R. H. T. Bates Postgraduate Scholarship 2011 in Royal Society of New Zealand

About Organisation:
We promote, invest in and celebrate excellence in people and ideas, for the benefit of all New Zealanders – and we make telling these stories a priority.

The scholarship, tenable at any New Zealand university for one year, is available to graduates who are registered for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy in the Physical Sciences and Engineering. In accordance with Professor Bates’ love of interdisciplinary research a wide range of students in the physical sciences and engineering will be eligible. Preference will be given to those whose research aims to apply information/image processing to studies in medicine, the physical sciences, astronomy or engineering.

Applicants must have physical sciences or engineering as a significant part of their undergraduate degree. For the purposes of this scholarship, physical sciences shall be deemed to mean physics, chemistry and mathematical and information sciences. At the time of application students must be engaged in postgraduate studies (honours, masters or doctorate). Students in their final year of undergraduate study are ineligible to apply. To receive the scholarship, candidates must be enrolled for a doctorate course at a New Zealand University and must be engaged in the course for the greater part of the period of the Scholarship, i.e. for most, if not all, of 2011. This requirement does not limit the award to New Zealanders; however, it will require a successful candidate to transfer from a masterate or honours course to a doctoral course.
