Australia Bureau of Meteorology

Australia 🇦🇺

The Bureau’s Research Program sits within the Science and Innovation Group and is the main driver of science-based innovation in the Bureau of Meteorology. In supporting the Bureau to deliver impactful weather, climate, ocean and water information services, the research contributes to advancing meteorological and earth system sciences in Australia and globally. Research activities cover the broad fields of weather, climate, oceanography, earth systems modelling, data set development, process studies, and application development

The role involves close collaboration with scientific and technical staff across the Research Program, and with other Bureau employees and external stakeholders, requiring experience in liaising effectively with external stakeholders.

The Hydrologist role in research is to support and lead research in select projects, and to interact with scientists and external research projects, working collaboratively with Bureau internal staff to deliver research to operations, and working with customers where required.

Tasks include setting up, parameterising, and evaluating continental-scale hydrological/land surface models, trialling assimilation of various remotely sensed datasets to improve performance of hydrological/land surface models, using scripting and coding languages (e.g. Python) on Bureau Linux systems and understanding customer needs and input into external projects when required.

Openness to collaborate across the Hydrology Sciences section and other teams within Research as well as Research to Operations teams is expected to increase the success of the project deliveries and operationalisation.
