Dear colleagues


An opportunity exists at The Australian National University for a highly motivated PhD candidate to extend our current understanding of Australia’s pre-20th century weather and climate extremes such as heatwaves, droughts, and extreme rainfall events using a range of scientific and historical sources.


Datasets compiled during this project will help extend the longest running instrumental climate records in Australia, providing a stronger foundation for assessing recently observed variability and extremes. These records will be used to help improve climate risk assessment needed for future climate change planning and adaption.


For further information please see:


All the best
