Forwarded from CLIMLIST...

The details relating to this opportunity follow:

* Are you a recent (or near) PhD graduate with a strong understanding of
the oceans role in climate change and other relevant climate change
physical processes?
* Kick-start your career in a professional and supportive leading
scientific agency
* Join Australia's premier science & technology research organisation!

The Position:
CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation) in
Australia offers PhD graduates an opportunity to launch their scientific
careers through
our Office of the Chief Executive (OCE) Postdoctoral Fellowships.

CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere Flagship is seeking to appoint a highly
motivated individual to work with leaders in the field of science and
receive personal development and learning opportunities. You will work
on research aimed at using  observations of ocean change and coupled
climate model simulations define and detect the effects on the oceans of
different external climate forcings in the presence of natural internal

* Under the supervision of senior research scientists, carry out
innovative, impactful research of strategic importance to CSIRO.
* Use ensembles of coupled model output and/or specific model runs to
explore and understand the physics and drivers of observed multidecadal
ocean change.
* Explore, adapt or expand detection and attribution formalisms to help
quantify drivers of change and to better constrain projections of future
ocean change and warming rates.
* Produce high quality scientific papers suitable for publication in
peer-reviewed journals
and present your work at scientific conferences.

Location: Hobart, Tasmania, Australia
Salary: AU$78K to AU$88K plus up to 15.4% superannuation (pension fund)
Tenure: 3 years
Reference: TAS15/01144

To be successful in this position you will have:
* A doctorate (or will shortly satisfy the requirements of a PhD) in a
relevant discipline area, such as physical oceanography or climate
science, with a strong background and substantial experience in the
analysis of global ocean observations and/or model results.
* Demonstrated understanding of the oceans role in climate change and
other relevant climate change physical processes.
* Demonstrated experience with computational and statistical methods of
climate science and oceanography, in particular the ability to
synthesize diverse data sets to aid interpretation and draw conclusions.
* Sophisticated programming skills to analyse large model data sets and
compare them rigorously to observations.

Owing to terms of the fellowship, candidates must not have more than 3
years of relevant full time postdoctoral experience.

Who we are: Australia's Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research
Organisation (CSIRO) is oe of the largest and most diverse scientific
organisations in the world.
