[ES_JOBS_NET] Postdoc and PhD opportunities in the new ARC CoE for Climate Extremes

Please see below for information on 14 new postdoctoral fellowships in Australia in climate variability and extremes. This is a new 7 year centre across 5 universities led by leading climate scientists in Australia. Note some applications are closing by next week.


The Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes is a major seven-year
initiative that brings together five of Australia’s leading universities and a suite of national and
international partners.

Our goal is to transform our understanding of past and present climate extremes and revolutionize our
capability to predict them into the future.

We are seeking a diverse range of talented postdoctoral research associates to help us realise this vision.
We currently have 14 positions available across our Centre’s universities in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra
and Hobart. Learn more about the Centre at: http://ift.tt/2sfVHXI.

To succeed in one of these roles you will have a PhD, good quantitative skills, and expertise in a relevant
field such as climate modelling, climate dynamics, physical oceanography, atmospheric science,
hydrology, mathematics, etc.

When you come to work with us, you’ll get more than a typical postdoc. The Centre offers an exceptional
environment to nurture and enhance your career. We offer a tailored researcher development program
which includes workshops and seminars to improve your scientific, technical and communication skills.
There are also leadership development opportunities and funding to enable you to travel between our
universities to enhance strong collaborative relationships with your peers and mentors. We also offer a
competitive internal fellowship scheme to further boost career opportunities for researchers from
traditionally underrepresented populations in our field.

The ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes seeks to be at the forefront of fostering a culture of
diversity, inclusion, respect and wellbeing. All positions are offered flexibly, either full time or part time
to suit and support your lifestyle.

We are looking for people to join our team to work on the following projects across our four core
research programs of Extreme Rainfall, Heatwaves and Cold Air Outbreaks, Drought, and Climate
Variability and Teleconnections.
