Forwarded from CLIMLIST... 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.
