Joint PhD with University of Hamburg: The role of wave-cloud coupling in shaping patterns of clouds

Project Description

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.

If successful, the PhD candidate will be enrolled at both the University of Melbourne and Universität Hamburg, and will work in close cooperation with the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology, Hamburg. The candidate will be co-supervised by supervisors at both institutions and will spend at least twelve months at the University of Melbourne and the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology.

Applicants must have a strong quantitative background in meteorology, mathematics, physics, or a related field.

The application process is competitive, with higher than the equivalent of a University of Melbourne 80% in a relevant degree expected.
