Postdoc on URBAN CLIMATE CHANGE at Melbourne University and Monash
University, Australia

The Postdoctoral Research Fellow will join the research groups on
climate variability and change at The University of Melbourne (led by
Professor Ian Simmonds) and at Monash University (led by Professor Nigel
Tapper) under three-year funding from the Australian Research Council.
The appointee will assist with identifying and quantifying the human
impacts on climate and climate change by exploring day-of-the-week
variability (DOWV) in meteorological parameters across the Australian
continent. A broad range of statistical approaches will be undertaken to
identify robust DOWV signals in data sets (including station data,
satellite data atmospheric aerosol data, and ‘reanalysis’ products). The
project will also involve the application and development of a suite of
sophisticated physical-dynamical models to quantify the role played by
various forcing processes, such as waste heat deposition and atmospheric
aerosols, in inducing identified intraweek weather variations. The
successful applicant will collaborate with researchers from the
Australian Bureau of Meteorology, CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research
and the Australian Universities’ Climate Consortium, as well as
international research groups.

This is a three-year full time position
