The Opportunity

This newly created Research Fellow position is in the School of Earth, Atmosphere and Environment and is fully funded by the Australian Research Council’s Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes (CLEX). The role will not only contribute to but also benefit from being a part of the CLEX community. The Centre’s research agenda encompasses interconnected research programs focused on Weather and Climate Interactions, Drought, Attribution and Risk, and Ocean Extremes as well as Modelling. CLEX is a major seven-year initiative funded by the Australian Research Council. The Centre is led by UNSW Sydney and partners with Monash, The University of Melbourne, The Australian National University and The University of Tasmania alongside a suite of national and international partner organisations.

As part of the Modelling Research Program (RP) of CLEX, the Research Fellow will conduct experiments with the Australian Community Climate and Earth System Simulator (ACCESS) atmospheric model at both low (100km) and high (10km) resolution to identify what features and processes are important to capturing extremes and how resolution affects the simulation. The experiments will follow protocols such as AMIP and AMP-future4K to explore extremes in both present and future climate change.

The Appointee will hold a doctoral qualification in atmospheric or climate science or a closely related discipline or equivalent accreditation and standing. Your skills in conducting climate model experiments and experience in analysis of large datasets, ideally in high performance computing environments, will enable you success in this position.

This role is a full-time or part-time position and flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.

Your application must address the selection criteria. Please refer to “How to apply for Monash Jobs“.
