[Met-jobs] 3yrs postdoc in ENSO dynamics in Melbourne Australia

From Dietmar Dommenget <>
Date Fri, 02 Dec 2011 11:20:19 +1100

A 3yrs Postdoctoral Research Fellow on ENSO dynamics and modelling is available at the Monash University in Melbourne, Australia.

The successful applicant will undertake research in the dynamics and simulation of the El Nino Southern Oscillation using the Australian Community Climate and Earth System Simulator (ACCESS) model family and observations. A particular goal of the position is to development a hybrid coupled ENSO model for the understanding of the non-linear dynamics of the El Nino Southern Oscillation. The successful candidate will develop, design, execute and analyse suitable idealised model simulations as well as analyse observational data sets.

The position will be hosted by the Monash Weather and Climate Group in the School of Mathematical Sciences under the supervision of Dietmar Dommenget. Monash Weather and Climate is a multi-disciplinary research group formed jointly by the School of Mathematical Sciences and the School of Geography and Environmental Science. Monash Weather and Climate has recently received the highest rating of an “outstanding performance well above world standard” in the Australian Research Council's "Excellence in Research for Australia" (ERA) report, making us the leading university-based research group in Atmospheric Science in Australia. Further the Monash Weather and Climate Group is a node of the Australian Research Council’s Centre of Excellence (COE) for Climate System Science, which involves multiple Collaborative Organisations including several Australian universities, CSIRO, the Bureau of Meteorology, as well as several international research organisations.

The ENSO project will be partnered with Harry Hendon and Scott Power from Centre for Australian Weather and Climate Research (CAWCR) and Mojib Latif from the IFM-GEOMAR in Germany.
