The School of Geography, Planning and Environmental Management, The
University of Queensland, Australia is offering a PhD Scholarship for an
Australian or International student to join us to work on a project to
quantify the effect of trees on snow drift, cover and melt processes in
the Australian Alps using a range of techniques including Eddy
Covariance and Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS). This research is
part of an ongoing program of research involving The University of
Queensland, The University of Western Australia and Snowy Hydro Ltd., to
develop new understanding of the hydrometeorology of the alpine
catchments of the Snowy Mountains Hydroelectric Scheme in response to
inter-annual climate variability and longer term climate change. The
successful applicant will be based at The University of Queensland in
Brisbane.

Applicants should possess a first class Honours degree with experience
in boundary layer meteorology including preferably the application of
eddy covariance (EC) to research of surface – atmosphere energy
exchanges. Previous field experience in alpine areas would be an
advantage. Students with excellent data coding/programming/"big-data"
skills (such as with the Matlab, Python and/or R programs) that can be
applied to analysis of EC and DTS datasets will be favourably
considered. Applicants should be a team player with a strong
professional work ethic. Applicants should have excellent communication
skills in terms of both written and spoken English Language expression.

The base stipend will be at the rate of AUD $26,288 per annum (2016
rate) tax-free for three years with the possibility of a six month
extension in approved circumstances. A top-up grant of $5000 per year
will also be available.
