration as the stipend allowance.

Academic tuition fees will be provided for an outstanding international student for up to 12 research periods for a PhD and up to 6 research periods for an MPhil student, at which point they will be expected to upgrade to PhD. A six months extension is possible, subject to satisfactory academic progress.

Progression is subject to passing the annual progress review.
