This PhD scholarship is part of an ARC-funded effort to create new instruments for directly probing the inner workings of solar cells using diamond quantum sensors.

We are looking for a motivated student with a physics or electrical engineering background to work on this intriguing project at the intersection of optics, instrumentation, and condensed matter physics, in conjunction with CSIRO.


About the Scholarship:

The Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, also known as RMIT University, is an Australian research university based in Melbourne. The institution has a large campus and is well-known internationally for providing excellent vocational and professional education, applied research, and other services. In 1887, Francis Ormond laid the groundwork for the university. It began as a night school where students may take courses in technology, art, and science. In 1992, the university was given the label of public university. Every year, RMIT University enrolls almost 87,000 students, including 34,347 international onshore and offshore students. The university also makes $54.1 million from research.

In the topic of art and design subjects, the university is ranked 11th in the world. RMIT University’s main campus is located in the heart of Melbourne and has significant heritage importance due to its location in the city’s oldest portion. Bundoora Campus and Brunswick Campus are the university’s other two sites in Australia. It also has two regional sites, two campuses, and a center in Spain. Since then, the campus has grown to include 87 buildings. RMIT University is distinguished by the absence of boundary walls, and the entire campus is extended across six city blocks, spanning an area of around 720,000 square meters. RMIT University’s alumni group is comprised of over 437,000 graduates who are actively employed in 130 countries. Jim Stynes, a well-known charity worker; James Wan, a movie director and writer; Lydia Lassila, an Australian winter Olympic gold winner; Charles Billich, a well-known Australian artist; and Australian animator Felix Colgrave are among the university’s well-known alumni. RMIT has been providing mixed learning – both online and in-person – for some time. Students can study online by taking part in lectures and tutorials through Canvas, our online learning and teaching platform, to ensure continuous learning in any situation. You’ll be part of an engaged digital community at RMIT, where we all connect and learn together, no matter where you are in the world. The Bundoora campus, located on Melbourne’s northwestern outskirts, is home to several of RMIT’s health, biomedical science, and engineering programs. The campus includes purpose-built laboratories, cutting-edge teaching facilities, and a variety of sporting and recreational amenities, such as a FIFA-approved football pitch, an Australian Rules football oval, an athletics track, and tennis and netball courts. RMIT’s Health Science Clinic, located near campus, offers training in Chinese medicine, chiropractic, osteopathy, and psychology. The Bundoora campus is surrounded by beautiful forest and serene parks, and it is conveniently accessible by tram or bus.  As a worldwide university, RMIT has two campuses in Vietnam, as well as a language center, and a research and industry collaboration center in Barcelona, Spain. RMIT also provides programs through partners in Singapore, Hong Kong, Sri Lanka, and mainland China, as well as research and business connections on every continent. Finding accommodation is always a major issue for international students, however it is not difficult to find accommodation in Melbourne. If you’re looking for private accommodations, we recommend that you don’t pay anything until you’ve viewed the facility. Arriving in Melbourne one or two weeks before your program begins is a smart option. RMIT Village has a collaboration with RMIT. RMIT Village is located on the grounds of a historic hotel, therefore many of the units have balconies and an outdoor pool. RMIT Village is a 5- to 10-minute walk from various RMIT campus buildings. In the 2021 QS World University Rankings, RMIT was rated 223rd. In addition, the University is placed eighth in Australia, 39th in East Asia and the Pacific, and 18th globally in the Top 50 Universities Under 50 Years Old. In the 2021 US News Best Global Universities rankings, the University was rated 281st in the world. RMIT is also ranked in the top 400 universities in the world by the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) and the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings. In the 2020 Times Higher Education Impact Ranking, RMIT was rated tenth in the world. RMIT is changing its engagement with Aboriginal peoples by collaborating with them and supporting their self-determination. The purpose is to achieve long-term transformation through developing values, culture, policy, and institutions so that reconciliation is embedded in everything the University does. RMIT is altering its ways of thinking and functioning in order to promote long-term reconciliation and the activation of relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people. RMIT University is well-known for its urban presence, and its main city campus is a prominent feature of the central Melbourne skyline. When courses are finished for the day, you can join a club or society, have a free weekly breakfast, or participate in our walking tours, fitness classes, markets, cinema screenings, and live music events on campus. RMIT has something for everyone. There is a wide variety of inexpensive and healthful meals and beverages around. You will also be within walking distance of hundreds of neighborhood residences.
