Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Regional Climate Modelling Technical Support Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation * Exciting opportunity to apply your technical computing skills * Make a real impact - working towards improving Australia's climate and environment! * Come, join Australia's premier science & technology research organisation CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research are seeking to appoint a motivated and experienced technical support scientist who will provide programming support for the development and evaluation of an ACCESS limited area climate model. This position is part of the Centre for Australian Weather and Climate Research (CAWCR), a partnership between CSIRO and the Bureau of Meteorology, which is leading the development of an Earth systems model known as the Australian Community Earth System Simulator (ACCESS) for application across a range of time scales from numerical weather prediction to climate change projection. ACCESS is developing capability for simulation of both the global coupled climate system and the climate on the regional scale at finer spatial resolution, with the latter supporting climate change projection suitable for use in climate impacts and adaptation applications. The modelling capability is being developed in collaboration with the UK Met Office Hadley Centre. . Specifically you will: - Solve technical computing problems associated with the ACCESS regional climate model and associated software, including nudging/boundary schemes and underpinning ancillary data files - Develop and maintain a strong working knowledge of the ACCESS atmospheric model code and options as applied to regional climate simulation - Consult with external modelling groups in order to gain expertise in, and solve technical problems with the ACCESS regional climate model. Location: Aspendale, VIC Salary: $73K to $82K plus up to 15.4% Superannuation Ref No: IA11/00100 To be successful you will have: - A B.Sc. (Hons) with a major in computing, engineering or physical sciences; - Well developed skills in FORTRAN 90 programming; - Demonstrated experience with UNIX/Linux systems; - Demonstrated experience working with climate or atmospheric models or model datasets; and - Excellent written and verbal communication skills including the ability to document results and communicate effectively with colleagues and clients in order to meet project goals and timelines. The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation is Australia's national science agency and one of the largest and most diverse research agencies in the world.
