PhD Opportunity: Decadal climate variability of the climate system- Climate Change Research Centre, UNSW Australia

 

A PhD top-up scholarship (up to 10k p.a.) is available for candidates successful in gaining an Australian government Research Training Program (RTP) PhD scholarship

 

A PhD research opportunity is open for a talented graduate student to study the ocean and climate dynamics causing decadal and multi-decadal climate variability. This PhD research program will involve the analysis of observational and climate model data as well as performing simulations using a range of ocean and climate models. The project is based at the Climate Change Research Centre (CCRC) at the University of New South Wales (UNSW), Australia, under the supervision of DECRA Fellow Dr Leela Frankcombe and Scientia Professor Matthew England.

 

Graduates with a strong academic record (including Honours Class I or equivalent) in Physics, Mathematics, Engineering or an equivalent quantitative discipline are particularly encouraged to apply. Experience in computational analysis is desirable.

 

The successful candidate will become part of the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes- an international research consortium of five Australian universities (The University of New South Wales, Monash University, The University of Melbourne, The University of Tasmania and The Australian National University) and a suite of outstanding national and international Partner Organizations. The Centre provides excellent opportunities for travel and graduate student development.

 

Questions may be directed to Leela Frankcombe (l.frankcombe@unsw.edu.au).

Expressions of interest including a CV, full academic transcript, and the names of up to three academic referees should be sent to arccss.grad@unsw.edu.au

Note:- this is not an official application, if your _expression_ of interest is accepted we will guide you through the application process.
