This project will combine field measurements and modelling to quantify greenhouse gas emissions from water reservoirs on the East Coast of NSW. The project will help develop a management toolkit for water management authorities to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and achieve Net Zero Emissions. The candidate will work closely with industry partner WaterNSW and develop skills across a range of cutting-edge measurement and modelling techniques.
Location: The project will be based at the Northern Rivers campus of Southern Cross University, situated on the North Coast of NSW. The candidate will work within the vibrant and collaborative Catchments, Coasts and Communities research cluster and have access to state-of-the-art facilities and infrastructure. The candidate will ideally have experience in greenhouse gas measurements, water quality and/or hydrodynamic modelling, statistical analysis and GIS.
Eligibility: The successful candidate will receive a PhD stipend at the RTP rate of AU$29,863 per annum (2023 rate indexed annually) for three years and three months and will need to meet the entry requirements to enrol in a PhD at Southern Cross University on a full-time basis, including a bachelor’s degree (Hons, 2nd class or above) or a master’s degree with a relevant research component.
