Postdoctoral Research Associate Physical Oceanography

University of New South Wales, Sydney Australia

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position in regional ocean 
modelling.  The role is to carry out high level research in support of a 
project funded by the Australian Research Council “Advancing Dynamical 
Understanding in the East Australian Current: Optimising the Ocean Observing 
and Prediction Effort”. The objective of this research is to provide new 
insight into the complex dynamics of the East Australian Current through data 
assimilative numerical modelling.  We will assess the value of new oceanic 
observations mainly acquired through the Australian IMOS program in improving 
state-estimation and thus prediction, along Australia’s highly populated east 

It is expected that the successful applicant will undertake original research, 
leading to publications in leading international journals, on this and 
associated topics.

Essential requirements for the position:  a PhD in Physical Oceanography or a 
related discipline.  Experience with regional ocean modelling (preferably ROMS) 
is essential, and proficiency with visualisation tools such as Matlab is also 
desirable.  A demonstrated ability to undertake independent research; excellent 
computing and communication skills and the ability to work both independently 
and as a member of a research team.

This is a fixed term position for 18 months with the possibility of extension 
dependent on funding. We seek a mid year start date – or sooner.

Applicant may be required to undergo pre-employment checks prior to appointment 
to this role.

Applicants should systematically address the selection criteria in their 
application. Women and people from equity groups are encouraged to apply.
