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 CSIRO. 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 journals. * 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 resulted. * 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.
