Who we're looking for:
The UNSW-CSIRO iPhD program seeks Australian/New Zealand Citizens and Australian Permanent residents with the skills to become future applied research and innovation leaders and a strong motivation to work with and/or in industry. To be considered, applicants must hold a four-year Bachelor's degree with first-class Honours, or an equivalent qualification.
For this project, the ideal candidate will have a strong interest in biological systems, coupled with demonstrated experience in modelling, either from a mathematical, process-based, or statistical perspective. Experience using any of R, C++, Fortran, Julia, or Python is highly desirable. Knowledge of plant ecosystems, ecology, and the science of climate change is highly desirable. The outcomes of this research will be communicated to land-managers, industry partners, and policy makers. Candidates must therefore demonstrate excellent communication skills and the ability to produce publication-quality writing, both for academic journals and in the context of the carbon-farming industry and policy.
