PhD Opportunity on cloud-climate interaction over the Great Barrier Reef, Australia


We are starting a new initiative to study interactions between the cloud cover over the Great Barrier Reef (GBR), the regional trade winds, the underlying sea surface temperature (SST) and the wider regional climate.  This research will initially focus on employing satellite observations (MODIS and Himawari-8) to develop a comprehensive climatology of the cloud cover over the GBR. It is envisioned that ideal case studies will also be studied, including numerical simulations.   


We seek a motivated PhD student with interests in working with satellite 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.  


Closing date for all applicants: 27 November 2018


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


Please contact Prof. Steven Siems ( for further information.
