Air pollution events associated with bushfires have been associated with extreme health impacts, including increased hospital admissions and death.  Hazard reduction burns are vital to reduce the severity of bushfires. However, if undertaken during unfavourable meteorological conditions, they too have the capacity to trigger extreme air pollution events. 

This position will work in collaboration with the supervisor and collaborators from the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) and Rural Fire Service (RFS) to produce a tool for forecasting air pollution impacts caused by hazard reduction burns over the Greater Sydney region.

About you

To be successful in this role you will hold a PhD and a research track record in a discipline such as atmospheric science, climate science, statistics or remote sensing; have experience in managing research projects and have exceptional communication skills.
