Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Vacancy Programming Support Scientist - Climate Projection Science at CSIRO CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research are seeking to appoint a motivated and experienced project support scientist to provide programming support for the development of climate change projections and the assessment of climate change impacts, risks, and vulnerabilities. The position is part of the Climate Variability and Change Program within the Centre for Australian Weather and Climate Research (CAWCR) - a partnership between CSIRO and the Bureau of Meteorology. The program is a national research capability for seasonal prediction, climate prediction and climate change science, and the application of climate change projections to impacts, risks and vulnerabilities assessments. Specifically you will: Develop programming tools to apply established techniques for generating regional climate projections. This will primarily involve analysis of very large datasets comprised of observed climate data, the outputs from global climate model simulations and regional downscaling simulations, and other environmental data sets. Apply and/or develop programming tools for conducting climate change impacts and risks assessments. This will primarily involve application of established models such as the rainfall-runoff model. Collaborate on research projects in climate projection science. Collaborate with scientist in other disciplines as part of projects focusing on impacts and risks assessment and projects focusing on climate change adaptations.
