Coupling Cold Air Outbreaks (CAOs) and Extreme Weather in the Australian Region

Main Supervisor: Dr Yi Huang
Co-supervisor: Prof Todd Lane

Cold Air Outbreaks (CAOs) are known as hotbeds of convective and often severe weather systems. Wintertime cold and rainfall extremes in the southern part of Australia are often associated with CAOs. This project aims to investigate the dynamical, thermodynamical, and microphysical processes of CAOs using new field observations, (re)analysis datasets, satellite data, flooding information, and numerical simulations.

Ideal PhD candidates must demonstrate a genuine interest in meteorology and expertise in analysing large datasets. Graduates with a strong academic record (e.g. Honours Class I or equivalent) in Physics, Atmospheric Science, Mathematics, Engineering or an equivalent quantitative discipline are particularly encouraged to apply. For qualified and competitive candidates support will be provided to apply for the Graduate Research Scholarships available at the University of Melbourne.

_expression_ of Interest Deadline: 31 July 2020

Please contact Dr Yi Huang ( for further information. Please submit your _expression_ of interest as a single pdf including a cover letter, a CV (including publications), academic transcripts, and the contact information for up to three academic referees to Dr Yi Huang.
