    Làm PhD tại Úc Dec 18, '07 4:26 AM

    Định nghĩa PhD


    PhD là chữ viết tắt của từ ‘Doctor of Philosophy’, người Việt Nam thường hay gọi là ‘tiến sĩ’, được xem là cao nhất trong các bậc học. Theo một số nhà nghiên cứu, học bậc PhD được công nhận đầu tiên tại Paris (Pháp) vào năm 1150. Tuy nhiên, một số giả thiết khác lại cho rằng PhD xuất hiện đầu tiên tại Đức. Cho đến năm 1861, trường đại học Yale (Mỹ) đã học tập mô hình này của Đức, trao bằng PhD cho các sinh viên trẻ bảo vệ thành công luận án nghiên cứu trong các lãnh vực khoa học và nhân văn. Từ Mỹ, bậc học PhD lan rộng sang Canada vào năm 1900, sau đó gia nhập vào Anh vào năm 1917.

    Đối với một số ngành nghề như giảng viên đại học hay các nhà nghiên cứu tại các phòng nghiên cứu chuyên nghiệp thuộc tổ chức chính phủ, phi chính phủ hay tư nhân, bằng PhD đã và đang trở thành những điều kiện cần thiết.

    Tại Úc, có nhiều con đường để sinh viên chọn lựa tiếp tục học lên PhD. Học sinh theo học các khóa học cử nhân kéo dài 4 năm có thể học PhD nếu được cấp Bằng Cử nhân Danh dự (Bachelor Degree-Honours) do đạt kết quả xuất sắc trong quá trình học trội. Hoặc sau khi tốt nghiệp cử nhân, học sinh có thể tiếp tục học thêm một năm nữa để lấy Bằng Cử nhân Danh dự. Với những du học sinh đã có Bằng Cử nhân tại quê nhà, con đường học thạc sĩ (research-nghiêu cứu hoặc coursework-tín chỉ) giúp sinh viên có cơ hội học tiếp lên PhD.

    Những con đường dẫn đến…PhD.

    Hầu hết các sinh viên tại Úc đều xin học bổng để học PhD. Với các sinh viên Úc hoặc sinh viên quốc tế đã có quốc tịch Úc (Australian citizenship) hoặc visa thường trú (permanent resident visa), nguồn tài trợ học phí đến từ tổ chức chính phủ RTS (Research Training Scheme). Ngoài học phí, sinh viên có thể được cấp học bổng gồm chi phí sinh hoạt nếu đạt kết quả cao trong học tập. Nguồn học bổng này thuộc tổ chức APA (Australian Postgraduate Award) do chính phủ Úc tài trợ với số tiền lên đến gần 20.000 đô Úc/năm/sinh viên. Tuy nhiên những năm gần đây, điều kiện để đạt được học bổng này ngày càng ‘ngặt nghèo’. Hầu hết các trường đại học cũng có nguồn học bổng tương tự. Ngoài nguồn học bổng từ tổ chức APA và các trường đại học, sinh viên còn có thể tìm học bổng được tài trợ bởi các trung tâm nghiên cứu và tập đoàn thương mại lớn.

    Với các sinh viên Việt Nam, con đường đến với sự học PhD thường thông qua:

    - Học bổng AusAID (Australian Agency for International Development - Cơ quan Phát triển Quốc tế Úc) của chính phủ Úc dành cho sinh viên Việt Nam gồm Học bổng Phát triển Úc (Australian Development Scholarship-ADS) và Học bổng Năng lực Lãnh đạo Úc (Australian Leadership Awards Scholarship).

    - Học bổng Endeavour do Bộ Giáo dục-Khoa học và Đào tạo Úc có văn phòng đại diện tại Việt Nam là Cơ quan Giáo dục quốc tế Australia (Australian Education International - AEI) quản lý.

    - Học bổng từ các trường đại học và các tập đoàn thương mại lớn.

    Thời gian trung bình cho một sinh viên học PhD tại Úc là 3,5 năm. Có những người hoàn thành sớm từ 2,5-3 năm, nhưng cũng có người kéo dài đến 4-5 năm. Đầu tiên, sinh viên phải định hướng cho mình đề tài nghiên cứu và bắt đầu hình trình tìm người giám sát (supervisor). Sau khi đã có supervisor, người học bắt đầu con đường nghiên cứu của mình.

