Applications are invited for up to five Super Science Fellows to
undertake exciting research on the future impacts of, and responses to,
sea level rise on the Australian coastline. International applicants are
encouraged to apply.  The prestigious ARC Super Science Fellowship
scheme targets early career researchers (within three years of
completing their PhD) who have a strong track record in research and
discovery. The Fellowships are funded through two projects which will
explore the impacts of sea level rise on the Australian coastline, and
developing decision support, adaptive guidelines and strategies for
responses to these impacts. 

The Fellowships require expertise in one or more of the following areas
(as related to sea level rise and other coastal issues): 

1.	Spatially explicit modeling; 
2.	Analysis of wetland or marine ecosystems responses; 
3.	Economic geography;
4.	Urban planning, 
5.	Legal, policy or governance frameworks.

The Fellowships will be based at the Global Change Institute at the
University of Queensland headed by Professor Ove Hoegh-Guldberg, and
will be supervised by leading international experts from across the
relevant disciplines including Peter J Mumby, Hugh Possingham, John
Quiggin, Andrew Griffiths, Stuart Phinn, Colin Woodroffe, Sarah
Derrington, Catherine Lovelock, and Tiffany Morrison. The five Fellows
will be expected to interact closely as group in order to develop
multidisciplinary solutions and outcomes for responding to rapid sea
level rise. Five Fellows will be offered a full-time position, fixed
term for three years from commencement date. Start dates are negotiable,
but Fellows applying under Project One will need to start before 31
December 2010. 

Applicants should systematically address the selection criteria in their
application and indicate the chosen project area on the cover letter.
