Murdoch University in Perth, Western Australia is striving to make a
difference to the way we live, think and understand each other and the
world around us. Over the past two years Murdoch has undergone
significant restructure to boost the quality of research and teaching
and is today amongst one of the best universities in the world opened
less than fifty years ago.

The School of Veterinary and Life Sciences at Murdoch University has
core research and teaching strengths in Molecular and Biomedical
Sciences, Veterinary Science, Agricultural Sciences and Environmental
and Conservation Sciences.

We currently invite applications for a continuing (tenure-track)
position in atmospheric science as part of its long standing commitment
and leadership in the cluster of Environmental and Conservation
Sciences. The position will be filled at the Lecturer (level B) or
Senior Lecturer (level C) level depending on successful candidate’s
experience and track record. The ideal candidate will have a research
focus on the atmospheric boundary layer with particular interest in
land/atmosphere or sea/atmosphere interactions from either a modelling
or experimental perspective. Expertise linking meteorological
understanding to biological systems (e.g., biological oceanography,
climate change projects for marine and terrestrial systems) and
demonstrated ability to work in interdisciplinary teams with
environmental and biological scientists would be an advantage.

Applicants must have a PhD, and post-doctoral experience is preferred;
applicants for appointment at level C must also demonstrate an
established research program and track record of external funding and
publications that have international impact and influence. The
successful candidate will be an energetic scholar with strengths in
research and teaching who will contribute to the vibrant research
community within the school.

Applicants will also be expected to develop an active research
programme, apply for nationally competitive grants, publish in
international journals, and supervise graduate students. Ongoing
collaboration with industry is also part of this role. Expectations are
commensurate with level of appointment. Teaching responsibilities
include coordinating and teaching in a core second year unit
(Atmospheric Science) and a graduate unit (Earth System Science) as well
as contributing to other units in related areas at both undergraduate
and postgraduate levels.
