The ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes is a major 7-year initiative supported by the Australian Research Council. It is a consortium of five Australian universities with a suite of outstanding national and international Partner Organisations as collaborators. The Centre of Excellence research agenda encompasses interconnected research programs focused on Heatwaves, Rainfall, Drought and Variability in the Tropics and Extratropics. The ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes provides a supportive and enriching workplace for all staff and students. In particular, the Centre has a strong commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion.

The Research Associate contributes to collaborative research to better understand aspects of climate extremes. The specifics of the research project/s will depend on the interests and skillset of the research associate. Importantly, the role will contribute to one or more research programs within the Centre: Weather and Climate Interactions; Attribution and Risk; Drought; Ocean Extremes; Modelling. Specific areas of interest include, but are not restricted to, research on hail processes, boundary layer processes and synoptic scale processes.
