PHD Openings

PhD Openings UNSW Canberra is investing $10M in the coming years to strengthen our space research activities and develop a sustainable university-led program to undertake research in space. A capability is being established to routinely conceptualise, develop and fly affordable responsible in-orbit missions to perform innovative research in space.Interested candidates with a passion towards research and innovation ,please email the corresponding supervisors quoting the topic in the subject.

A network of optical telescopes around the globe provides for excellent opportunities in cataloging and monitoring space objects, including space debris, for the purposes of space situational awareness (SSA). Howeever... Read More

Supervisor:

Large or real-time computing tasks currently require a significant sized computing resource, requiring large power supply, lots of thermal management, and accompanying large form factors. Recent trends in computing... Read More

Supervisor:

Much of the commercial small-satellite electronics for navigation and payload operation are based on small off-the-shelf microcontrollers. However the future of such space-hardened or space-ready functions are ideally... Read More

Supervisor:

Using optical telescopes we can track, observe, and record the temporal changes over long and short term of Sun illuminated object in orbit, including out to and past geostationary orbits. Depending on the size of the... Read More

Supervisor:

Single bit analog-to-digital conversion is attractive for GNSS receiver systems, since it greatly simplifies the analog and digital circuitry in the receiving system, at a modest performance cost.  Modern Field... Read More

Supervisor:

Detection of orbital objects via their scattering of radio energy is unlike normal radar.  The objects to be detected are effectively in a vacuum and follow a momentum conservative trajectory, which is to say their... Read More

Supervisor:

This is a visionary project that builds on our existing work on the analysis of human brain signals. The aim is to design a simple simulation environment for a space vehicle and directly use human brain signals to... Read More

Supervisor:

Swarm intelligence is the science focusing on designing simple principles for the formation and control of complex swarm formations. Trusted swarm formations are formations with calculated and transparent risks. This... Read More

Supervisor:

UNSW-Canberra has developed a real-time high-fidelity air traffic management situation awareness system. The aim of this project is to design high-fidelity agents representing different space objects and vehicles and... Read More

Supervisor:

Born over the warm, moist, tropical oceans, packing winds over 33 m/s (74 mph), and reaching diameters of over 1000 km, the tropical cyclone is the most powerful weather system on Earth.  For many societies, they are... Read More
