Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Mathematics of Climate Extremes
HobartClosing date: 26th June 2018
CSIRO is seeking to appoint a CSIRO Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Mathematics of Climate Extremes.
As the successful applicant you will investigate, explore and understand key dynamics that determine climate predictability and the casual relationships that underpin predictable processes. You will use your skills with applied mathematics to discover and understand climate extremes and recurrence in ‘climate like’ dynamical systems.
Your duties/responsibilities will include:
- Under the direction of the Climate Forecasting Team Leader and in collaboration with senior research scientists, carry out innovative, impactful research of strategic importance to CSIRO that will, where possible, lead to novel and important scientific outcomes.
- Carry out fundamental and innovative research on the causal relationships, dynamics and predictability of the drivers of climate variability and regimes.
- Use applied mathematics including dynamical systems theory in conjunction with coupled climate model simulations to explore and understand key dynamics that determines climate predictability and the causal relationships that underpin predictable processes.
To be successful you will need:
- A doctorate (or will shortly satisfy the requirements of a PhD) in a relevant discipline area, such as Applied Mathematics, Theoretical Physics or Geophysical Fluid Dynamics with a strong academic record and demonstrated publications of relevance to the position.
- Demonstrated specific expertise in a relevant branch of applied mathematics such as dynamical systems, extreme value theory or theoretical meteorology.
- Advanced computational skills including code development and shell scripting.
