The Position An exciting opportunity exists for a suitably qualified person with strong computing skills to work on problems affecting the Australia-Pacific region. Initially, the work will focus on dynamical downscaling of the climate system to provide projected changes in the characteristics of tropical cyclone events for the Pacific-Australia Climate Change Science and Adaptation Program (PACCSAP). The successful applicant will support the development and use of high resolution atmospheric models (RAMS and WRF initially) to downscale reanalysis data for benchmarking purposes prior to downscaling control and changed climate simulations. The position will support technical modifications to the model codes and the development of a common, user-friendly analysis platform for the outputs from these and other models. 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.
