 To be successful you will need:

  • A doctorate and or equivalent research experience in a relevant discipline area, such as physical oceanography, environmental modelling or applied fluid dynamics. Several years of postdoctoral experience, and a demonstrated record of innovative development and implementation of three dimensional hydrodynamic and/or wave models to address issues related to coastal, shelf and estuarine circulation.
  • Demonstrated advanced skills in mathematics, statistics, numerical methods and computer programming. Extensive experience with Linux/UNIX-based systems and highly developed programming skills in languages such as FORTRAN, C, Python and MATLAB.
  • Demonstrated ability to work with field data and models in interpreting coastal dynamics.
  • The ability to work effectively as part of a multi-disciplinary, regionally dispersed research team, and carry out independent individual research, to achieve organisational goals.
  • A record of science innovation and creativity plus the ability & willingness to incorporate novel ideas and approaches into scientific investigations.
