PhD Scholarship in Solar Radiation and Energy (Canberra, Australia)

An excellent PhD opportunity is available for a joint project with the Weather and Energy Research Unit at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) and the Fenner School of Environment and Society at the Australian National University in the area of Solar Radiation and Energy.

The appointed PhD student will develop a solar radiation and energy forecasting system aimed at improving the way in which solar energy produced by a selection of energy devices is integrated into the electricity grid. Such a system may eventually be implemented operationally by bodies such as the Australian Energy Market Operator and/or solar power farms operators.

Candidates who have achieved Honours 1 or 2a or equivalent in Science and/or Engineering from a recognised University and have an enthusiastic interest in Solar Energy and/or Meteorology are encouraged to apply. Applicants should submit a brief statement of practical and academic suitability for the proposed research topic, a current curriculum vitae, academic transcripts and contact details for two referees.

Scholarship applications close 30th November 2010, but the search may remain open until the position is filled. The selected PhD student will be awarded a research support budget of up to AUD 24,000 per annum.
