ARC Super Science Fellowship – Physical Oceanography, Institute for
Marine and Antarctic Studies, University of Tasmania, Hobart, Australia

Applications are invited for appointment to this position, which will be
offered on a fixed term full-time basis for a period of 3 years.

The appointee to the physical oceanography Fellowship will use a
combination of ocean observations (remotely sensed and in situ),
climatology data, reanalysis data, and state-of-the-art high resolution
climate model outputs, to estimate spatial patterns of physical
variables (temperature and nutrients) and their variability (means,
seasonal and year-to-year variances and extremes) across the East
Australian Current and over the continental shelf during the past two
decades. The appointee will also estimate future changes in these
physical variables for the same regions based on downscaled climate
change projections from a state-of-the-art dynamical ocean model
simulation. It is anticipated that the Fellow will develop a component
of the project suitable for PhD studies, and take primary responsibility
for supervising that element of the work.

The position is an academic staff appointment in the new Institute for
Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS) at the University of Tasmania. IMAS
aspires to become the leading global institution for temperate marine,
Southern Ocean, and Antarctic studies, and offers a dynamic and
collaborative work environment. Hobart’s marine and Antarctic research
community numbers ca 1000 staff at the University of Tasmania, the
Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation Marine and
Atmospheric Research, and the Australian Antarctic Division. The
University provides excellent employment benefits and a pleasant working
environment, while Hobart offers an unparalleled lifestyle with a
vibrant culture and unique natural environment.

The appointment will be at Academic Level A and will have a total
remuneration package of up to $83,242 per annum (comprising salary
within the range $53,256 - $71,147 plus 17% superannuation, with the
option of an additional 3% salary loading in exchange for 14% instead of
17% superannuation).

Craig Johnson <>.
