The Research Project

This project aims to examine the sensitivity of a globally significant ocean heat uptake hotspot in the mid-latitude Southern Hemisphere Oceans to various driving factors, using the sophisticated adjoint modelling technique.

  • Research must be undertaken on a full-time basis.
  • Bachelor of Science with Honours (first class or equivalent).
  • Background research in physical oceanography or climate science;
  • Experience with coding in MATLAB or python;
  • Experience handling climate data in a Linux environment;
  • Demonstrably strong quantitative skills (mathematics and physics background)

Candidates from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

Selection Criteria:

Applicants will be assessed and ranked according to the quality of their basis for entry research degree and institution, prior peer reviewed publications, academic awards, project-specific skills, training or relevant industry experience, referee's reports and supervisory support.

Application Process

Applicants who require more information or are interested in this specific project should first contact the listed Supervisor. Information and guidance on the application process can be found on the Apply Now website.
