Postdoctoral Research Associate
A regional coupled climate model for Australia: importance of high-resolution air-sea interactions for simulating present-day and future climate

The project aim is to quantify and understand how small-scale, rapidly evolving ocean and atmosphere phenomena (e.g. ocean eddies, weather systems) that are poorly resolved in coarse-resolution Global Climate Models (GCMs) and air-sea interactions absent from high-resolution Regional Climate Models (RCMs), alter the simulation of local climate, and how these factors modify future climate projections. 

Key Criteria include:
• PhD or equivalent qualification in physical oceanography, atmospheric dynamics or physical climate science.
• Experience in running and/or analysing output from ocean, atmosphere or coupled models.
• An understanding of small-scale ocean processes and/or air-sea interactions.
• Excellent oral and written communication skills.
The position is based at the Climate Change Research Centre (http://www.ccrc.unsw.edu.au), University of New South Wales. The CCRC houses research expertise in atmospheric dynamics, physical oceanography and terrestrial processes.
