'Expressions of Interest are invited for one PhD scholars in Computational Design to be supported by the Curtin Strategic International Research Scholarships (CSIRS) and jointly based at the Built Environment Research Laboratory under the Australian Sustainable Development Institute (ASDI).
Candidates with a background in architecture, engineering, computer science or a combination thereof are sought in the overlapping areas of conceptual design, building performance and computational simulation. An expertise or interest in architectural geometry and programming methods for design exploration with procedural, generative, parametric methods will be highly regarded. Candidates will work on simulation and generation of built environment models based on data sets and methods at the scales of components, buildings and urban precincts. Both candidates will work on novel multi-scale representations combining geometry models, environmental models and performance models; new methods for model building, model variation and contribute to model construction, simulation, validation and interoperation.
The CSIRS are a prestigious merit-based scholarship aimed at attracting high calibre international applicants in computational design. These scholarships are to support scholars of high promise in their doctoral studies upto a duration of 3.5 years. The Scholarships will provide students with a tax-free living allowance of $25,000 AUD per annum, 100% tuition fee support through the CIPRS ($25,800 AUD per annum) scheme, and a thesis allowance. Additional annual top-up support from the Enrolling Areas are available for variable expenses such as field trips, and conference attendance based on progress and merit on an annual basis.'
