Looking for a PhD or Masters that can help change the world? Join the Fight Food Waste Cooperative Research Centre (FFW CRC) and contribute to solving an enormous industry defined problem – the issue of food waste.

It is an exciting time to be part of such an important movement, with the spotlight shining brighter and brighter on food waste around the world, and within Australia. Contribute to this wicked challenge of halving global food waste by 2030.

What is on offer?

The FFW CRC has 30 PhD and 12 Masters opportunities at our eight participating Universities. Opportunities are available over next three years as more projects are established with our industry partners.

PhD candidates will need a base scholarship from one of our eight research partners to which a top-up scholarship from the FFW CRC totalling $100,000 will be applied. Together these will provide a living allowance/stipend of $35,000 per annum (tax-free), travel to the annual conference, contribution to research expenses, a Graduate Certificate in Management (or equivalent) and a ‘completion bonus’. This will be a four-year commitment.

Masters students will require a Bachelors degree or extensive relevant experience in industry. The successful Masters by Research candidates will receive $50,000 scholarship from FFW CRC. This will be used for research and personal expenses. Masters candidates do not require a base scholarship from their host university.
