Position: Postdoctoral/Research Fellow in Ocean Modelling
Institution: Australian National University
Location: Canberra, Australian Capital Territory, Australia
Duties: We seek applications from motivated and creative scientists for a position in Ocean Modelling. The role will include running and analysing high resolution ocean model simulations to examine mechanisms for warming of Antarctic continental shelf waters and (depending upon interest) may also involve contributing to the development of new ultra-high resolution regional model configurations. The successful applicant will have a strong research profile in dynamical oceanography, and experience in ocean modelling
Requirements: A PhD (or awarding of a PhD within six months of appointment commencement for appointments at level A) in physical oceanography, climate science, or other relevant field, such as physics or mathematics; Research experience as evidenced by publications and independent research of a high international standard; Achievement in a research field related to ocean dynamics is highly desirable; Experience in analysing output from numerical models of the climate system and programming (e.g. Fortran, Python) and High Performance Computing; Ability to supervise research students and research support staff
