Several PhD projects are available under Chinese Australian Scholarship program. Projects include detailed Organic- Inorganic geochemical processes associated with the recovery of the 3 largest extinction events of the past 600 million years and conventional and non conventional energy reserves. A range of other projects are available for both national (Australian residents) and international scholars. The projects are funded under a newly awarded large Australian Research Council National Competitive grant and Discovery Outstanding Research to Professor Kliti Grice.
