grant is available for applicants of any nationality in the
joint University of Trieste/ICTP/OGS PhD programme on Earth
Science, Fluid Dynamics and Mathematics, under the supervision
of myself, Adrian Tompkins, and Fred Kucharski.
- The nature of convective clustering onset and break up
- Are clustered states “sticky”? – is there a hysteresis behaviour?
- The sensitivity of clustering to boundary conditions such as the surface temperature
- How can clustering be represented in larger scale models?
observations support modelling studies?
Candidates can have a background in mathematics, physics or meteorology. Experience in meteorology is not necessary as ICTP offers a full range of courses that can be followed in the first year of the PhD to provide the required background; thus a strong motivation for the research topic is sufficient. Good experience in programming (particularly in FORTRAN) is definitely an advantage, however.
ICTP is an international research centre located directly on the Adriatic sea in north-east Italy, 8km from the city of Trieste, and a short drive to the Alps. It is vibrant international environment with over 4000 international researchers and students each year attending a wide range of conferences, schools and workshops. The working language at the centre is English.
entry requirement for a PhD is a Masters degree equivalent of an
Laurea Magistrale. However, international
applicants lacking a masters degree can alternatively demonstrate
that they have the necessary
qualifications to enter a PhD programme in the country of their
the PhD programme:
