Industry PhD scholarships

A Future Food Systems Industrial PhD Scholarship puts you at the heart of a unique transdisciplinary research ecosystem and industry network in which you will be encouraged to apply new science and technology to revolutionising the Australian and global food and nutrition sector.

Mega-trends around customisation, precision nutrition, advanced manufacturing, vertical agriculture, digitisation and circular economy solutions are transforming the sector into a high-tech, STEM-based industry offering a diverse array of skilled employment and entrepreneurial opportunities.

If you are a motivated university graduate wanting to undertake high-impact, high-value research; if you’re keen to create institutional or social change; if you want to maximise your career opportunities, a Future Food Systems Industrial PhD Scholarship will put you on an accelerated path.

Scholars are placed within industry research projects, ensuring strong real-world industry engagement. Scholarships are offered across CRC partner universities and across a wide range of science, social and STEM disciplines.

Typically, successful candidates will be First-class Honours or Masters graduates and will bring a Research Training Program (RTP) award. Candidates working within industry who wish to address topics of relevance to their employers are also encouraged to apply.
