Dr Fang Xia’s groupat Murdoch University (www.murdoch.edu.au) is seeking high caribre PhDstudents to do research in the areas of extractive metallurgy or mineralscience. Murdoch University is located at the beautiful coastal city,Perth, the capital city of Western Australia. Perth is the 4th largest cityin Australia and has been one of the most liveable cities in the world formany years (ranked 9th in 2015). It is a very nice place to study, to work,and to enjoy life.


Dr Xia’s research has been focused onunderstanding the mechanism and kinetics of metal extraction processes(extractive metallurgy), and minerals formation and alteration processes(mineral science), using standard laboratory techniques as well as advancedcharacterizing techniques including the state-of-the-art facilities at theAustralian Synchrotron (e.g., in situ X-ray diffraction, or small angleX-ray scattering) and at Australian Nuclear Science and TechnologyOrganization (e.g., small angle neutron scattering, or neutrondiffraction). During the candidature, you will have the chance of going toMelbourne and Sydney to do research as well.


Murdoch Universityhas been very strong in metallurgical engineering and is well known tolocal and international organisations. The metallurgical engineeringdepartment has educated numerous metallurgists for Australia’smulti-billion-dollar mineral industry, and fresh graduates’ annual salaryis often greater than $100,000 Australian dollars. It is so easy to get ahighly paid job (especially in Western Australia) so few domestic studentsstay to do PhD. Hence we are seeking international PhD candidates to doresearch in extractive metallurgy or mineral science. Once completed, youwill have the chance to get a permanent resident visa in Australia and workeither in the mineral industry, or in the research organizations anduniversities.
