We are offering a PhD scholarship in partnership with Victoria University of Wellington for applicants with Physics or Engineering backgrounds to complete a PhD in Physics, specifically in the field of Metrology.

We make judgements every day based on light scattered by surfaces around us. Should I eat it? How much would I pay for it? Is it real? As new materials and advanced measurement techniques become available, the need for traceable measurements of ‘appearance’ is growing in a range of industries such as computer graphics, automotive coatings and lighting design.

The project that the recipient of this scholarship will work on aims to improve methods of bidirectional and integrating sphere transmittance measurements to support those industries.
