General oppurtunities

The ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes offers a range of graduate student opportunities.

Students are enrolled in one of our five universities, however most projects will be supervised across universities and co-supervised by experts from the CSIRO, Bureau of Meteorology, or one of our international partners.

You will join our national cross-institutional Graduate Program, which provides bespoke training in fundamentals of climate science, and technical and communication skills. We also offer a mentoring program and provide generous support for our students to spend time at institutions other than where they enrolled, including our international partners.

Climate Science is a highly quantitative discipline. You will have a quantitative honours or masters degree in an area such as: mathematics, statistics, physics, hydrology, oceanography, meteorology, or engineering. We are also interested in students with strong quantitative skills who come from a biology, physical geography, or environmental science background. There are always exceptions and you are always welcome to contact us.

If you are interested in joining us as a PhD, MSc, or Honours student, please send your CV, copies of academic transcripts and any publications, and a statement of research interests to our Graduate Director, Dr Melissa Hart- melissa.hart@unsw.edu.au.
