Holocene riverine environments along the Central Murray river
Situated immediately below the confluence of the Murray and Darling Rivers, the Central Murray River is characterized by an amazing geomorphic and environmental diversity, and has likely played a crucial role for Aboriginal peoples since their arrival in the region. This PhD will examine changes to this system over the Holocene and following European arrival in Australia by applying a range of sedimentary, geomorphic and geochemical methods for palaeoenvironmental reconstruction.
SUPERVISOR: This PhD Project would be supervised by Dr Samuel Marx (SEALS, University of Wollongong). Co-supervision by Dr Jan-Hendrik May and Dr Amy Prendergast (School of Geography, the University of Melbourne).
SCHOLARSHIP: The applicant will receive a full stipend (living allowance) of up to $28,092 per year. The student will also receive funding support to attend conferences during their candidature from the School. All costs of the project are covered by funds from the Project (this includes flights to remote locations, and field accommodation). Position to commence in 2021
To submit your interest, please email a copy of your transcripts, CV and other relevant documentation to Dr Samuel Marx (School of Earth, Atmospheric and Life Sciences, University of Wollongong, firstname.lastname@example.org) for consideration by 20th of September 2020
