PhD Opportunity in Precipitation and Mountain Meteorology Research in Australia


The Australian Research Council has recently awarded a Linkage grant to Monash University (Australia) in collaboration with the Australian Bureau of Meteorology, Snowy Hydro, Hydro Tasmania and the University of Wyoming (USA). The aim of this research is to investigate the dynamical and microphysics mechanisms that produce wintertime precipitation across the alpine regions of south eastern Australia including Tasmania. In particular, we seek to better appreciate the development of precipitation in pristine clouds that are commonly observed to be composed of supercooled liquid water.    


We seek a motivated PhD student with interests in both field observations and numerical modelling. An ideal PhD candidate for this research must demonstrate a genuine interest in meteorology and expertise in coding and data analysis.  Graduates with a strong academic record (including Honours Class I or equivalent) in Physics, Atmospheric Science, Mathematics, Engineering or an equivalent quantitative discipline are particularly encouraged to apply.  


Fieldwork will commence in July 2018. 


Closing date for Australian/NZ citizens and/or permanent residents: 24 October 2017

Closing date for all others: 24 October 2017


Applicants please include a CV, full academic transcript, and the names of up to three academic referees.


Please contact A/Prof. Steven Siems ( for further information.
