Phd Scholarship in Stochastic Modeling, within Multidisciplinary Public Transport Research Collaboration
Monash University

School of Mathematical Sciences

Closing date: 30th September 2015

Monash University's School of Mathematical Sciences is seeking an outstanding PhD candidate to work on a stochastic modeling project entitled: "Simulating Bus and Tram Priority in Traffic Flows". The project will be supervised by Dr Tim Garoni (, and will be one component of a large multidisciplinary initiative.

The initiative involves six faculties from Monash, who will be working together with industry partners to investigate a diverse range of research topics on Sustainable and Effective Public Transport (SEPT) as part of the Monash University Public Transport Research Group, one of the leading research groups in the field.

Industry partners for this program include Public Transport Victoria, Metro Trains, Yarra Trams, VicRoads, TransDev Melbourne and BusVic.

The initiative is one of the new Monash Graduate Research Interdisciplinary Programs (GRIPs) that provide collaborative research, industry training, mentoring and internship opportunities to PhD students. Eighteen PhD scholarships will be funded under this scheme.

The SEPT-GRIP includes an advanced, collaborative professional development program based in the field with industry. Scholarship: $25,849 p.a. (tax free, indexed annually) over 3 three years (plus 6 month extension option)
