CSIRO offers PhD graduates an opportunity to launch their scientific
careers through our Office of the Chief Executive (OCE) Postdoctoral
Fellowships. Successful applicants will work with leaders in the field
of science and receive personal development and learning opportunities.

Applications are invited for a 3-yr OCE PDF with CSIRO Marine and
Atmospheric Research in estimating Australian emissions of synthetic
greenhouse gases (SGGs). SGGs are Australia's fastest growing (~10%/yr)
greenhouse gas (GHG) emission sector and currently make up about 15% of
Australia's GHG forcing that contributes to global long-term climate
change. The project will enable Australia to demonstrate the viability
and efficacy of atmospheric verification as applied to national SGG

You will lead the team that installs and operates a new SGG monitoring
facility at Lucas Heights, NSW (near Sydney), creating an Australian
network for SGG observations, based on similar, existing SGG facilities
at Aspendale, Victoria (near Melbourne) and Cape Grim, Tasmania. The
network will monitor SGG emissions from New South Wales, Victoria,
Australian Capital Territory, Tasmania and South Australia (responsible
for 70-75% of Australian SGG emissions).

You will be exposed to leading-edge technologies in the measurement and
emissions modelling of SGGs and, as such, should finish this appointment
in an outstanding position to pursue a research career in this field, or
related fields, either in Australia or overseas.

Specifically you will be responsible for:
* The establishment and operation of a state-of-the-art SGG monitoring
facility at Lucas Heights.
* The coordinated operation of the Australian SGG monitoring network at
Lucas Heights, Aspendale and Cape Grim.
* Assisting the development of state-of-the-art inverse atmospheric
modelling capability in CSIRO.
* Produce high quality scientific and technical outputs including
journal articles, conference papers and presentations, patents and
technical reports.
* Develop innovative concepts and ideas for further research.

Location: Aspendale, Victoria Australia
Salary: $81K to $88K plus up to 15.4% Superannuation effective from 4/7/2013
Ref No: VIC13/01598
Tenure: 3 years

To be successful you will have:
* A PhD in Atmospheric chemistry or related fields.
* Demonstrated ability to conduct innovative research in
state-of-the-art atmospheric measurements (preferably by gas
chromatography-mass spectrometry), and atmospheric modelling (preferably
inverse modelling) of GHG emissions.
* Demonstrated skills in the acquisition and processing of large data sets.
* Demonstrated ability to develop experimental plans which incorporate
originality, creativity and innovation in solving problems, and which
may introduce new directions and approaches.
* Demonstrated experience in working constructively with
interdisciplinary teams.
