We aspire to offer the very best facilities and support to attract the brightest and most innovative researchers. A key component of this are the post graduate opportunities offered in the form of the SIMS Masters Program in Marine Science and Management and the SIMS Foundation Doctoral Fellowships.
For details of the program click here.
SIMS Doctoral Fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis and play a significant role in encouraging students to undertake research at PhD level.
A panel of highly qualified scientists assess the applications. Criteria for awarding the fellowships include the track record of the applicant, the quality of the project, and the relevance of the project to SIMS and its research themes. Recipients are listed below.
