PhD Scholarship in bespoke body armour systems for the Australian Army

A fully funded PhD Scholarship is available for an outstanding candidate to work on a project at the University of Canberra in collaboration with the Defence Science and Technology Group investigating performance and comfort improvements achievable with bespoke body armour systems. This is an area of research focus for the Defence Science and Technology Group and researchers at the University of Canberra. A key focus of the project will be on the female soldier. Data collection will be undertaken at Army bases across Australia, as well as at the University of Canberra. The research project will also involve industry experience at the Defence Science and Technology Group, Melbourne. This is an exciting experience for a PhD candidate based at the University of Canberra to collaborate closely with researchers at the Defence Science and Technology Group, Melbourne, as well as collaborate with other other military researchers in Canada, the US, New Zealand and the UK as part of a collaborative research program.
