The Position

The CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere is seeking to fill a Senior Climate Scientist 
role with two high-level purposes: provide outstanding climate science 
expertise and leadership to the Climate Science Centre (CSC) and lead the 
NESP-funded Earth Systems and Climate Change (ESCC) Hub - at least to the end

As Earth Systems and Climate Change Hub Leader, you will be required to provide 
scientific leadership for the Earth Systems and Climate Change (ESCC) Hub.  You 
will develop and deliver a research portfolio that addresses the research 
priorities of the Department, the Hub partners and key stakeholders. You will 
ensure that the Hub engages with the broader Earth system and climate change 
stakeholder community, and the NESP research community more generally, to 
ensure the Hub’s research addresses their climate change challenges and that 
the research outputs are communicated effectively and expected outcomes and 
impacts are realised.

As a Senior Climate Scientist within the CSIRO Climate Science Centre (CSC), 
you will be required to identify opportunities for the Climate Science Centre 
to realise value and impact from its world-leading climate, oceans and 
atmospheric science capability. You will work with other leaders in the Centre 
to implement the CSC Strategy, advancing knowledge of climate variability, 
change and impacts in the Australasian region and building a strong external 
revenue pipeline. The Senior Climate Change Scientist will also play a lead 
role in ensuring the CSC continues to invest in high quality and relevant 
climate system research outputs, impacts and capability

·       A doctorate and or equivalent research experience in a relevant Earth 
System Science discipline area, such as climate, atmospheric or ocean sciences.

·       An outstanding record of quality publications as a leading or 
contributing author in high impact, peer-reviewed journals.

·       An international reputation as a researcher in a relevant Earth System 
Science domain (i.e. climate, atmospheric or ocean science).

·       An exceptional record of science innovation and creativity plus the 
ability to apply well developed research skills to scientific investigations 
and applications of significant consequence.

·       Demonstrated ability to create and manage strategic alliances through 
your experience in building successful collaborative partnerships across 
agencies, and working as a trusted advisor to government.

project/program (across disciplines and/or agencies) that involves a 
significant number of staff and projects/activities.
