PhD Scholarship in Climate Science:

Applications are now being accepted for a PhD scholarship in the Department of Physics at the University of Auckland in New Zealand. The PhD candidate will be working with Dr. Tra Dinh on research relating to the roles of clouds in the climate system as described below.

Clouds are the largest source of uncertainty in climate models' prediction of global climate change. The PhD candidate will carry out numerical simulations using state-of-the-art models of the climate system to study the changes in clouds and the impact of cloud changes on Earth’s global energy budget, hydrological cycle, and atmospheric circulation. Mathematical skills, numerical modelling experience, and knowledge of the physical processes relevant for climate (such as geophysical fluid dynamics, atmospheric radiation and convection, and cloud microphysics) are highly desirable.

Applicants must hold a Master or BSc (Hons) degree in physics or geophysical sciences, including atmospheric science, meteorology, and/or oceanography. Students who are currently still working on their Master thesis are encouraged to apply. The initial application should include a CV and an expression of research interests. Reference letters will be required for the final selection. Please contact Dr. Tra Dinh (t.dinh@auckland.ac.nz) to apply. The position remains open until filled.

Living in Auckland and New Zealand: New Zealand provides world-class environment for living, working, and travelling. Nature and the outdoors are an integral part of Kiwi lifestyle.
