Joint PhD opportunities
We are currently recruiting joint PhD candidates to join the Jerusalem - Melbourne Joint PhD (JM - JPhD). Each supervisory team oversees research projects which may have The University of Melbourne or the Hebrew University of Jerusalem as the home institution.
Candidates spend a minimum of 12 months at both universities, providing a multidisciplinary cohort experience with other JM - JPhD candidates.
Joint PhD candidates will benefit from the collective resources, networks and expertise of supervisors at The University of Melbourne and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Funding for each candidate will include tuition fees, a full living allowance (stipend), health insurance and travel allowance. At the successful completion of the program, each candidate will be eligible to receive a PhD, recognised by testamurs from each of the two universities.
