Dear Climlist,

 

 

The School of Earth Atmosphere and Environment (SEAE) 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).

<http://www.monash.edu/science/schools/earth-atmosphere-environment)>

 

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.

 

Location: Clayton campus

 

Employment Type: Full-time

 

Duration: 2 year fixed-term appointment

 

Remuneration: $66,706 – $90,532 pa Level A (plus 9.5% employer
