PhD position

Dear colleagues,

Together with a team of Partner Investigators, I have just received some ARC funding for a project to start in early 2016: Stability of Generalised Equations and Variational Systems.

We are able to support one or two PhD students to work on this project. The current ARC funded PhD stipend is (AU)$25,406 tax free.

Best regards,
