Forwarded from CLIMLIST... 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.
