The appointee will have technical skills to deliver innovative science by using state-of-the-art methods (e.g. numerical modelling, statistical tools, laboratory and/or field experimentation) complementing current research strengths focusing on the bi-directional nature of hydrological and ecological process responses to disturbances and extreme events (e.g. droughts, floods, water temperature, wildfire, habitat fragmentation) and impacts of climate/ weather variability (e.g. urban heat, storms and extremes, freeze events on road/ railways). Evidence of a strong track record in publishing research of high academic quality and impact, preferably at international level, and securing external research funding is important for a more senior appointment.
