Call Open: University of Melbourne- Universität Hamburg Joint PhD Program

Applications Due: 21 October 2019


We are pleased to announce that scholarships are available for Joint PhD candidates who will work on one of the specified topics of the University of Melbourne (UoM) - Universität Hamburg (UHH) program. These scholarships are for PhD candidates to be based at the University of Melbourne, who will spend at least twelve months at the University of Hamburg, Germany. The candidates will be enrolled at both the University of Melbourne and the Universität Hamburg and will be co-supervised by supervisors at both institutions.

The PhD topics open for applications are:

  • Developing non-linear and interactive sea ice emulators
  • Mapping large scale ESM response characteristics and their inherent “reproducibility” with emulators - or limitations
  • Potential adjustments to the raw CMIP6 multi-model ensembles
  • Examining beyond-2100 Earth System feedbacks across the model hierarchy
  • The role of wave-cloud coupling in shaping patterns of clouds


For further details on PhD topics, selection criteria, requirements and to apply, please visit the Australian-German Climate and Energy College website.


Please note the terms and conditions for the applications.
