[Met-jobs] Ocean/Climate post-doc opportunity at UNSW

From Jan Zika <>
To "" <>
Date Tue, 6 Mar 2018 01:16:59 +0000

Dear met-jobs
We seek an outstanding Postdoctoral Research Associate to address the challenge 
of improving projections of ocean heat content increase and the associated 
global and regional sea level change.  The successful candidate will work on 
the detection and attribution of changes in ocean temperatures and salinity 
using historical observations and the latest generation of global coupled 
atmosphere ocean climate models. The analysis will aim to quantify the 
underlying mechanisms controlling the distribution of ocean temperature and 
salinity change.

About the role

- A$91K - A$98K per year (depending on experience) plus 17% employer    
superannuation and leave loading
- 3 years Fixed Term
- This position is offered flexibly, either full time or part time.

To be successful in this role you will have:

-PhD or equivalent qualification in physical oceanography, physical climate 
science, or ocean or climate modelling
-Strong research and publication track record (relative to career opportunity) 
in physical oceanography, large-scale ocean-atmosphere dynamics or global 
climate modeling and model development
-Experience in running ocean or climate models and analysing ocean dynamical 
-Expertise in the analysis and interpretation of observational data sets and/or 
model output
-Excellent oral and written communication skills
-Demonstrated programming skills in a Unix/Linux environment (e.g. Fortran, 
shell scripts, NCL, R, Matlab)

Please refer to the position description for the full selection criteria. You
