UNSW Scientia PhD Scholarship (4 yrs @ 40k p.a.).    This project aims to understand the cycling of heat in the oceans during El Niño Southern Oscillation events, including the role of diabatic ocean processes such as surface fluxes and diffusive mixing, to uncover how heat is transferred from the atmosphere to the ocean and into the interior in the Pacific Ocean.  The project will focus on the evolution of ocean dynamics and heat uptake during the ENSO cycle, and how this may change in the future, using new observations and state-of-the-art model simulations.  The scholarships come with a tax-free stipend of 40k p.a. over 4 years and include full tuition waivers and an additional 10k p.a. project costs for travel and career development.  We seek expressions of interest from both national and international students with an outstanding track record in quantitative sciences, particularly mathematics, physics, fluid dynamics or engineering.  The supervisor team includes Matthew England, Ryan Holmes, Jan Zika, and Shane Keating.  The project also includes the opportunity to work for extended visits to some of the world's leading ocean and climate modelling agencies including GFDL/NOAA, NCAR, and the UK NOC.  Closing date: July 20.  Further details available here or contact M.England@unsw.edu.au