    Thường thì thời gian làm PhD được chia làm 2 mốc cơ bản: thời gian đầu (từ 8 tháng đến 1,5 năm) tập trung vào việc phát thảo đề tài với phạm vi giới hạn và kế hoạch cụ thể để trình bày trước một hội đồng giám khảo (candidate confirmation seminar); giai đoạn tiếp theo tập trung vào nghiên cứu, thí nghiệm và tìm giải pháp cụ thể. Trong giai đoạn này, người học cần hoàn tất ít nhất 3 bản báo cáo (conference papers) về đề tài mình đang nghiên cứu để tham dự các hội nghị quốc tế chuyên ngành, 2-3 công trình nghiên cứu (journal articles) được đăng trên các tập san nghiên cứu cho thấy sự đóng góp quan trọng về mặt kiến thức hoặc ứng dụng của kiến thức này trong một chuyên ngành nào đó, và cuối cùng là luận án tốt nghiệp (thesis).

    Nỗi lòng người trong cuộc.

    Theo thống kê của Bộ Giáo dục-Khoa học và Đào tạo Úc (Department of Education, Science and Training-DEST), trong năm 2006, có khoảng 34.000 sinh viên tại Úc theo học PhD trong tổng số hơn 730.000 sinh viên các bậc học khác nhau, trong đó có khoảng 9.000 sinh viên nước ngoài.

    Với các sinh viên Việt Nam, có nhiều ý kiến khác nhau về việc học PhD kể cả với người ngoài cuộc lẫn trong cuộc.

    Với Minh, sinh viên đang làm PhD tại trường Monash (Melbourne), khó khăn ngay từ ban đầu là khi tìm supervisor bởi “đây không phải là con đường ngắn ngủi, ít nhất cũng kéo dài đến 3 năm. Điều quan trọng là mình phải chứng minh để họ thấy và tin tưởng mình có khả năng nghiên cứu và đạt kết quả trong thời gian dài như vậy. Thường thì điều đó cũng được khẳng định phần nào trong quá trình học tập trước đây với những thành quả đã đạt”.

    My, tốt nghiệp đại học Sư phạm tại Việt Nam, hiện đang theo học tiến sĩ ngành Xử Lý Laser (Laser Technology) tại trường Swinburne (Melbourne), đang trong giai đoạn nước rút viết luận án tốt nghiệp, cho biết: “Có thể nói đây là con đường lặng thầm, vất vả và cô đơn vì phải tự mày mò nghiên cứu là chính. Có những lúc làm không ra kết quả, hoặc cứ mãi loay hoay với chuyện viết bài”.

    Còn Thanh, đã hoàn thành luận án tiến sĩ ngành Công nghệ Thông tin (Information Technology) tại trường New South Wales (Sydney) thì học PhD là thử thách lớn nhất từng gặp trong đời, “nhiều lúc thấy mệt mỏi và chán nản cực kỳ. Học PhD không khó, nhưng áp lực liên tục, từ ngày này qua ngày khác, cứ như thế kéo dài suốt 3-4 năm. Có những lúc say mê với kết quả nghiên cứu, sau một đêm ngủ dậy, có thêm tinh thần để vượt khó khăn. Nhưng nhớ lại khoảng thời gian ấy thì đôi lúc thấy sợ quá”.

    Khó khăn, gian nan đến vậy, thế thì nguyên nhân nào khiến các bạn chọn con đường này? T.Vinh, đang học tiến sĩ ngành Hóa Hữu cơ (Organic Chemistry) tại trường ANU (Australian National University - Canberra) tâm sự: “Mình muốn đi theo con đường nghiên cứu khoa học cơ bản. Làm PhD là con đường thuận tiện nhất để hướng tới mục đích này. Tất nhiên đây không phải là con đường duy nhất. Chương trình đại học không thể cung cấp đủ kinh nghiệm và kiến thức cũng như các kỹ năng và khả năng sáng tạo cho một người làm nghiên cứu. Với chương trình PhD, người học phải tự lực nghiên cứu là chính dưới sự hướng dẫn của giáo sư, xây dựng cho mình nền tảng trong thực hành lẫn lý thuyết, đồng thời đóng góp những sáng tạo mới nhất định cho khoa học cơ bản”.

    Tản mạn chuyện học PhD.

    Có thể liệt kê một số lý do học PhD như: để có một cuộc sống tốt đẹp hơn (tiền bạc), được xã hội nể trọng hơn (danh tiếng, bằng cấp), vì mình từ bé đã học giỏi nên cứ tiếp tục học, vì sự kỳ vọng của gia đình v.v. Nếu chỉ vì những lý do đó thì có thể bạn không thể theo đuổi “con đường đau khổ” này đến cùng qua lời tâm sự của những người trong cuộc ở phần trên. Bởi từ khóa dẫn đến thành công của sinh viên PhD phải là đam mê và kiên nhẫn, đam mê học hỏi và sáng tạo trong một thời gian dài.

    Theo lời của Minh dựa trên một bài báo từng đọc thì có đến 50% sinh viên học PhD ‘gãy gánh’ giữa đường do nhiều nguyên nhân như: không nghiên cứu ra kết quả, đi được ngần ấy quãng đường rồi mới phát hiện ra bản thân không thích hợp với công việc nghiên cứu, không chịu được áp lực của việc học, hoặc tìm được công việc phù hợp với mức lương hấp dẫn v.v.

