Heatwaves have increased in their intensity, frequency and duration. It is now well-established that heatwaves are not stand-alone events, but occur in the presence of other extremes, such as, droughts, extremely high atmospheric pressure, or teleconnections to other atmospheric phenomena. The PhD will undertake a novel examination of the attribution of heatwaves, coincident with other plausible extreme events.
The Centre seeks a highly qualified and motivated individual to create new and innovative data assimilation algorithms for discovering model trajectories that closely track observations in the presence of multi-scale, non-linear and non-Gaussian uncertainties such as those associated with observations and forecasts of clouds, precipitation, aerosols, soil moisture, ice, or ocean colour.
Prof Craig H Bishop is offering a range of PhD projects in environmental data assimilation, ensemble forecasting, dynamics and predictability
This is a three-year postdoctoral position focused on high-resolution modelling of extreme rainfall associated with organised convective storms.
The CLEX node at Monash is offering several PhD scholarships on a competitive basis. The scholarships may cover fees and living expenses for 3 years. Generous travel support for PhD students to visit our international partners exists. Some projects may involve other universities, the CSIRO, the Bureau of Meteorology, or one of our international partners.
Mini Projects During the week you will be working on mini-projects in groups of 5-6. Each group has a mix of participants from different institutions and with different backgrounds. You will have 9 hours scheduled during the week to work on your projects. The projects have been kept purposely broad. We did this so that you, within your groups, can discuss and decide what your main research question is, and what approach you are going to take to address that... View Article

This interdisciplinary project will apply methods from statistical physics, which are only beginning to be used in the environmental sciences, to better exploit such data, advance our basic understanding, and produce more useful models for weather and climate changes.
This PhD project will use climate model simulations to examine how sensitive attribution assessments of high-impact heatwaves to human emissions of carbon dioxide are to the representation of key physical processes.
