Research Fellow - Coastal Shoreline Modelling
The University of Melbourne
Parkville, Melbourne, Victoria
Salary: $69,148 - $93,830 p.a. (Level A PhD entry level $87,415 p.a.) plus 17% superannuation. 2.5 years, full-time.
The Research Fellow will conduct research on the embayment/coastal compartment-scale shoreline dynamics using numerical modelling for the prediction of sediment transport pathways.
Numerical modelling is a key tool for understanding shoreline change and predicting shoreline position in the future. The difficulty is models are often theoretical and difficult to down-scale to a particular embayment and/or sediment compartment.
The Research Fellow will bring the latest shoreline modelling techniques to Victoria to produce evidence-based predictions of shoreline dynamics in Victoria, Australia. The Research Fellow will work closely with colleagues from joint academic (The University of Melbourne, Deakin University) and government (Department of Environment, Land, Water & Planning) Victorian Coastal Monitoring Program. They will also build on existing collaborations between the program and the National Centre for Coasts and Climate through the School of Geography, CSIRO, IMOS and DHI.
The incumbent is also expected to provide technical and professional advice and supervision of postgraduate students.
