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 three-year OCE Postdoctoral Fellowship at
CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research in quantifying the uncertainties
of carbon-climate feedback in an earth system. The successful candidates
will work closely with members of the CSIRO team and Professor Peter
Rayner of the University of Melbourne to address that question. Apply a
global sensitivity analysis to identify key parameters and quantify
their uncertainties using different field observations and independent
global data, and work with other members of the team to propagate those
uncertainties using ACCESS.

This post-doctoral fellow is expected to publish in high-impact
international journals, interact with some international groups and
attend at least two international workshops. The successful candidate
will participate in vibrant interdisciplinary research teams and will be
encouraged to get involved in other ongoing projects within the teams,
such as model evaluation and development.

Specifically you will:

*Apply a global sensitivity analysis technique to identify key
parameters in CABLE to land carbon uptake
*Quantify the uncertainties of those key parameters in CABLE using
advanced model-data fusion techniques
*In collaboration with other colleagues, estimate the uncertainties of
simulated carbon-climate feedback by ACCESS
*Contribute to the effective functioning of the research team and help
deliver upon CSIRO's organizational objectives

Location: Aspendale, Victoria
Salary: $81K to $88K plus up to 15.4% Superannuation effective from 4/7/2013
Ref No: VIC13/01595
Tenure: 3 years

To be successful you will have:

*A PhD in land surface modeling or earth system sciences or related fields.
*Demonstrated experience in land-surface modelling, earth-system science.
*Strong programming skills, preferably with Fortran 90 or 95 in a
Unix/Linux environment.
*Demonstrated originality, creativity and innovation in solving problems.
*Ability to work with a broad range of people from varying research
backgrounds and evidence of strong oral and written communication
skills, including the ability to publish the results of scientific
research in scientific journals.
Owing to terms of the fellowship, candidates must not have more than 3
years of relevant Postdoctoral experience.

Who we are: The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research
Organisation (CSIRO) is one of the largest and most diverse scientific
organisations in the world. By igniting the creative spirit of our
people, we deliver great science and innovative solutions that benefit
industry, society and the environment.