    Chẳng thế mà trong giới sinh viên thường truyền miệng nhau vài định nghĩa vui về PhD như ‘Permanent Head Damage’ (chấn thương sọ não vĩnh viễn) hay ‘Proud Husband and Dad’ (ý muốn nhắn nhủ các anh chàng học thì cứ học, nghiên cứu thì cứ nghiên cứu nhưng đừng quên trách nhiệm của mình trong gia đình). Trên thực tế, có không ít các sinh viên mãi miệt mài với sự nghiệp nghiên cứu khoa học của mình đến mức quên cả thực tế cuộc sống xung quanh.

    Thường thì các sinh viên sau khi hoàn thành PhD có thể tham gia giảng dạy tại các trường đại học, làm việc tại các tổ chức nghiên cứu của chính phủ (government research), bộ phận nghiên cứu và phát triển thuộc các tập đoàn lớn (R&D department) hoặc tự mở doanh nghiệp riêng. Tuy nhiên, với một số du học sinh Việt Nam thì việc ở lại Úc hay về nước cũng là một vấn đề được đặt ra chẳng hạn như chuyện cơ sở hạ tầng có đáp ứng được yêu cầu nghiên cứu hay không. Đó là chưa kể đến những chính sách chiêu hiền đãi sĩ có thu hút được các bạn quay về sau chừng ấy thời gian vất vả dùi mài kinh sử.

    PhD position at University of New South Wales

    Position opening for a PhD student

    The school of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) at UNSW just
    acquired a linkage grant with an industry partner Beacon IT Group
    (http://www.beaconit.com.au) for a research project on Integrating end
    user processes with SOA paradigm. The academic members involved at CSE,
    UNSW are A/Prof. Boualem Benatallah and Dr. Hye-young Helen Paik. The
    project will be conducted at CSE, UNSW in Sydney in close collaboration
    with the industry partner.

    The scholarship on offer through the grant is APA(I) (Australian
    Postgraduate Awards -Industry) scholarship. The annual stipend for 2008
    is $25,627 per annum (tax free). The stipend is paid in fortnightly
    instalments. The industry partner makes upto $6,000 extra contribution
    towards the project. There is also adequate funding for PhD students to
    travel.

    Below is a brief description of the project. Interested candidates can
    contact A/Prof. Benatallah (boualem@cse.unsw.edu.au) or Dr. Paik
    (hpaik@cse.unsw.edu.au) directly.

    Project Title: Integrating end-user processes with SOA paradigm

    Service oriented architecture and business process modelling emerged as
    response to the general problems of enterprise application integration
    (EAI) and enterprise information integration (EII). The technologies
    offer standardised support for integrating heterogeneous resources, data
    sources, and applications in the form of standardised APIs. Clearly,
    professional developers now benefit from high-level and integrated
    access to data, computing and application resources. However, the
    benefits of SOA and business process technologies have not reached the
    end-users who have some knowledge in using IT systems but are not
    professional programmers. This is indeed a large population of user
    base and constitutes a key component of major enterprise and end user
    applications including e-government, e-business, media, e-health. For
    instance, it was estimated in 2001, that in the USA alone 45 millions of
    such users rely on tools such spreadsheet to visualize, manipulate, and
    analyze data. This project proposes to design and develop abstractions,
    models and languages in SOA paradigm which are focused on assisting the
    end-users with their everyday computing tasks and business processes.

    A successful candidate must be able to start on 2nd July 2008.

    A successful applicant should have:

    * University degree in Computer Science or related discipline
    * Excellent oral, written communication and presentation skills
    * Ability to work in a collaborative team environment
    * Good skills in software development/engineering

    Also, to be eligible the applicant must be a citizen of Australia/New
    Zealand or an Australian permanent resident.

    [AU][IT/IS] Two PhD scholarships in IT/IS

    The School of Information Systems and the Rural Social Research Group
    within the Tasmanian Institute of Agricultural Research (TIAR) at the
    University of Tasmania have TWO PhD scholarships available for
    commencement in early 2009.

    Two scholarships, each with a stipend of $30,000 per annum (tax free),
    will be for the study of social issues associated with the adoption of
    advanced Information & Communication Technologies (ICT) in agriculture.
    One scholarship is specifically for research in the Tasmanian DAIRY
    industry, the other for research in the Tasmanian VEGETABLE industry.
    Students from any relevant background (e.g. information systems,
    computing,business management, geography, environmental studies, social
    science,environmental psychology, agriculture) interested in innovation
    and adoption research, social issues associated with ICTs, rural sociology
    or social aspects of agriculture, are encouraged to apply. These
    scholarships are offered with support from CSIRO's Tasmanian ICT Centre
    and with support from TIAR's Vegetable Centre and Dairy Centre. The
    supervisors of this research will be Professor Frank Vanclay (Professor of
    Rural Sociology in TIAR) and Professor Peter Marshall (Professor of
    Information Systems in the School of Computing and Information Systems).

