Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Dear colleagues, Please forward the below information to other colleagues who may be interested in the postdoc position that hasopened in the CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere flagship. OCE Postdoctoral Fellowship in Climate Extremes and Australian Terrestrial Vegetation Work alongside leaders in your field Carry out innovative, impactful research of importance Exciting opportunity to kick-start your career in a leading scientific organisation 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. This OCE Postdoctoral Fellowship opportunity is within a small team that uses biospheric models and large datasets to understand material and energy exchanges of the Australian landscape and how these are affected by climate extremes. Climate variability, and associated water availability and heat extremes, is an important aspect of the climate system that affects society. New science is emerging on the very likely increase of climate extremes under a warmer Earth. Yet the response of vegetation to these changes is one of the largest uncertainties in projecting future climate, carbon sequestration and water resources. You will contribute to establishing process-based understanding of the responses of vegetation to changes in water availability and heat extremes by integrating modelling, flux and remote sensing data. Your duties will include: Use of high resolution hyperspectral and LIDAR remote-sensing data to detect temporal dynamics of phenology, growth, structure, and plant functional traits at a range of eddy-covariance sites around Australia. Use derived information to constrain vegetation structural dynamics within a biospheric model at the flux sites. This will require the implementation of observation models with the biospheric model. Use biospheric model simulations at the continental level to assess the effects of climate variability and extremes on vegetation dynamics. Contribute to the development of innovative concepts and ideas for further research. Undertake CSIRO’s postdoctoral training program. Location:Yarralumla, ACT Australia Salary: AUD$78k to $88k plus up to 15.4% superannuation Tenure: 3 year term Ref no: ACT15/01092 To be successful you will have: A doctorate (or will shortly satisfy the requirements of a PhD) in a relevant discipline area, such as earth system science, biology/ecology, environmental sciences, remote sensing, mathematics or physics. Demonstrated capability to conduct innovative research, with interest in plant physiology and function, and the carbon and water cycle. Strong numerical skills with experience in handling and analysing large datasets including flux data, remote sensing products and biopsheric model output. Experience in data assimilation and the development of observation models. The ability to work effectively as part of a multi-disciplinary, regionally dispersed research team. Owing to terms of the fellowship, candidates must not have more than 3 years of relevant Postdoctoral experience.
