A merit-based PhD scholarship is available for the holder to conduct research in a project, funded by the Australian Research Council Discovery Project scheme (ARC DP180100143).There is a growing demand to engage students in scientific thinking process and build their problem-solving capabilities through evidence-based teaching strategies. This project investigates how students develop creative and critical thinking skills as well as scientific understanding while constructing visual explanations (science diagrams) in groups. The project will also develop and evaluate teaching strategies to better support students’ scientific thinking skills and understanding.The PhD student will interact with secondary school science teachers and students, video-record classroom interactions, conduct interviews, analyse class videos and diagrams, write a doctoral thesis, and contribute to writing peer-reviewed journal articles.The successful PhD student will be supervised by a team of experienced science education researchers (Dr Mihye Won and Professor David F. Treagust) from the STEM Education Research Group (formerly Science and Mathematics Education Centre—SMEC) at Curtin University, Perth, Australia.A merit-based PhD scholarship is available for the holder to conduct research in a project, funded by the Australian Research Council Discovery Project scheme (ARC DP180100143).There is a growing demand to engage students in scientific thinking process and build their problem-solving capabilities through evidence-based teaching strategies.

An opportunity is available for an outstanding PhD scholar in the area of soil organic carbon monitoring with the School of Molecular and Life Sciences in the Faculty of Science and Engineering at Curtin University. Maintaining or increasing soil organic carbon (C) is critical to tackling climate change. It is also the most important element controlling soil health, which enables soils to be resilient. Soil organic carbon (C) exerts positive effects on soil physical and chemical properties and increases the soil’s capacity to provide ecosystem services (e.g. the provision of food and the regulation of climate). The amount of soil organic C (per unit area of land) depends on the annual inputs of biomass, the type of land management, the soil type and the vulnerability of soil organic C to decomposition. This is why soil organic C is highly variable in space, across landscapes and down the soil profile. Current methods for measuring the variability in soil organic C and for monitoring its change over time are expensive and inefficient. There’s an urgent need to develop cost-efficient methods to assess and monitor changes in soil organic C, for example, for on-farm C accounting. The new methods must be based on a solid understanding of soil C, its composition and the processes that lead to both its accumulation and loss. The aim of this project is to develop a robust, practical and cost-efficient methodology for measuring the organic C stocks (and C composition) in the soil, for quantifying its variation across landscapes and for monitoring its change over time. The successful candidate will gain experience in soil organic carbon sciences, statistical analyses, new soil sensing methods, empirical modelling, multivariate statistics, machine learning, and current methodologies for soil C accounting. 
Value
