From Deakin University in Australia...
I currently have three industry funded PhD scholarships that I'm seeking to find students for in the following areas below:
- Identifying the key soil, water and crop sensing, and forecasting parameters for the proper implementation of automated irrigation systems in strategically ponded rice cropping.
- Integrating sensor networks and big data for the implementation of automated irrigation systems in irrigated rice cropping systems.
- Monitoring and managing aquatic weeds in irrigation channels
All offer a $30K/pa tax free stipend for the three year duration of the PhD and more details are in the attachment. They are all industry funded and based in Griffith, NSW, Australia https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D3b5voDbY00. I think the PhD's are a great opportunity to work in areas of irrigation water management that have global significance/relevance. If you know of any students that maybe interested could you please let them know of the opportunity. For further information please contact me directly, details below.
Thanks for your help.
