CSIRO undertakes pure and applied research within a project-based framework with staff participating in teams that deliver innovative science-based solutions to stakeholders. CSIRO's Environment Business Unit (BU) brings together CSIRO's strong capabilities in marine, atmospheric, water and terrestrial science disciplines under one team. The BU employs over 800 staff at 22 sites across the country with an annual budget of over $200m.
Sea-level Rise (SLR), a widely recognized indicator of anthropogenic climate change, demands comprehensive investigation by maintaining long-term observation networks, improving understanding of all contributing sea level processes, as well as building up modelling capability to simulate the evolution of those processes in the past and the future. Society needs reliable and detailed regional sea level information for comprehending past changes and making informed projections for the future. CSIRO is the leading entity in Australia and the Pacific region with the expertise to produce process-based sea-level projections. The future sea-level projection products developed by CSIRO have been utilized by over 20 countries.
As part of the Sea Level, Waves and Remote Sensing (SLWRS) Team, in the Climate Intelligence Research Program, CSIRO Environment, this role will play a pivotal role in understanding, observing, modelling and projecting sea level on both global and regional scales. You will carry out innovative sea level research development across research areas including (but not limited to) global and regional sea-level projections, sea level budget closure, historical sea-level reconstruction, ocean/climate/earth system modelling for sea level applications, and sea-level fingerprint due to land ice melting. Over time, you will be expected to build up capability by managing junior staff members and research projects, mentoring students and postdoctoral fellows. Additionally, you will engage actively with various stakeholders to share sea level research findings and raise public awareness of climate change issues, including SLR.
