We seek a highly motivated and qualified researcher to join a research group at 
The University of Melbourne
 as part of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science. The 
specific position involves research on
likelihoods, mechanisms, and attribution of changes in Australian climate 
extremes as part of the Extremes
Research Program in the Centre.

This research will use high quality observational data to understand the 
variability and changes in weather and
climatic extremes. It will also use multi-model archives and climate model 
simulations with specified forcings to
assess the relative importance of natural and anthropogenic factors on 
influencing longer-term changes in extremes
and the changing likelihoods of extreme climate events.

The appointee will work under the direct supervision of Professor David Karoly, 
but will also work closely with
Dr Lisa Alexander (UNSW), our partner investigators, and other members of this 
research program.

Salary: Level A: $62,973 - $85,452 p.a. (PhD entry level: $79,609 p.a.) plus
