PhD Opportunity: How complex should a land surface model be to accurately predict extremes?

This project aims to build the simplest model of the terrestrial biosphere that the data can support. The project will combine a data-driven approach with the principles of optimality theory. By delivering a simpler, data- and theory-driven model we will unlock new understanding about climate model behaviour to improve predictions of climate extremes. The student will receive a stipend of 40K per year for four years, as well as up to $10k each year for career development.

PhD Scholarship: Latent heat balance dynamics and heatwaves in cities

This project will connect plant water use and stomatal conductance models differentiated by vegetation-soil systems with land surface models to provide new insight into the impacts of the built environment on moisture fluxes that influence heatwave intensity. Then it will investigate the climate impacts of the dynamic response of greenery in extreme heat conditions.
