OCE Postdoctoral Fellowship - Ecohydrological Remote Sensing

The Position:
CSIRO offers PhD graduates an opportunity to launch their scientific
careers through our Office of the Chief Executive (OCE) Postdoctoral
Fellowships. Successful applicants will work with leaders in the field
of science and receive personal development and learning opportunities.

CSIRO Land and Water Flagship is seeking to appoint a highly motivated
postdoctoral fellow to develop new methods for estimating how vegetation
alters carbon allocation and structure in response to changes in
resource availabilities, particularly CO2, and how these vegetation
changes impact the water balance. The fellow’s role will be to: (1)
develop a generalised optimality based carbon allocation model; (2)
using this model, combine satellite-based measures of above-ground
vegetation structure with meteorological and hydrological data to make
inferences about the dynamics in below-ground structure; and (3) to
build this allocation model into an ecohydrological framework and make
national-to-global scale predictions of long-term CO2-induced changes in
water and carbon fluxes.
Specifically you will:

Under the direction of senior research scientists, carry out innovative,
high-impact research of strategic importance to CSIRO that will, where
possible, lead to novel and important scientific outcomes.
Build parsimonious (or top-down) biophysical modelling frameworks and
assess/validate these frameworks by analysing long-term
national-to-global scale remote sensing, climate and hydrological datasets.
Undertake regular reviews of relevant literature.
Produce high quality scientific papers suitable for publication in high
quality journals.
