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 Bureau’s expanded water information role is enhancing the quality and utility of Australia’s water information by producing the National Water Account, water resource assessments and water availability forecasting services, supported by a national water monitoring and data collection network. These responsibilities add to the Bureau’s existing responsibilities for flood forecasting and warnings. The program includes development and maintenance of an integrated, national water information system freely accessible to the public (see www.bom.gov.au/water).  
The Extended Hydrological Prediction section (EHP) has been established to develop seasonal and long term water availability and streamflow forecasting services. The seasonal streamflow forecasting service was launched in December 2010 and the service provides water availability forecasts at important locations in the Murray-Darling Basin (see www.bom.gov.au/water/ssf). The service will be extended to areas providing substantial inflows to major storages across Australia.  
  • APS Level 6 - This position will involve participating in the design and provision of water information and forecasting products in the Bureau’s Climate and Water Division. The occupant will be involved in advanced hydrologic modelling tasks requiring quantitative hydrology skills for delivery of the water forecasting products that support seasonal and long-term water forecasting services of the Division. The focus of the position is on water information product development for the Prediction Systems Unit of the Extended Hydrological Prediction Section.  
  • Executive Level 1 - The Model Developer and Systems Architect is an important member of the EHP team complementing our existing skills in modelling, systems development and forecasting services. The person will be responsible for design, develop and bring into operations hydrologic modelling systems and tools. This will involve writing functional and systems specifications, technology selection, which requires very high level of expertise in programming and operationalising scientific modelling and service delivery systems.  
  • Executive Level 1 - The Web Systems and Database Developer is an important member of the EHP team complementing our existing skills in modelling, systems development and forecasting services. Our Web Systems and Database Developer will lead and implement web-based solutions to achieve the Bureau’s Water Forecasting Service goals. Underscoring the importance of the Bureau of Meteorology’s web presence, the organisation is consistently the leading government website nationally.  
We are seeking experienced and motivated professionals who will enjoy working in a close and dynamic team environment to deliver practical environmental services and outcomes benefiting Australia.
