National Industry PhD Scholarship

An Industry PhD is a doctoral program designed with an industry application. Under appropriate academic and industry supervision, PhD candidates undertake a co-designed research project with university and industry participation.

The National Industry PhD Program will support PhD candidates to undertake industry-focused research projects and be equipped with the knowledge and skills to better translate university research into commercialisation outcomes. Upon completion, candidates will have the ability to work at the interface of research and industry, and across the sectors in future.

This project will develop methodologies to calculate appropriate payment rates for electric vehicles charging in public charging stations. The expected outcome of the project is a set of market-based rules to determine the variable electric vehicle charging rates. This project will benefit both electric vehicle and charging station owners.

$50,520 per year for 3 and half years
