3-year, full-time, Postdoctoral Fellow in ocean-atmosphere carbon fluxes observed from space, CSIRO Oceans & Atmosphere, Perth, Australia
DEADLINE: Sunday, 12 November 2017
The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) Oceans and Atmosphere is seeking to appoint a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow, with a background in marine biogeochemistry and with less than three years relevant postdoctoral experience, to develop an integrated approach to deriving global air-sea CO2 flux products using in situ observations from autonomous technologies (e.g. Biogeochemical-Argo) paired with satellite Earth observation data and biogeochemistry models, to plug a gap in space agencies' current capabilities and solve a critical issue for global carbon budgets. The successful applicant will join a multi-disciplinary supervisory team with internationally-recognised expertise in satellite remote sensing, carbon cycle modelling, marine bio-optics and ocean biogeochemistry. This is a full-time position for up to 3 years, based in Perth, Australia, offering flexible work arrangements as to how, when and where to work.
