Research Fellow Savanna ecosystem and land surface modelling

We seek a postdoctoral research fellow to work in the area of Savanna
ecosystem and land surface modelling. The candidate will be engaged in
dynamic and multidisciplinary team to work on an ARC funded program on
“Australian Savanna Landscapes: Past, Present and future”. The appointee
will assess how Australian savanna systems function (carbon and water
cycles) in the present, how sensitive they have been to past climate
variability and how they may respond to future change. This will involve
identifying gaps in models used to project climate in savanna biomes and
improve them to ultimately dynamically generate current, past and future
savanna vegetation patterns and responses. A Ph.D. in climate science or
ecosystem process or related discipline is necessary. Demonstrated
research track record is required in ecosystem and land surface
modelling. Experience in landscape modelling and model intercomparisons
would be an advantage.

The position may be taken up at Monash University (Melbourne),
University of Technology Sydney (Sydney) or Charles Darwin University
(Darwin) Australia depending on the best match to skills and
supervisors. More information at
