I have a fully funded scholarship available! Please apply!
Pretty much everyone, but I assume that you are are worth my time, so please don't let me down. Obviously, having attended courses like Artificial Intelligence (search, heuristics, planning etc.) would be invaluable, but also general computer science courses like Complexity Theory / Theory of Computation, or even Graph Theory could suffice. Just convince me that you have what it takes to be successful! I have high expectations from anybody I supervise, but in exchange I offer an for-me-unhealthy amount of supervision and guidance as payback. Also, my field is super-interesting, and there is a lot to explore, so take the opportunity!
First of all, write your email with care, I do not want to see obvious mistakes and carelessness. Don't worry if you are not perfect in writing (or speaking) English, I do not care about this! But I care about the effort you put in. I will let you decide what to put into your application, but clearly I require a transcript and a few sentences about your background and why you would like to pursue a PhD under my supervision at ANU in the field of planning. I might then give you a very few papers to read so we can have an interview about it. Pass that and we see further.
I receive applications from all over the world thus with all different kinds of traditions regarding the usage if titles. To create a common ground, let me explain a few rules:
I add all this info since I get so many variants like "Dr. Pascal", which is just wrong. :)
Read the ANU PhD scholarship info page and some more information on ANU MPhil and PhD scholarships and applications. Some lessons about pursuing a PhD can also be learned here. :)
If you are a great student, then of course I would love to supervise you! Sadly, there is always limited funding, so I cannot accept everybody. PhD positions in planning from everywhere around the world are regularly posted over the following two mailing lists, so you might consider subscribing them - only if your application with me is isn't successful! ;)
