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 <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
