Teague - PhD Scholarship

In conjunction with TEAGUE, a global design consultancy with studios in Seattle and Munich, Monash University Art Design & Architecture (MADA) is pleased to offer a PhD Design Research Scholarship opportunity in the field of aerospace design.

This exciting opportunity will suit a top research candidate with interests in aerospace and human factors; backed up by a strong industrial design and technical aptitude, with a desire to apply these skills in a research setting.
