The School of Earth Atmosphere and Environment (SEAE), Monash, is pleased to welcome applications from talented and ambitious scientists to fill a two-year research fellowship (Level A) in Atmospheric Science in the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes. SEAE at Monash has broad interests across the full range of Earth sciences (see http://www.monash.edu/science/schools/earth-atmosphere-environment).
To succeed in this role, you will have a PhD, good quantitative skills, and expertise in a relevant field such as climate modelling, climate dynamics, physical oceanography, atmospheric science, hydrology, mathematics, etc.
The research project will combine observational analysis and numerical modelling approaches to understand the causes of decadal-scale climate variability in the tropical Pacific Ocean and the influence of such variability on tropical weather and climate extremes. The successful applicant will conduct research focusing on the role of inter-basin interactions in determining the evolution of tropical Pacific decadal variability and how these interactions are mediated by the atmospheric circulation. The research may include idealised and comprehensive modelling of the coupled ocean-atmosphere system and statistical analysis of observed and modelled climate extremes depending on the interests of the successful applicant and the requirements of the project.
The role will be based at the School of Earth Atmosphere and Environment at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, and the work will be carried out in close collaboration with other Centre of Excellence researchers at Monash University and the other four Centre of Excellence nodes across Australia.
The successful applicant will be expected to conduct research of the highest international quality and to publish the results in world-leading journals and present them at major national and international conferences.
Closing Date: Friday, May 25.
