Ecosystem/Socioecological Modeller

  *   Develop and lead projects in the climate and natural resource management 
  *   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 
  *   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
