RESEARCH FELLOW GRADE 1 OR 2, ECOSYSTEM MODELLER
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.
Research Fellow Grade 2: $92,511 – $109,860 per annum. Salary package including 17% employer superannuation contribution: $108,238 -$128,536 per annum.
Level of appointment offered will be dependant on qualifications and experience.

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:
- Project 1: “Modelling water quality in ungauged Great Barrier Reef catchments”
(University of Southern Queensland / Bureau of Meteorology)
- Project 2: “Fate and transport of sediment and pathogens in water supply reservoirs”
(The University of Queensland / Griffith University / Seqwater)
- Project 3: “Human and climate driven pressures on groundwater and surface water resources of the Gold Coast”
(Griffith University / The University of Queensland / City of Gold Coast)
Project 4: “Quantifying evapotranspiration in groundwater dependent ecosystems”
(Queensland University of Technology / Queensland Government – Department of Environment and Science)
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.
- Step 1
Once you have selected the project you are interested in, you must complete and submit an application to the relevant host university for that PhD project.
- Step 2
You will also need to submit an application for the top-up scholarship to the QWMN. The application to the QWMN must include: confirmation of receipt of the PhD application (Step 1) to the host university, a targeted CV, and a 2-page cover letter.
