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.

The opportunity
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.

About you
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).

Salary range
Research Fellow Grade 1: $72,344 – $84,882 per annum. Salary package including 17% employer superannuation contribution: $84,643 – $99,312 per annum.
