Research Scientist ? Atmospheric Greenhouse Gases

Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) Marine and 
Atmospheric Research
Great opportunity to work in a leading scientific institution with dedicated 
professionals 
Offering outstanding career development and professional support 
Come, join CSIRO - Australia's premier science & technology research 
organisation  
The Position:
Applications are invited for a Research Scientist in atmospheric greenhouse gas 
(GHG) analysis and modelling. We are seeking a candidate with strong 
experimental and modelling experience and a particular interest in the sources 
and sinks of GHGs. 
This is an opportunity for you to take part in ground-breaking research 
defining the Australian sources and sinks of important GHGs, based on 
interpretation of atmospheric observations via state-of-the-art atmospheric 
models. You will be part of an expansion in CSIRO's capability to quantify 
Australian GHG sources and sinks.
Location: Aspendale, Victoria Australia
Salary: $83k - $90k pa + up to 15.4% superannuation
Tenure: Indefinite/Ongoing
Reference Number: 2010/759
Specifically you will:
Contribute to two major research programs:
Australian sources and sinks for GHGs, and Carbon capture & storage as a GHG 
emission mitigation strategy for Australia. 
Develop innovative concepts, tools and techniques for the analysis of GHGs in 
the Australian environment 
Interpret Australian GHG data via atmospheric models, deriving regional sources 
and sinks 

To be successful you will have:
A PhD degree in atmospheric chemistry or closely related topic 
Demonstrated conceptual and practical knowledge and skills in GHG measurement 
and modeling and their application to
(i) deriving GHG sources and sinks and
(ii) testing carbon capture and storage as an emissions mitigation strategy. 
Practical experience in measurement of GHGs and calibration strategies, using 
state-of-the-art spectroscopic techniques in central laboratories and at remote 
field sites. 
Experience with regional transport models to interpret atmospheric GHG data, 
particularly derivation of regional sources and sink properties 

The position will be based at Aspendale, Victoria, as part of the Centre for 
Australian Weather and Climate Research (CAWCR) ? a partnership between CSIRO 
and the Bureau of Meteorology. Find out more information about the Centre for 
Australian Weather and Climate Research at the CAWCR website at:

Who we are:
The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation is Australia's 
national science agency and one of the largest and most diverse research 
agencies in the world. To find out more about CSIRO please visit
