The University of Newcastle is seeking a PhD candidate to undertake doctoral study quantifying uncertainty in climate modelling applied at high resolution. The candidate will be supported through an industry scholarship (APA equivalent) provided by Climate Risk, an industry partner. Climate Risk’s modelling team is based in Newcastle, Australia, and the PhD candidate will also be based in Newcastle.
Climate Risk is a focussed team and we are seeking candidates with a strong values alignment, i.e., a shared interest in understanding and mitigating climate risk. Information about Climate Risk is available here: https://www.climaterisk.com.au/ .
The research is grounded in a more-than-disciplinary context, i.e., seeking to understand and communicate climate risk for the purpose of mitigating risks to human populations. This recent story on ABC Online on ‘The rise of red zones of risk’ is helpful for learning more about the research: https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-10-23/the-suburbs-facing-rising-insurance-costs-from-climate-risk/11624108?nw=0 .
We strongly encourage applications from students of diverse backgrounds, inclusive of age, race, ethnicity, religion, culture, ability, sexuality, and gender.
Applications will be assessed on a rolling basis.
