About the Project

Clouds are the largest source of uncertainty in climate models’ prediction of global climate change. The students 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.

What we are looking for in a successful applicant:

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 be eligible for entry to the PhD programme and have a background in physics or geophysical sciences, specifically atmospheric science, meteorology, and/or oceanography.


To investigate the interactions between clouds, circulation and climate and to better constrain model prediction of climate change.

Funding Notes

The projects are intended for self-funded PhD students and students who are eligible for the general scholarships offered by the University of Auckland; see

International students are also encouraged to explore funding opportunities in their home countries for studying abroad.
