We seek a highly motivated and qualified researcher or numerical modeling support scientist to join a new research group at The University of Melbourne as part of the Greenhouse Gas Monitor (GGM) project funded under the Australian Space Research Program. 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 Melbourne University team, led by Prof. Peter Rayner, will develop the algorithms to use such data and plan optimal deployment. The successful applicant will join a growing modeling team so there is some flexibility in their role. The position is suitable either for an early career researcher wishing to develop a research profile or for a modeling support engineer. The roles and responsibilities would be different in these two cases with the ECR taking responsibility for publication and contributing more to the scientific direction of the project. The successful applicant will: 1) Link the atmospheric model of the Australian Community Climate and Earth System Simulator (ACCESS) to the transport model TM5 for use in an existing inversion system. 2) Perform inversions with current satellite and in-situ data to provide a performance baseline. 3) Apply algorithms to validate and, if necessary, calibrate satellite CO2 measurements using existing ground-based column measurements and participate in the development of algorithms for planning optimal networks of GGM instruments for source-sink determination and calibration/validation. 4) An ECR would be expected to take primary responsibility for the tasks (under supervision) while a modeling support engineer would be expected to build and maintain the underlying modeling systems but would not be expected to lead the analysis and publication of results. The role is, however, flexible. The position is available immediately. Salary is in the range $a57k--$a97k 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 0028775. the closing date for applications is March 31. 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
