The project

The CRC RACE for 2030 Pathways to Net Zero Precincts (NZP) project has been awarded to Curtin University for a three year period and includes several PhD scholarships. The project’s overarching research question is: How do we integrate appropriate design, technologies and governance models to enable net zero to work effectively in different urban fabrics?  In order to address this fundamental question, the NZP project will address three key research gaps namely: the identification of NZP certification pathways, NZP distributed energy resources and grid integration pathways, and NZP governance pathways. Three PhDs will be in these research areas. The focus is on policy and practice, and thus candidates need experience in one or other of these three delivery areas.

Scholarship value
RACE for 2030 will provide a living stipend scholarship for 3 years of $38,000 per annum (tax exempt). RACE for 2030 does not cover international tuition fees if they apply. RACE for 2030 will also supply up to $3,000 per annum for expenses for the candidate, for items such as a computer, publishing fees, travel or conference costs. We encourage female-identifying and Indigenous applicants to apply.
