PhD top-ups in Climate and Fluid Physics

PhDs in Ocean Dynamics at ANU

Multiple PhD opportunities are available for physics and maths graduates to join the Climate and Fluid Physics group at the Australian National University in 2021.

Example projects with top-up scholarships available include:

Other projects in line with the group’s broad research interests are also possible (from large-scale ocean circulation to internal waves, turbulence and ocean model development). 

We seek expressions of interest from domestic and international graduates with a strong background in physics, mathematics, engineering, dynamical oceanography or similar quantitative sciences. Top-up scholarships of $7000/year for 3.5 years are available for outstanding applicants, and we will guide you through the application process for the primary Research Training Program (RTP) scholarship.

Email Adele Morrison (, Andy Hogg ( and/or Callum Shakespeare ( with questions or expressions of interest (including a CV, academic transcript and contact details for academic referees). Applications will be assessed on an ongoing basis.
