OCE Postdoctoral Fellow: Tropical Variability under global warming

  *   An exciting Postdoctoral Fellowship until 30 June 2016
  *   Work on the processes governing tropical variability, their simulation in 
climate models and their response, and the response of their teleconnection to 
greenhouse warming
  *   Join CSIRO, Australia’s leading scientific research organisation!
CSIRO’s Office of the Chief Executive (OCE) Science Leader Postdoctoral 
Fellowships provide opportunities to scientists and engineers to launch their 
careers, gain experience that will enhance career prospects and facilitate for 
CSIRO the development of potential leaders. These positions will carry out 
innovative research of strategic importance to CSIRO that will produce novel 
and important scientific outcomes in collaboration with others. In this role 
you will work on the processes governing tropical variability, their simulation 
in climate models, and their response, and the response of their 
teleconnection, to greenhouse warming.

In this role, you will:

  *   Under guidance of the supervisors, lead the effort that addresses how the 
annual cycle and long-term mean state of the equatorial Pacific and Indian 
Ocean will change under global warming.
  *   Use outputs from about 40 climate models participating in the 
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to examine if there is systematic 
relationship between mean state changes in the equatorial Pacific/Indian Ocean 
and changes in the properties of El Niño/Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD) events.
  *   Carry out innovative, impactful research of strategic importance that 
will where possible lead to novel and important scientific outcomes. Contribute 
to the development of innovative concepts and ideas for further research.
  *   Prepare appropriate conference papers and present those at conferences as 
agreed with your supervisor.
  *   Produce high quality scientific papers suitable for publication in 
quality journals, for client reports and granting of patents; and undertake 
regular reviews of relevant literature and patents.
  *   Undertake an appropriate training and development program developed by 
Location: Aspendale, Melbourne, Victoria
Salary: $78,000 - $88,000 plus up to 15.4% superannuation
Reference: VIC14/02976
Term: Contract until 30 June 2016

To be successful, you will have:

  *   A doctorate (or will shortly satisfy the requirements of a PhD) in a 
relevant discipline area, such as climate sciences, mathematics, Meteorology 
and Oceanography. To be eligible, by 30 June 2016 you must have no more than 6 
years of relevant postdoctoral experience.
  *   High level written and oral communication skills with the ability to 
represent the research team effectively, including at national and 
international conferences. A record of publications in quality, peer reviewed 
  *   Ability to work as part of a multi-disciplinary research team, plus the 
motivation and discipline to carry out autonomous research.
  *   Well-developed knowledge of ENSO or the IOD dynamics and their respective 
feedback processes.
  *   Strong ability in writing computer programs and in data analysis 
method/approach and techniques.
  *   A history of professional and respectful behaviours and attitudes in a 
collaborative environment, where successful partnerships and/or outcomes have 
  *   A record of science innovation, applying creativity and originality to 
problem solving, plus the ability & willingness to incorporate novel ideas and 
approaches into scientific investigations.
  *   Experience in sophisticated statistical methods, attention to detail and 
accuracy in work are highly desirable.
Note: This role will remain open until filled.
