Interested in joining us? Have a look at the RRAP job vacancies and Higher Degree Research opportunities available below.

Southern Cross University’s National Marine Science Centre is looking for a mid-career Research Fellow or Senior Research Fellow to work with senior scientists across multiple research organisations and conduct high resolution cloud microphysical modelling as part of the Cooling and Shading sub-program of the Reef Restoration and Adaptation Program (RRAP).  

The program is focused on helping the Great Barrier Reef resist, adapt and recover from the impacts of climate change.  You will play a key role in implementing research methods that support decisions about interventions and identify opportunities of reef restoration. 

Your core responsibilities will include:

  • Conduct research in aerosol, cloud, radiation interactions over the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) by use of numerical modelling tools.
  • Use LES to characterise the effect of aerosol perturbation on micro- and macro-physical properties of clouds over the GBR.
  • Conduct high resolution simulations of the dispersion, advection, and entrainment of sea salt aerosol into clouds formed over the GBR.

Positions Close on Wednesday 27 July 2022.
