[Met-jobs] PhD scholarship at University of Auckland, New Zealand

PhD Scholarship in Climate Science:

Applications are now being accepted for a PhD scholarship in the
Department of Physics at the University of Auckland in New Zealand. The
PhD candidate will be working with Dr. Tra Dinh on research relating to
the roles of clouds in the climate system as described below.

Clouds are the largest source of uncertainty in climate models’
prediction of global climate change. The PhD candidate will carry out
numerical simulations using state-of-the-art models of the climate
system to study the changes in clouds and the impact of cloud changes on
Earth’s global energy budget, hydrological cycle, and atmospheric
circulation. Mathematical skills, numerical modelling experience, and
knowledge of the physical processes relevant for climate (such as
geophysical fluid dynamics, atmospheric radiation and convection, and
cloud microphysics) are highly desirable.

Applicants must hold a Master or BSc (Hons) degree in physics or
geophysical sciences, including atmospheric science, meteorology, and/or
oceanography. Students who are currently still working on their Master
thesis are encouraged to apply. The initial application should include a
CV and an expression of research interests. Reference letters will be
required for the final selection. Please contact Dr. Tra Dinh
(t.dinh@auckland.ac.nz) to apply. The position remains open until filled.

Living in Auckland and New Zealand: New Zealand provides world-class
environment for living, working, and travelling. Nature and the outdoors
