Ecosystem/Socioecological Modeller * Develop and lead projects in the climate and natural resource management sectors * Play a key role in the development of research programs vital to Australia’s marine research * Join CSIRO’s Marine Ecosystem Modelling team CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research (CMAR) is currently seeking an Ecosystem / Socioecological Modeller to join the team, conducting research into ecosystem-based management of the coastal and offshore waters of Australia in relation to activities such as fishing, energy, tourism, environmental conservation, and urban and rural development. The approach is based on a scientific understanding of the functioning and dynamics of ecological systems and the interactions of multiple human activities within them. The work will include: collation and analysis of spatial and temporal data; modelling of ecological and socioecological processes; and development and implementation of complex marine ecosystem models. This position will provide the successful applicant with opportunities to play a key role in the development of a strong program of research within a multi-disciplinary group of about 30 scientists in this vital area of Australia's marine research. Specifically you will: * Improve and apply the Atlantis ecosystem model to understand and predict the responses of marine and coastal systems to natural and anthropogenic changes. * Evaluate the potential effectiveness of ecosystem based management strategies, such as spatial management, land-use zoning, effluent/pollutant controls, fisheries regulation and improved monitoring to provide robust advice to add natural resource management. * Interact with other researchers from CSIRO and from the broader research and resource management communities to identify research priorities and develop new project proposals. * Lead projects and participate in planning and management of project resources. Work with other project staff to deliver project objectives. * Contribute to the CMAR scientific leadership in the discipline of sustainability science and its applications. Salary: AUD$106k - $124k plus up to 15.4% superannuation Location: Hobart, Tasmania, Australia Term: Indefinite Reference Number: TAS14/01135 To be considered, you will have: * A PhD and substantial research experience in ecological modelling and formulating, implementing and applying models of aquatic ecosystems, including trophic and biophysical interactions in a spatially-explicit context. * Understanding of physical and biogeochemical processes in marine environments and/or social and behavioural drivers of human behaviour. * Experience in the initiation of original research work and development of innovative approaches to research problems. * Proven ability to liaise with the scientific community to draw together the information sources required for assembling ecosystem models. * Ability to work as part of a team in solving scientific problems, achieving joint goals, fulfilling funding agency milestones, writing proposals and reports, and attracting funding agency support. * Effective communication of research results and their general implications to a wide variety of audiences and a substantial record of research excellence. * Please note that we will consider candidates who do not meet all the selection criteria at a slightly lower level. You are still encouraged to apply if you have some of the selection criteria and are looking for a development opportunity.
