Dear Colleagues Prof John Church FAA, Prof Trevor McDougall FRS and I are excited to advertise the following PhD project within the School of Mathematics and Statistics and the Climate Change research Centre at UNSW, Sydney, Australia. Project Title: Quantifying Global Water Cycle Change using Ocean Observations Project Description: Global rates of rainfall and evaporation are amplifying rapidly as a consequence of global warming. Recent studies have suggested that this 'water cycle' could be amplifying faster than global climate models had predicted. More accurate quantification of water cycle change and its causes is urgently needed. Changes in the water cycle leave an imprint on the ocean by changing ocean salinity. The candidate will quantify water cycle change based on new observations of ocean salinity and using novel methods developed by the supervisory team. These findings will help improve predictions of water cycle change that are relied upon by society. The projects is funded through a new lucrative UNSW Scientia PhD scheme and offers 4-years of funding with a tax-free stipend of $40K/annum and up to $10K/annum towards research costs. The scheme is open to all nationalities. We encourage graduates with training in highly numerate disciplines such as Physics, Mathematics and Engineering and related fields to apply. The scheme’s selection process is also favourable to those who have also pursued opportunities beyond academia, such as a career in industry or not for profit sectors. The candidate should have a demonstrated interest in tackling global environmental challenges. We particularly encourage women and those from backgrounds which are underrepresented in STEM such as Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islanders to apply. For eligibility for the Scientia PhD, applicants should contact me via email (email@example.com) attaching your CV and complete an expression of interest (http://www.2025.unsw.edu.au/apply/ - search based on the project title) before the 20th of July 2018. Sincerely Dr Jan D.
