Australia: Research Fellow in Biogeochemical Systems Modeller at Griffith University.

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

We are seeking a Postdoctoral Research Fellow – Biogeochemical Systems Modeller to develop and implement biogeochemical models that describe the partitioning of Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) in coastal Antarctic ecosystems. The focus of the research will be to model the processes that move POPs between phases within the coastal Antarctic environment, with particular emphasis on physical processes such as temperature change and sea-ice melt, and biological processes such as plankton blooms. The position is jointly funded by the Australian Antarctic Division and Griffith University.

Durtion: This is a fixed term (up to 3 years), full time position primarily based at the Gold Coast campus, Queensland, Australia. However, the successful applicant may be required to work on other campuses of the University.

The role:  
The successful candidate will be required to develop, maintain and implement a model of the distribution and movement of Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) in coastal Antarctic ecosystems in the MATLAB programming environment. This is principally a research position but the occupant may be required to participate in undergraduate teaching and postgraduate supervision as appropriate.

The person:
The successful candidate will require a PhD in applied mathematics or similar field, with specific applications to modelling complex biogeochemical systems. There is a requirement for competency in computer programming, including in the Matlab environment, and sound problem solving skills. It is also imperative that the successful candidate have a strong publication record and be able to demonstrate their experience in the leadership and development of research publications in leading international journals.

Salary range:
Research Fellow, Grade 1: AUD $63,153 – $74,287 per annum. For positions over two years, salary package including 17% superannuation contribution: AUD $73,889 – $86,917 per annum.
