  • 3-year full-time PhD Scholarship (tax-free AU$27,353 per annum)
  • in the Department of Civil Engineering to start in the 1st semester of 2018

Background – The overall aim of this project is to identify, quantify, and model key processes driving streamflow generation in intermittent catchments with different rainfall regimes, topography, geology, and two contrasting land uses (i.e., pasture and plantation).

Four intermittent catchments in south-western Victoria, Australia, will be used as a case study to identify how these catchments store and release water. Particular focus will be directed to understanding and model i) the roles of groundwater and surface runoff in supplying the streams when they flow and ii) how rainfall is partitioned between tree water use, groundwater recharge, and streamflow.

Application – Applications should be sent to Dr Edoardo Daly ( by February 23rd, 2018 and should include:

  • Cover letter, specifying interests, qualifications, and experience in relation to the project.
  • Up-to-date curriculum vitae, specifying the final scores of undergraduate and master degrees (e.g., GPA), employment history, details of journal publications, and the names of two academic referees.
  • Certified copy of academic transcript.
  • Evidence of meeting the eligibility criteria for PhD candidature  at Monash University, as explained at
