The School of Earth Atmosphere and Environment (SEAE) at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, is pleased to welcome applications from talented and ambitious scientists to fill a two-year research fellowship (Level A) in Atmospheric Science. SEAE at Monash has broad interests across the full range of Earth sciences (see http://ift.tt/1M757WJ).You will undertake research on the horizontal and vertical structure of tropical and extra-tropical convection as part of a project funded by the US Department of Energy. The project will make extensive use of ground-based remote sensing observations from the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement program. A special emphasis will be the use of scanning rain and cloud radar information to elucidate convective behavior including the organisation of convection and its interaction with the large-scale atmosphere. The project is explicitly designed to support the development on new ideas as to how to represent convection in weather and climate models.You will conduct research of the highest international quality in a team of like-minded individuals. You will publish your results in world-leading journals and present them to your peers at major national and international conferences.If you feel that you have the skills and experience to make this role a success your application is encouraged.
