Job Description

This is a three-year postdoctoral position focused on Weather and Climate interactions and impacts on heavy rainfall in Tropical Australia.

About the Role:

This is a three-year postdoctoral position focused on Weather and Climate interactions and impacts on heavy rainfall in Tropical Australia. We seek a highly qualified and motivated candidate with experience in tropical meteorology and numerical modelling.

You will use observed and simulated data to establish the variability and co-variability of large-scale climate modes, and the signature of this variability on tropical rainfall in Australia and neighbouring regions. The goals of the research will be to establish the statistics of rainfall variability in current and future climates, and to improve our understanding of the key processes that link tropical rainfall to large-scale climate modes. This position is physically located within The University of Melbourne’s School of Earth Sciences and fully funded by the Australian Research Council’s Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes (CLEX).

You will contribute to and benefit from being a part of the CLEX community. This position sits within the CLEX Weather and Climate Interactions research team and will collaborate with senior and postdoctoral researchers in that team and other CLEX programs, including the Drought research team.

The successful applicant must have the right to live and work in Australia.

About You:

  • A PhD in atmospheric science or a related discipline.
  • Demonstrated knowledge of atmospheric dynamics and tropical meteorology
  • A high level of computing skills, including the use of high-performance computing and the analysis of complex data sets
  • Experience running climate models or regional models.
  • A demonstrated capacity to publish in high quality peer-reviewed journals, with a strong publication record in relevant areas, commensurate with experience and opportunities.
  • Candidates seeking flexible or part-time work arrangements are encouraged to apply.
