2018/19 Australian Climate and Water Summer Institute

Quick! Applications for competitive fellowship grants to participate in the TERN-supported 2018 Australian Climate and Water Summer Institute are closing soon.

This prestigious six-week event offers around 18 of the most talented students and early career researchers in Australia and New Zealand a unique opportunity to work closely with peers and experts from academia and government agencies to enhance climate and water information and its practical applications.

The Australian Climate and Water Summer Institute will take place in Canberra in two parts, from 3-21 December 2018 and from 7-25 January 2019. The event starts with a two-week ecological training boot camp, during which fellows will obtain a deeper understanding of the role and workings of several different government agencies and receive intensive training and mentoring to help them undertake their project. They will also attend the OzEWEX annual workshop. During the following four-week project period, fellows will collaborate intensively to develop an application or improvement to data services and analysis tools from the Summer Institute partners.

The Summer Institute will focus on five broad themes (Forecasts, Droughts, Floods, Water Sharing, Data Integration) led by expert project leads from the Institute’s partner organisations and within academia. Depending on their chosen project topic, fellows will be embedded with one of the partner organisations. At the final Climate and Water Symposium, each team will present their results. Following the Summer Institute, teams will be assisted in further developing their project outcomes into a peer-reviewed publication.

Applications close Saturday, 1 September 2018.
