Postdoc position on orographic precipitation
and cloud microphysics

Working with industry partners, we are employing targeted field observations, numerical simulations and new satellite capabilities to identify the dynamical and microphysical mechanisms that enhance and redistribute precipitation across the alpine regions of southeast Australia and Tasmania. These observations will be used to evaluate operational numerical weather simulations specifically focusing on quantitative precipitation forecasts and estimates.

A two-year (with potential extension) post-doctoral research assistant position is sought to join a diverse team of researchers from Monash University, the University of Melbourne, the Bureau of Meteorology, Snowy Hydro and Hydro Tasmania.

This research is funded by Australian Research Council Linkage Grant LP160101494.
