If you're after a rewarding career, Monash University can help make it happen. With leading academics and world-class infrastructure, combined with a ranking in the top 100 universities worldwide, we offer all you need to build a brighter future.

The Opportunity

The School of Earth, Atmosphere and Environment (SEAE) is a multi-disciplinary school, passionate about shaping the world for a sustainable future. Our broad range of undergraduate courses explore the whole earth system, including atmospheric science, climate change, landscape evolution, hydrogeology, environmental geochemistry, and soil science. If you have completed a PhD in atmospheric science or a related field and are ready to take the next step in your academic career, this could be the role for you.

The successful candidate will contribute to teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in atmospheric science alongside other SEAE staff. They will be responsible for developing and delivering lectures and practicals, assessing student's work, and they will have the opportunity to undertake some field teaching. The development of the curriculum is carried out centrally within SEAE; however, there is flexibility to deliver teaching in the candidate's area of expertise.

The Level A academic will be part of the Monash Atmospheric Science Group. The successful candidate will be expected to carry out collaborative research with the group leading to publications in high-impact international journals. Research interests include clouds and convection, tropical meteorology, numerical modelling, boundary layers, climate change, and mesoscale meteorology.

This role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.

At Monash University, we are committed to being a Child Safe organisation. Some positions at the University will require the incumbent to hold a valid Working with Children Check.
