Multiple Postdoc positions: Environmental Science/Earth Sciences 2457 views

The Centre for Water and Landscape Dynamics, Fenner School of Environment & Society at Australian National University (ANU) are seeking several enthusiastic and talented postdoctoral fellows to join our research team for 2 year and 3 year fixed term contracts.

Research areas:
  • Developing multi-sensor data-fusion methods for precipitation analysis and nowcasting;
  • Hydrological modelling and forecasting of soil moisture and vegetation condition;
  • Combining satellite remote sensing and airborne LiDAR to predict floodplain and wetland hydrodynamics;
  • Derivation of vegetation properties from satellite remote sensing and LiDAR for environmental condition and fire risk assessment.
  • All projects use a varying combination of biophysical modelling and airborne and satellite observation to develop science and technology that can support future information services.
  • The research partners include the Bureau of Meteorology, Geoscience Australia, and State and Territory agencies responsible for water, fire and environmental management.


  • Applicants must hold PhD (or awarding of a PhD within six months of appointment commencement) in Environmental Science, Earth Sciences, Remote Sensing, or equivalent qualifications and experience in a related area, with a track record of independent research in the field of spatial environmental modelling and/or remote sensing as evidenced by publications in peer reviewed journals and conferences.
  • Evidence of experience that is relevant to spatial research in some or all of the following areas: environmental remote sensing; spatial hydrological or land surface modelling; or airborne LiDAR analysis.
  • Specific research experience in practical management applications for information on precipitation, hydrology, bushfire risk or ecosystem condition would be an advantage but is not essential.
  • Strong computational skills using interpreted or compilable languages.
  • Familiarity with scaling analysis to HPC environments, shell scripting and processing geospatial data in a variety of vector and raster formats would be an advantage but is not essential.
  • Excellent oral and written English language skills and a demonstrated ability to communicate and interact effectively.


Apply online and upload the following documents:

  • A statement addressing each selection criteria, please indicate in application which level he/she is applying for.
  • Current CVwhich includes the names and contact details of at least three referees (preferably including a current or previous supervisor).
  • Other documents, if required.
