Regional Climate Modelling Technical Support
Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation


*       Exciting opportunity to apply your technical computing skills
*       Make a real impact - working towards improving Australia's climate and
environment!
*       Come, join Australia's premier science & technology research 
organisation

CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research are seeking to appoint a motivated
and experienced technical support scientist who will provide programming
support for the development and evaluation of an ACCESS limited area
climate model.

This position is part of the Centre for Australian Weather and Climate
Research (CAWCR), a partnership between CSIRO and the Bureau of
Meteorology, which is leading the development of an Earth systems model
known as the Australian Community Earth System Simulator (ACCESS) for
application across a range of time scales from numerical weather
prediction to climate change projection. ACCESS is developing capability
for simulation of both the global coupled climate system and the climate
on the regional scale at finer spatial resolution, with the latter
supporting climate change projection suitable for use in climate impacts
and adaptation applications. The modelling capability is being developed
in collaboration with the UK Met Office Hadley Centre. .

Specifically you will:
- Solve technical computing problems associated with the ACCESS regional
climate model and associated software, including nudging/boundary
schemes and underpinning ancillary data files
- Develop and maintain a strong working knowledge of the ACCESS
atmospheric model code and options as applied to regional climate simulation
- Consult with external modelling groups in order to gain expertise in,
and solve technical problems with the ACCESS regional climate model.


Location:       Aspendale, VIC
Salary:         $73K to $82K plus up to 15.4% Superannuation
Ref No:         IA11/00100

To be successful you will have:
- A B.Sc. (Hons) with a major in computing, engineering or physical
sciences;
- Well developed skills in FORTRAN 90 programming;
- Demonstrated experience with UNIX/Linux systems;
- Demonstrated experience working with climate or atmospheric models or
model datasets; and
- Excellent written and verbal communication skills including the
ability to document results and communicate effectively with colleagues
and clients in order to meet project goals and timelines.

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
