Research Fellow - Water Science

CDD - 2 ans - Début : Octobre
Date limite de réponse : 13 septembre 2022
Missions :
The University of Western Australia (UWA) is ranked amongst the top 100 universities in the world and a member of the prestigious Australian Group of Eight research-intensive universities.  With an enviable research track record, vibrant campus and working environments, supported by the freedom to ‘innovate and inspire’ there is no better time to join Western Australia’s top university.

About the team

WaterSmart Dams is a flagship project for Centre for Water and Spatial Science (CWSS) with a multidisciplinary team of researchers, project staff and industry collaborators to address the challenge of supplying water for agriculture in southwestern Australia’s changing and drying climate. CWSS sits within the UWA School for Agriculture and Environment at The University of Western Australia (UWA), unifies 12 leading water and geospatial science researchers from schools across UWA. CWSS provides research leadership in water and spatial science in Western Australia and is a preferred research partner for national and international projects.

About the opportunity

You will join the UWA-CWSS WaterSmart Dams team, working on water security for agriculture and SmartDam runoff technologies, plus water storage options to address farm water security challenges in southwestern Australia.

You will lead work on understanding how the changing climate is impacting on-farm water security, through changes to surface water resources and runoff production in agricultural landscapes. A focus of this role will be leading research with industry partners, growers and producers to understand how farm water technologies and dam storage can be improved to enhance water security, along with new options to enhance runoff and reduce storage (dam) water loss.
22 months

Compétences requises :

To succeed in this role, you will have experience and a skillset spanning field experiments and hydrological instrumentation, plus hydrological modelling applicable to farm runoff and dam water storage. You will work with other members of the WaterSmart Dams team, including field and modelling hydrology, micrometeorology, agricultural economics, spatial data and machine learning scientists, plus web-app developers. You will learn from the broad team to enhance your own skillset and experiences. As part of this team, you will deliver WaterSmart tools and outreach to industry to achieve real impact by improving on-farm water security and drought resilience.

Note: A current ‘C’ class driver’s licence is a requirement for this position.
