PhD scholarships available for Climate System Science

Deadline August 22nd for non-Australian/New Zealand permanent residents.
Deadline October 10th for Australian and NewZealand permanent residents.

The ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science is Australia’s
premier University led initiative comprising 5 Universities, CSIRO, the
Bureau of Meteorology and multiple internationally outstanding research
organizations.

The Centre has a series of PhD scholarships available. Based at the
University of New South Wales, successful candidates can expect to
collaborate with partners in the Centre of Excellence in Australia and
overseas. Expressions of interest in any area of Centre-focus are
encouraged. Details of possible supervisors, and their areas of
expertise, are available at <www.climatescience.org.au>.

A targeted scholarship focused on terrestrial processes, and
particularly on how crops can be parameterized in regional or global
climate models is also available. A second targeted scholarship based on
the modelling of urban climates is also available.

Successful applicants will have an outstanding undergraduate record,
with a first class honours (or equivalent) or a Masters (by research)
degree. It is most likely that they will be strong in quantitative sciences.

For outstanding students without Australian or New Zealand permanent
residency, there is a deadline of August 22nd.

Please contact Professor Andy Pitman (<a.pitman@unsw.edu.au>) for
further information. Applicants that find topics or supervisors of
interest at <www.climatescience.org.au> based at one of the Centre’s
partner institutions are welcome to contact Professor Pitman for advice,
or contact other researchers directly.
