Research Fellow, Water Quality Modelling

We seek an environmental modeller at the Australian Rivers Institute (Griffith University, Nathan Campus) to carry out research and manage a number of model applications for lakes and river basins, focusing attention on harmful algal blooms and generating scenarios to assist with bloom management and water quality restoration.

The role will be multidisciplinary, involving applications of models to integrate physical, chemical and biological processes, as well as interacting with social scientists and economists to extend the reach and relevance of model simulations.

The applicant should have demonstrated quantitative skills and have applied models as part of their PhD research. Experience with presenting model outputs and interacting with field practitioners and stakeholders would be valuable.

The Australian Rivers Institute within Griffith Sciences is one of Australia’s largest university aquatic ecosystem research groups with globally recognised expertise in river, catchment and coastal ecosystems and the interaction with these systems in society. It brings together 150 staff and post-graduate students at the Nathan and Gold Coast campuses.

The successful applicant will work in a research team led by Professors David Hamilton and Michele Burford. This team is committed to validating model applications using field and experimental data from lakes and river basins.
