PhD Study Opportunities

Are you interested in Graduate Research?  Explore some of the PhD Study Opportunities at UNSW Canberra.  We offer a diverse range of Scholarships Opportunities to domestic and international students to suit you and your situation.

Scholarships of $35,000 (AUD) are available for PhD applicants who achieved H1 (High Distinction) in their undergraduate program and/or have completed a Masters by Research.

Lynne completed her PhD at the Australian National University, after moving to Australia from Scotland.  After several postdoctoral positions (University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Australian National University and University of Strathclyde) she took up a lectureship at UNSW Canberra in 1999. 

 She currently teaches course contributions at all levels of the BSc Chemistry program, and is the Chemistry 1 laboratory coordinator.

Her main research interests include: synthesis and study of redox-active and luminescent transition metal complexes; applications of such complexes in sensor systems, light-activated molecular devices, supramolecular assemblies and therapeutic approaches; electrosynthesis of green energetic materials.
