We are now seeking to train the next generation of groundwater
specialists to conduct innovative research to address high priority
national and international groundwater challenges. The Centre is
developing a new suite of Flagship Programs, with projects in the
following areas:

. Deepening our understanding of the impacts of unconventional gas and
hydraulic fracturing on groundwater resources;

. Contributing to the successful implementation of the Murray-Darling
Basin Plan;

. Exploring the role that groundwater can play in maintaining
Australia's water security;

. Contributing to the successful realisation of the Northern Australian
development vision;

. Deepening our understanding of the impacts of climate change, climate
variability and population change on Australia's groundwater reserves.

Applications are sought from outstanding students with backgrounds in a
