CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research (CMAR) is currently seeking an Ecosystem / Socioecological Modeller to join the team, conducting research into ecosystem-based management of the coastal and offshore waters of Australia in relation to activities such as fishing, energy, tourism, environmental conservation, and urban and rural development. The approach is based on a scientific understanding of the functioning and dynamics of ecological systems and the interactions of multiple human activities within them. The work will include: collation and analysis of spatial and temporal data; modelling of ecological and socioecological processes; and development and implementation of complex marine ecosystem models. This position will provide the successful applicant with opportunities to play a key role in the development of a strong program of research within a multi-disciplinary group of about 30 scientists in this vital area of Australia’s marine research.
