Capital Markets Cooperative Research Centre (CMCRC) PhD Scholarship

Capital Markets Cooperative Research Centre

Substantial scholarships are offered to exceptional students in finance, IT, econometrics and related disciplines, such as actuarial studies, who are capable of undertaking PhD research in financial and health markets. The applied research involves partnering with stock exchanges, regulators, fund managers, investment banks and health services providers in Australia and around the world. Participating universities include University of New South Wales, University of Technology, Sydney, University of Sydney, Macquarie University, University of South Australia, Wollongong University, University of Western Sydney, Federation University Australia or an overseas university associated with the CMCRC, such as the University of Reading. The CMCRC provides a well-resourced research environment for work in capital markets. CMCRC research aims to obtain a better understanding of financial and health markets and the provision of technology solutions, to create better markets locally, regionally, and globally. The research focus of the CMCRC is market integrity and the protection of markets against fraudulent and illegal trading. Research areas also include the analysis and processing of data relevant to financial markets and health markets.
Eligibility: Applicants must: have an exceptional academic record and demonstrated research ability; hold at least a first class honours degree or a master degree by research; and have a degree in one of the following disciplines: finance, econometrics, actuarial studies, information technology, data mining or text mining. International students are eligible to apply; however, the CMCRC does not pay university tuition fees for international students. International students can apply to their university or faculty for a fee scholarship, or fee waiver, but this is a matter between the student and the university. It is particularly important for international students to demonstrate the quality of their qualification, their capacity for research and their ability in written and spoken English. Short-listed applicants will be required to attend an interview.
