Scholarships & Research Support

On this page

The Centre for Air quality and health Research and evaluation (CAR), will be involved in fostering research training and support for students, postdoctoral research fellows and researchers.

CAR investigators work collaboratively with a number of local and international researchers providing research trainees scope to explore a number of research avenues and build upon their existing research networks.

Research training

Research training consists of either post-doctoral career development fellowships or PhD scholarships. Fields of research broadly encompass methodological advances in the study of air pollutants, longer and short term health outcomes, the biological basis of adverse human effects and the effects on vulnerable populations.

Postdoctoral fellowships

Applications for Postdoctoral Fellowships are now closed.

PhD scholarships

Applications for PhD Scholarships and PhD top ups are now closed.
