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://www.climateextremes.org.au

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
