Postdoctoral Research Fellows (2)

Monash University, Melbourne, Australia

Applications are invited for 2 two-year fixed term postdoctoral Research Fellows to study cloud systems originating over the Southern Ocean and their impact on the wintertime precipitation across southeast Australia and Tasmania. Such systems have been observed by satellites (CALIOP, MODIS) to commonly be composed of supercooled liquid water. Limited in-situ observations have identified high supercooled liquid water events in the alpine regions. The first position will develop a climatology of the microphysics of these events from an array of remote and in-situ observations. The second position will employ these observations to evaluate and develop the microphysics in the Australian Community Climate and Earth System Simulator (ACCESS). Both positions will work as part of a team involving scientists at Monash University, the Centre for Australian Weather and Climate Research (CAWCR), Snowy Hydro and Hydro Tasmania.  The successful applicant should be an active researcher with a PhD (or equivalent) in atmospheric science or a related discipline.
