PhD opportunities are now available to work on projects jointly supervised across the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes (CLEX) and Bureau of Meteorology. Candidates will be enrolled in one of the CLEX universities and spend significant time at the Bureau of Meteorology. This will allow the student to experience both the University academic and the publicly funded research agency environment.Read More

This project analyzes satellite images and other observational data to study two-way interactions between convection and tropospheric waves. In particular, it investigates how these interactions influence patterns of
convection and clouds. Numerical experiments in the form of high-resolution simulations are designed to support the results.
PhD opportunity: Water, elevated CO2 and growth: plant ecophysiological responses in a Free Air CO2 Enrichment experiment
This project will involve measurements in a cutting-edge global change field experiment to close this knowledge gap by examining plant growth responses to elevated CO2 during repeated drought cycles.Read More
PhD opportunity: Unravelling the role of lags and legacies in explaining the response of grasslands to elevated CO2
This project will apply a state of the art, hierarchical Bayesian modelling framework to determine how past climatic conditions influence current responses to high CO2concentrations. The project will use data from a new, specially-designed experiment, as well as results from past Free-Air Carbon dioxide Enrichment (FACE) and Open-top chamber (OTC) experiments, to close this knowledge gap.Read More
The Postdoctoral Research Associate will work on a new ARC-funded project exploring how vulnerable Australia’s eucalypts are to future droughts. This project will combine data-synthesis, experimental manipulation and modelling to deliver new process-orientated insight into the response of eucalyptus trees to projected changes in the frequency, magnitude and duration of future droughts across Australia.Read More
