Research Scientist – CSIRO

Research Scientist – Coastal Climate Projections

The Position

CSIRO’s Oceans & Atmosphere is seeking to appoint a physical oceanographer/physicist/engineer with skills in coastal ocean modelling, the analysis of related data products and the development of strategies to address problems for engineers and coastal managers in the context of a changing climate. In this position you will apply novel techniques and analysis skills to communicate scientific results practically to maximise information relevance and uptake.

The position requires a strong numerical background, ability to manipulate and analyse large datasets, and strong communication skills to address coastal ocean challenges. You will be a key member of a team of scientists focussed on ocean processes which most strongly affect coastal stability, from operational to climate time-scales.

Your duties/responsibilities will include:

  • Incorporate novel approaches to scientific investigations by developing original concepts and ideas for new types of analyses and/or adapting methods from other fields.
  • Contribute to development of scientific code for numerical modelling and extreme event analyses.
  • Be responsible for client liaison, data management and processing, and dissemination of data for existing and future projects in an independent manner.

Location:      Aspendale VIC or Hobart TAS
Salary:          $95K – $103K plus up to 15.4% superannuation
Tenure:         Indefinite
Reference:    55803

To be successful you will need:

  • A doctorate and Post-doctoral research experience or equivalent research experience, in a relevant discipline area, such as meteorology, oceanography, coastal engineering, marine science, mathematics, physics.
  • Familiarity with national/international oceanographic/climate research products, e.g. tide gauge, satellite altimetry and climate reanalysis data sets.
  • Experience in running hydrodynamic and/or wave models, including pre- and post-processing data (e.g. extracting boundary conditions from oceanographic research products.
