    As a Meteorological Observer you will be a team member performing a key role in conducting the Bureau of Meteorology's Antarctic Observation Program at one of Australia's Antarctic or Sub Antarctic stations.

    You will be required to perform a program of routine Surface and Upper Air Observations as well as Aviation Weather Reports in support of Antarctic flying operations. This will be conducted on a shift rostered basis covering weekdays and weekends, of which you will be a team member.

    Antarctic and Macquarie Island postings are generally 14 to 18 months in duration; dependent upon which station you have been selected for, the specific training requirements for that station and the shipping or flight schedules. This period includes pre-departure training.

    Participation in the Bureau's Antarctic Program is conducted under jurisdiction of the Australian Antarctic Program (AAp). As an expeditioner, you will undergo rigorous pre-deployment assessments to determine your suitability to the extreme environment and isolated community
