About Griffith University
At Griffith University we believe in, strive for and celebrate the remarkable.
We are known for our high impact research, outstanding student experience, our commitment to social justice and our welcoming environment. We’re proud of our remarkable achievements, of our people and their passion for making a positive difference. Together we contribute to the development of knowledge and learning in an attractive environment which values excellence, equity, diversity, and innovation.
The Griffith Climate Change Response Program and Griffith Centre for Coastal Management team bring this to life by developing services that differentiate, innovate and make a difference in the fields of climate and coastal research.
We are currently looking for an Ecosystem Modeller to be responsible for the development a of movement and migration model for marine mammals. The primary focus of this role is to develop, implement and verify an ecosystem model. Success in this role requires working closely with the research team of a marine biologist and oceanographer, and external collaborators.
This position involves designing and implementing models to investigate the potential impact of climate change on whales in the Southern Hemisphere. Working with an international project team which includes marine mammal experts tasked with describing marine mammal behaviour in response to ocean conditions (physical, chemical, biological) and physical oceanographers tasked with modelling future physical ocean conditions, your research will assist in bridging gaps between physical, chemical and biological parameters and ecosystem responses of marine mammals.
This is a fixed-term (two year), full-time position based at the Gold Coast campus, Queensland, Australia. The position may be extended a further 12 months subject to the candidate meeting project milestones.
The successful candidate will be highly numerate with experience setting up and running marine ecosystem and/or biogeochemical models or models in related fields. Experience working with end-to-end marine ecosystem models such as OSMOSE, Ecospace/Ecosim, ATLANTIS, SEAPODYM, INVITRO or similar is highly valued. Experience with parallel computing is also beneficial. The candidate should be comfortable working with biogeochemical model outputs (e.g. MERRA-NOBM) and the various ocean observation datasets (e.g. SeaWIFS).
Research Fellow Grade 1: $72,344 – $84,882 per annum. Salary package including 17% employer superannuation contribution: $84,643 – $99,312 per annum.

The successful applicant will play a role in the development of a strong program of research within a multi-disciplinary group to support the sustainable use of Australia’s marine resources.
You will help execute a research portfolio in the area of risk assessment and ecosystem modelling, working with a group conducting research into ecosystem-based management of the coastal and offshore waters of Australia in relation to activities such as fishing, energy, mining, tourism, environmental conservation, and rural and urban development. The research approach is based on a scientific understanding of the functioning and dynamics of socioecological systems, including the interactions of natural and multiple human activities. This work requires an understanding of marine ecological modelling, model uncertainty and modern approaches to the science-management interface.
The work will include: collation and analysis of relevant socioecological data sets (e.g. oceanography, diet contents, economic statistics, social networks and other biological, economic and social spatial and temporal data); assisting with modelling of socioecological processes; assist with multicomponent marine risk assessments; development and refinement of methods for incorporating observational data information into multispecies and ecosystem models; and the development and refinement of methods for model parameterisation, fitting and uncertainty analysis
Your duties will include
Location: St Lucia, QLD
Salary: AU$97,276 – AU$105,269 plus up to 15.4% superannuation
Tenure: 5 years specified term

Postgraduate Course “Consumer – Resource Interactions in Times of Global Environmental Change”
2 – 6 December 2018
De Bergse Bossen, Driebergen, The Netherlands
This one-week course will illustrate how adopting a consumer-resource approach can change our understanding of interactions, and how adaptive processes can be important in understanding both academic and applied problems in ecology. This edition of the course will focus on consumer-resource interactions in times of global environmental change at three levels of integration: the individual-population level, the community-ecosystem level and the socio-ecological level.
The topics will be introduced by world-renowned experts, with a focus on the latest developments and ongoing research efforts. The introductions will provide the starting point for practical work by the participants to make the acquired knowledge operational. To this end, sub-groups are challenged to develop ideas for their own research: analyzing their own data, writing a proposal, planning an experiment, developing a model or writing a paper.

FOUR PHD SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE
The Queensland Government has funded the Queensland Water Modelling Network (QWMN) to develop a broad network and build the capacity of the modelling of surface water and groundwater resources in the state.
Through the QWMN Innovation Program, the QWMN will support innovation in the sector and enhance modelling capacity by placing a cohort of PhD students with host universities and key industry partners to carry out applied research in water modelling, for natural resources management and environmental outcomes.
As a PhD student (Innovation Associate), you will receive a stipend and generous top up, industry-relevant water modelling experience, and mentoring and personal development carried out through the university, industry partner and the QWMN. As an Innovation Associate you will be expected to become an industry leader in innovation and technology in the water modelling sector.
Titles of the PhD projects under the Innovation Program, and their respective university supervisors and industry partners, are:
There are two steps to applying for a PhD scholarship under the QWMN Innovation Associates program. You must complete both steps in order to be considered for one of the four PhD scholarships.
