NIWA is a dynamic research organisation whose purpose is to enhance the economic value and sustainable management of New Zealand's aquatic resources and environments, to provide understanding of climate and the atmosphere and increase resilience to weather and climate hazards to improve safety and wellbeing of New Zealanders.
We are seeking an accomplished and engaging scientist to conduct research and provide scientific services in climate variability and change. The work includes using a mix of observational data analysis and model experiments to help understand the large scale dynamical processes in the Southern Hemisphere that drive regional climate variability and change. The appointee will work closely with scientists involved in climate modelling or who are seeking to apply climate model results or information to assess climate-sensitive impacts in fields such as hydrology, coastal processes, agricultural production, hazard assessment, and economics. The appointee will also apply climate research for end users and customers and engage in broad communication of climate science to a range of users, stakeholders, the media, and the public at large.
Candidates should have a research degree or equivalent experience in climate science, with a background in atmospheric science, physics or mathematics. They will have broad knowledge and experience in atmospheric dynamics, a good understanding of meteorology and be experienced with climate observations and their analysis. They will have excellent computer literacy including proficiency in software for data analysis, along with a good understanding of and the ability to apply advanced statistical procedures to environmental data.
The position requires good problem-solving skills, initiative and results orientation. The appointee will also need good communication skills, along with a track record with the application and dissemination of science-based results and experience in working with stakeholders and end-users. Candidates should also have an ability to work in a team environment and to be well-organised.
This is an exciting opportunity to join New Zealand's internationally renowned environmental research organisation, and work as part of a progressive and highly innovative team.
