Ever thought of a PhD?
The Science Communication PhD Program at ANU is open for applications now!
Have you ever thought of doing a PhD? We're keen to hear from you.
If you have Honours or a Masters degree we’re interested in starting a conversation with you about the potential of doing a PhD.
We’re working in a number of different areas of the science communication world, including:
* Public opinion about science and technology
* Informal learning, science centres and social aspects of science education
* Social media and science communication
* Science, policy and government
* Science communication to business and industry
* Fiction, science and the public
* Communication about food and agricultural sciences
What's in it for me?
Students gain a range of benefits from doing a PhD. The degree opens the door to the world of research and new knowledge; it incerases your chances of earning higher pay in more satisfying jobs; it can be a significant personal achievement.
Scholarships are available - but you need to get your application in by October 31st.
