[Met-jobs] Regional climate modelling Postdoctoral position at UNSW Sydney, Australia

From Jason Evans <>
Date Fri, 03 Aug 2012 13:05:14 +1000

Postdoctoral Research Associate

Faculty of Science
Climate Change Research Centre
REF. 8919NET

Salary Level A: A$77K - A$82K or Salary Level B: A$86K - A$102K pa (plus 17% superannuation plus leave loading).
The Climate Change Research Centre seeks a suitably qualified research associate to provide research support to the project LP120200777 "Will East coast lows change in frequency or intensity in the future?" This is a linkage project funded by the Australian Research Council and NSW Office of Environment and Heritage, and is led by Dr Jason Evans along with Dr Lisa Alexander and Prof. Steven Sherwood.
UNSW Climate Change Research Centre (CCRC) is a multi-disciplinary research group comprising the largest university research facilities of its kind in Australia. CCRC houses research expertise in the three key areas of climate science: atmosphere processes, ocean processes and terrestrial processes. To these, we apply our strengths in climate dynamics, global climate change and extremes of weather and climate.
The successful applicant will hold a PhD or equivalent qualification in a relevant field, a research track record in one or more of the following areas: atmospheric modelling, coupled climate modelling, regional climate modelling (in particular WRF), climate variability/change. However, an individual with a PhD in quantitative applied mathematics or physics would likely be very competitive without explicit experience in regional climate modelling. Applicants should also be able to demonstrate programming skills in a Unix/Linux environment (e.g. Fortran 9X, shell scripts, NCL, R, Matlab) as well as possessing excellent written and oral communication skills.
This is a full time fixed term position for two years, with possibility of renewal for up to a further 12 months. This appointment will be made at either level A or level B depending on the successful candidate's experience and research track record.
Applicants should address the selection criteria found within the position description, in their online application.
