Generous PhD scholarships to deliver the tools for integrating the mining value chain
Join the Australian Research Council Training Centre for Integrated Operations for Complex Resources and help deliver the vital enabling tools – advanced sensors, data analytics and Artificial Intelligence – for automated, integrated and optimised mining.
All PhD projects include an industry placement and offer a unique opportunity to work on industry-linked interdisciplinary projects with leading researchers and mining industry partners.
Available projects span the complete mining and processing production chain, including but not limited to:
- Draw-point and cave operation and fragmentation sensing
- Gold sensing
- Vibration and accelerometer sensing for early stage roping detection in hydrocyclones
- Measure and monitor particle size distributions so as to divert low value waste
- Machine Learning to link resource to down-stream products
and many more.
