Reconstructing and understanding the evolution of the Southern Annular Mode over the past 2,000 years

Closing Date

Applicants should contact the primary supervisor, and submit their Expression of Interest (EOI) and Application as soon as possible.

*unless filled earlier

The Research Project

This project will use data from ice cores, tree rings and marine sediments to reconstruct changes in the Southern Annular Mode over the past 2,000 years. Climate modelling will be used to understand the drivers of long-term variability and change, improving our ability to generate future climate projections.

Eligibility
  • Strong numerical analysis skills (R, Python, Fortran or similar), strong written and oral communication skills
  • Understanding of palaeoclimatology and palaeoclimate reconstruction, particularly using data from ice cores, tree rings and marine sediments. Experience working with the output of numerical climate models
