Fisheries Research Development Cooperation PhD Scholarship

Interested in Aquaculture and sustainable food production?
Aquaculture has grown rapidly worldwide. One of the main challenges the industry faces is its reliance on unsustainable fish meal as a feed ingredient. Insects are a natural part of the diet of many fish species, which makes them a promising alternative to the use of fish meal in aquaculture diets.
Based on the results from our pilot studies, this project, which is co-funded by the Fisheries Research Development Cooperation (FRDC), and linked to a small local company, Future Green Solutions, will explore the viability of insect meal produced from Black Soldier Fly larvae as a food source for growing fin fish. As part of a multidisciplinary team, you will explore the growth performance and palatability of both rainbow trout and barramundi when fed varying amounts of insect meal. We are looking for a dynamic individual with practical abilities and an interest in aquaculture nutrition and diet formulation that has the drive to help shape this exciting PhD project.

VOGA PhD Scholarship in Rigs to Reef Ecology

Vermilion Oil & Gas Australia Pty Ltd have donated funds to The University of Western Australia to establish the VOGA PhD Scholarship in Rigs to Reef Ecology. The successful recipient will be required to participate in research in relation to the role that offshore oil and gas platforms play as “novel ecosystems.” Thousands of oil and gas platforms are distributed across the world’s coastal seas and as they age and their reservoirs become non-commercial, such platforms are “decommissioned”.
There is increasing interest in assessing whether these platforms have effectively become artificial reefs supporting significant marine life, and as such, should be knocked over but not removed. The concept of “rigs-to-reefs” where effectively these rigs have become “novel ecosystems” has however been little explored from an ecological perspective. What is the diversity, abundance and biomass of reef fish associated with platforms and how does this compare to regional natural reefs?

Agricultural Scholarship for Understanding P dynamics in soil

The Postgraduate Research scholarship is part of the Grains Research & Development Corporation (GRDC) project “Increasing profits from N, P and K fertiliser inputs into the evolving cropping sequences in the Western Region”. The cost of fertilisers is the highest variable cost for grain producers in the Western Region, but decision gaps exist in N, P and K fertilizer management because of the climate and farming systems changes that occurred after most crop nutrition knowledge had been obtained.
Soil P has accumulated across much of the region, with a recent survey showing that 70% of soils have sufficient soil P levels. With fertiliser decisions being based on the premise of P deficiency, it is clear that P fertiliser management in Western Region soils must change, but the knowledge needed to guide such a change is inadequate.
A PhD student will join the multidisciplinary team including personnel from Universities (UWA, Adelaide Univ), WA Department of Primary Industry and Regional Development, and fertiliser companies to work on characterising the priming effect of relatively small amounts of starter-P fertiliser on root and shoot growth of wheat, canola and narrow-leaf lupins. There is flexibility in terms of focussing the project, with a number of possible aspects (eg. soil science, root physiology, plant nutrition, genetics, agronomy, modelling, etc.). Appropriate research and mentoring support will be provided, with travelling opportunities to relevant conferences in Australia and overseas.