    In addition to the stipends, each project has ample operational funding to
    cover all fieldwork costs as well as conference funding and training
    costs. Both projects have close connections to industry and each student
    will be embedded in larger programs with ample support.

    One of the ICT scholarships is in the form of a "top-up" scholarship.
    This means that the student would need to be successful in securing an
    Australian Post-Graduate Award (APA or University scholarship).These
    Scholarships are available only to Australian citizens. Students
    will be expected to have received (or expect to receive) first class
    Honours or upper second class Honours. In addition to academic merit,
    students will also be selected on the basis of their 'fit' with the
    project and their interest in the research topic.

    The scholarships will be available until filled by an appropriate
    person. However, the nominal deadline for completed applications in
    the first instance will be 31 October 2008, especially as this is the
    closing date for university scholarships and APAs.

    Please discuss your intentions with Professor Peter Marshall or Professor
    Frank Vanclay early on. In addition to the normal University of Tasmania
    (UTAS) application forms, applicants will be requested to write a short
    1-2 page proposal to assist in the selection process.

    Một học bổng Chemical Eng tại đại học Queensland, Australia

    Một người quen báo cho mình biết thông tin về học bổng ngành Chemical Eng nên mình POST thông tin này lên để bạn nào quan tâm có thể thử cơ hội


    Postgraduate Scholarship in Chemical Engineering – The University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia
    SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING
    The School of Engineering at The University of Queensland is renowned for its world-class engineering education and pioneering research. Boasting an annual research income in excess of $22 million, the School is one of the leading providers of engineering research in Australia and houses more than 400 world-class academic staff, research fellows and research students. This means that the successful applicant will become part of a broad research community that offers huge opportunity and exposure. This scholarship is being funded as part of an ARC (Australian Research Council) Discovery project which investigates the behaviour of saline water interfaces. Interfaces with salt solutions are ubiquitous within nature (e.g. the ocean surface) and biological systems (e.g. blood cell membranes). However our understanding of the specific interactions between the salt ions and the interfaces is still limited by empiricism. This project aims to expand our understanding of the molecular phenomena and properties of saline water–air interfaces that underpin industrially important processes such as micron bubble coalescence and dissolved air flotation in water desalination. The research will develop efficient and sustainable processes for industries to minimise energy, water and chemical usage, and the impacts of water pollution and tailings disposal. The findings will have direct benefits in dissolved air flotation used in desalination to produce drinking water.
    The role The applicant will work in close collaboration with the research team of the ARC Discovery Project DP0985079: “Molecular phenomena and engineering of saline water-air interfaces”. The applicant’s main focus will be the molecular modelling (Monte Carlo and Molecular Dynamics) of the air-liquid interfaces. This is the key to breaking the reliance on empiricism in the understanding of flotation and desalination (or similar) processes that use saline water. The molecular modelling will be used in conjunction with other fluid modelling techniques to match results from experiments performed by other members of the research group. This is a very interesting area of research with very wide applicability so that the applicant has greater freedom to progress their research and/or academic career after your PhD. The applicant will join a research group with world class experimental facilities such as atomic force microscope and a vibrational sum frequency generator and will receive some exposure to these technologies. The research team involved with the ARC Discovery project has a strong record of research and publication to give the successful applicant the best start to their research career. The successful applicant will be required to communicate their results as papers to journals and presentations to relevant conferences. Interstate and overseas travel may be possible if high quality research outcomes are achieved.
    The person Applicants must possess a Bachelor Degree in Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Applied Mathematics or similar. Previous experience with molecular modelling or study in interfacial type phenomena will be an advantage but is not essential. Emphasis will be placed on the quality and potential of the applicant rather than specific past experience. The applicant will need to work well within a team environment to achieve the best research results and demonstration of these capabilities will be of an advantage. The application process is open to both Australian and International applicants.

    Remuneration The remuneration is through a tax-free stipend of not less than $26,669 per annum. This may be increased to attract high quality applicants. A relocation allowance is available for applicants outside of Queensland.
    Contact Further information can be obtained from Professor Anh V. Nguyen on +61 7 3365 3665 or by email: anh.nguyen@eng.uq.edu.au or Dr Greg Birkett on +61 7 3365 3813 or by email: g.birkett@uq.edu.au.
    Applications Candidates should email their full CV to Professor Anh V. Nguyen.
    Interviews are planned to start as early as 3 March 2009 but applications will continue to be accepted until the positions are filled.
