Australia PhD Scholarships in Ecological Modelling at Macquarie University

Closing date for receipt of completed applications: Juni 2007.

Two PhD scholarships are available in Ecological Modelling at Macquarie University.

  1. MQRES Modelling Climate Change Impacts on Australian Forests
    Australian forests provide a range of important ecosystem services, such as wood production, carbon sequestration and protection of water catchments. Climate change is highly likely to modify how forests function, and land managers urgently need information about how these ecosystem services will be affected. To address this need, this project will develop ecophysiologically-based models of climate change impacts on Australian forests over the next century. Data assimilation techniques will be used to incorporate information from state-of-the-art climate change experiments, both local and international. Strong collaboration with experimental scientists will be encouraged.

  2. MQRES Modelling Climate Change Impacts on Plant Competition

Climate change threatens to change the composition of plant communities. Climate change does not impact on all species equally, so changes in climate will modify competitive relations among plants, with important consequences for biodiversity and ecosystem functioning. This project will develop simulation models to investigate how changes in atmospheric CO2 concentration, water and nitrogen availability combine to modify the outcomes of competition among different plant species. The modelling work will be informed by data from a long-term US experiment that manipulates atmospheric CO2, N deposition, rainfall, and species composition.

MQRES scholarships are available to Australian and international students. Applicants should have completed an Australian four-year undergraduate degree in a relevant discipline with first class honours, or demonstrate equivalent research qualifications from an Australian or overseas University. These projects would suit candidates with a strong numerical aptitude and an interest in plant ecology. Candidates should have a background in one or more of the following areas: plant physiology, ecology, pure or applied mathematics, physics or statistics.

The scholarship pays a living allowance currently $19,616 per annum, tax exempt (2007) and the tenure is 3.5 years full time, subject to satisfactory progress. Tuition fees will be funded for the scholarship tenure, with domestic students receiving Research Training Scheme (RTS) placement for their tuition, and International award holders having their fees sponsored.
Further information on the project is available from supervisors:
Dr Belinda Medlyn, telephone +61 2 9850 8208,, and Professor Lesley Hughes, telephone +61 2 9850 8195,

Application forms and conditions for MQRES awards are available from the Higher Degree Research Office, telephone: (02) 9850 7663, e-mail: or from our website: link 1, link 2

PhD/MSc Studentships at the Centre for Digital Video Processing (CDVP) 2008-2009 Ireland

Closing date for receipt of completed applications: 15th July 2007.

Dublin City University
The CDVP is seeking a MSc/PhD research student to join the “iCLIPS: Integrating Context through Annotation and Linking in Information Retrieval for Personal Information Archives” project.

Developments in digital data capture and storage mean that it will soon be possible to archive one’s entire life experiences in personal information archives, or human digital memories (HDMs). Current search engines for the World Wide Web output document lists ranked by combining measures based on the Web’s link structure and a match between document contents and search requests.

The absence of links and lower quality of HDM document contents means that enhanced information retrieval methods are required to enable effective searching and location of interesting and useful material from within these archives. iCLIPs is concerned with the development of novel search methods for these collections. The project requires study of both information retrieval algorithms and the exploration and modelling of relevant human memory processes in order to facilitate the design of retrieval methods which support user needs.

Candidates for this position should have a first or upper second degree or equivalent in a relevant discipline such as computing science or cognitive science with an interest in information retrieval, human-computer interaction or memory studies.

This studentship is fully funded by Science Foundation Ireland. The position is available immediately and the successful applicant would be expected to take up the position before 1st October 2007.

The CDVP is a very active group conducting research into a wide variety of search and information management technologies. Full details can be found at:

Interested candidates should forward a current CV with names of two referees and a short note describing their interest in joining the iCLIPS project, via email to the project investigator Dr Gareth Jones ( Informal enquiries are also welcome.

Closing date for receipt of completed applications: 15th July 2007.
