PhD scholarships on offer for Antarctic climate research projects in the
Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Canterbury, New
Zealand.

We currently have a number of atmospheric science research projects
relevant to Antarctic climate available for qualified graduate students.
These projects focus on understanding how greenhouse gases have impacted
Antarctic climate, identifying changes in atmospheric circulation
patterns in the Ross Sea and examining the role of atmospheric forcing
on the formation of sea ice.

The projects on offer are international in nature with close links to
researchers in the United States and Australia. These projects are
highly likely to involve fieldwork in Antarctica..

More information on the department can be found at
<http://www.phys.canterbury.ac.nz>

Successful applicants will be offered a PhD scholarship from the
Department and will be supported in their application for a more
prestigious PhD scholarship from the University of Canterbury.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to view the admission requirements
