We seek a highly motivated and qualified researcher to join a new research group as part of the Greenhouse Gas Monitor (GGM) project funded under the Australian Space Research Programme. GGM will develop a cost-effective ground-based instrument for measuring column-integrated CO2 concentrations for use in satellite validation, numerical weather prediction and estimation of CO2 sources and sinks. The successful candidate will be employed by the University of Melbourne in a team led by Prof. Peter Rayner. The candidate will be based at the Bureau of Meteorology's and CSIRO's Centre for Australian Weather and Climate Research and be co-supervised by Prof. John LeMarshall. The project is to analyze atmospheric CO2 using the Australian Community Climate and Earth System Simulator (ACCESS) Atmospheric Model used operationally within BOM. This is expected to lead to improved analysis of temperature and water vapour as measured by satellite and hence to improved forecasting. The successful applicant will: 1) Implement improved climatologies of CO2 in the ACCESS model (generated, for example, by the Monitoring of Atmospheric Composition and Climate project) and assess their impact on analysis and forecast. 2) Aid in the coupling of the transport model TM5 with the ACCESS model to allow operational inclusion of near real-time CO2 measurements 3) Implement bias correction schemes for current and future satellite CO2 products based on column integrated measurements from the GGM instrument and its precursors. Salary is in the range $a56k--$a77k depending on the experience of the candidate. the duration is 2 years. More information and the application can be found at http://jobs.unimelb.edu.au/jobSearch.asp?stp=AW by searching for the position number 0028277. the closing date for applications is Feb 13. for more information contact Peter Rayner (email@example.com) but please do not submit applications directly to that address since they may not be properly recorded. regards Peter Rayner -- Peter Rayner room 343 School of Earth Sciences, University of Melbourne, 3010, Vic, Australia tel: work: +61 (0)3 8344 9708; fax: +61 (0)3 8344 7761 mobile +61 402 752 379, skype: petermorag mail-to: firstname.lastname@example.org and CLIMMOD ENGINEERING http://www.climmod.com mail-to: Peter.Rayner@climmod.com
