Honours and Special Project Students (2nd/3rd Year Undergraduates)

We are always interested in accommodating Honours and Special Project Students within the group. We have a wide variety of projects to choose from, which can be tailored to match your interests. These projects will give you fantastic hands-on research experience in areas such as: organic synthesis and characterisation, peptide synthesis, HPLC, AFM, UV-vis/fluorescence spectroscopy and protein chemistry. 

If you are interested in doing a project with us, you are highly advised to contact Palli.

PhD Students

Local students with Australian or New Zealand permanent residency and a first class B.Sc. Honours are most welcome to apply for a position in our group. Currently, UNSW is offering up to $35,000 per year in a Ph.D. Scholarship for top B.Sc. Honours students from Australia and New Zealand. See here for a list of local scholarships. 

International students are advised that fees for international students are currently above $25,000 and the competition for International Post-graduate Research Scholarships (IPRS) is extremely strong. That said, international students with interest in our work, top academic performance (at least > 85% average for B.Sc.), some research experience and good communication skills are encouraged to seek further information about research opportunities in our group. See here for a list of international scholarships.

Also available to both Local and International students are the Scientia PhD Scholarships - Which offer up to $40,000 per year + $10,000 per year as support for career development.
