The School of Biological Sciences is a large and research intensive unit at the University of Queensland, one of Australia’s most prestigious Universities. The School has broad expertise across the disciplines of ecology and evolution, molecular and quantitative genetics, developmental biology, behaviour, plant and animal physiology, and conservation biology. Our research programs span all scales of biological organisation, from molecules and cells, to organisms, populations, species and communities, and take advantage of study animal and plant systems in a large variety of habitats (see http://www.biology.uq.edu.au/ for detailed information on our research programs). The School is very pleased to announce a new initiative that has made available a number of PhD scholarships for talented International students who enrol in our PhD program in 2012.

International students normally pay international student fees of $29,600 per year, however individuals successful in gaining one of these scholarships will also be granted a full tuition-fee waiver.
The Application Process
Interested students should identify potential supervisors within their research area of interest (http://www.biology.uq.edu.au/academic-staff) and contact them to discuss potential projects. Strong candidates will be invited to apply for entry to the PhD program, and if accepted into the program will be considered for the School of Biological Sciences International Scholarships on a competitive basis.
