Undertake research related to acoustics and the built environment.
As cities become denser, so too the noise impacts of living and working nearby magnify. The operations of a 24/7 city encroach on the amenity of our urban environments daily. While regulation can go some way to manage the urban noise impacts of heavy traffic, noise from building plant and equipment or noisy neighbours in our urban environment, good design is also critical to the management of unwanted noise externally as well as within our building interiors, in co-working spaces, restaurants and between neighbouring apartments for example. This scholarship is open to candidates to undertake research that will lead to a better understanding of the important aspects related to ensuring good acoustics and controlling noise pollution in the Built Environment. Candidates with significant industry experience are encouraged to apply.
For general information and to discuss your topic proposal please email Professor Deo Prasad (email@example.com).
The Scholarship will be paid as a stipend for general living costs at $37,684 per annum (2024 rate) and a research allowance of $5,000 per annum. It will be payable for 3.5 years. The scholarship will be held in conjunction with a Tuition Fee Scholarship (TFS) if the recipient is international.
The duration and payment of the scholarship will be pro-rata if awarded to an existing and/or part-time candidate.
