The Bureau of Meteorology is Australia's national weather, climate and water agency. Its expertise and services assist Australians in dealing with the harsh realities of their natural environment, including droughts, floods, fires, storms, tsunami and tropical cyclones. Through regular forecasts, warnings, monitoring and advice spanning the Australian region and Antarctic territory, the Bureau provides one of the fundamental and most widely used services of government.

The Bureau contributes to national social, economic, cultural and environmental goals by providing observational, meteorological, hydrological and oceanographic services and by undertaking research into science and environment related issues in support of its operations and services.

The Science & Engineering Section within the Observations and Infrastructure Division seeks a measurement scientist to lead and manage the Bureau’s networks relating to measurements of stratospheric ozone and the spectroscopic retrieval of related atmospheric constituents. These observations continue the historic long-term record of ozone in the southern hemisphere, however, measurements are now transitioning to more modern technology which also enables the measurement of atmospheric concentrations of additional constituents. The successful applicant for this position will use his or her strong background in measurement science to ensure the ongoing collection of high quality data, scientific leadership to drive the continued development and evolution of the ozone network and sound management skills to oversee its operation, including supervision of staff, management of budget and planning and logistics.
