AINSE Postgraduate Research Awards

The Australian Institute of Nuclear Science and Engineering (AINSE) was established in 1958. It arranges the training of scientific researchers, as well as the award of scientific research studentships, in matters associated with nuclear science and engineering.


AINSE offers awards for postgraduate students whose research projects are associated with nuclear science or its applications. Students must also require access to the unique national facilities at the Australian Nuclear Science & Technology Organisation (ANSTO), Lucas Heights, NSW.

Postgraduate research awards are offered to suitably qualified students who wish to undertake studies in nuclear science for a higher degree at a member university of AINSE. 

Applications are particularly encouraged in fields related to the research activities of ANSTO.
