The Max Planck Institute for Meteorology (MPI-M) is a multidisciplinary centre for cli-mate research located in Hamburg, Germany. It has an internationally recognised reputation in climate modelling. Within the project MiKlip (Mittelfristige Klimaprognosen, Decadal Climate Prediction) by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) we are looking for Three Scientific Programmers (m/f, SAS2011 -16, -17, -18) with a strong background in climate modelling, numerical mathematics, or computational science. Within the Director's research group in the department "The Ocean in the Earth System", the successful applicants will join a team that establishes, oper-ates, uses, and improves the pre-operational MiKlip central decadal prediction system. SAS2011-16: His/her initial task will be to establish the software infrastructure for the ensemble prediction system. Later task comprise the implementation of improvements arising from other components in MiKlip, such as in assimilation and ensemble generation techniques or in process representation. A Ph.D. in applied mathematics, meteorology, oceanography, physics, computational science or a related area is desired. Experience in the development, implementation and optimisation of coupled climate models and of scientific workflows on high-performance computing platforms is essential. Further essential skills are the ability and desire to work as part of a team to help maintain a robust and flexible source code. SAS2011-17: His/her initial task will be to establish a flexible scientific workflow management system based on industry standards. Later tasks involve the adaptation of this system to the changing and growing requirements of the MiKlip central decadal prediction system. A degree in applied mathematics, meteorology, oceanography, physics, computational science or a related area is required. Excellent programming skills in Java, C++, C, and scripting languages (preferred Python) as well as knowledge in Web Services and associated areas are essential. Additionally, experience with efficient I/O on high per-formance platforms is expected. Our development systems are Unix/Linux based. SAS2011-18: His/her tasks will be the implementation and further development of post-processing routines, data dissemination, and the communication of results and uncertainties as part of a scientific workflow framework. A degree in applied mathematics, meteorology, oceanography, physics, computational science or any related area is required for this position. Excellent programming skills in C++, scripting languages (preferred Python) and Web Services are essential. Pre-vious knowledge in data mining and advanced graphics software is of advantage. Our development systems are Unix/Linux based. The MPI-M is located in the heart of one of Europe's most liveable and vibrant cities. It provides a highly international and interdisciplinary environment for conducting sci-entific research as well as access to state-of-the-art scientific facilities. For further in-formation, please contact Prof. Jochem Marotzke (jochem.marotzke(at)zmaw.de) or Dr. Wolfgang Müller (wolfgang.mueller(at)zmaw.de). Applications should be forwarded to the address indicated below. The positions are initially offered for three years starting immediately, with the possibility of one year's extension. Payment will be in accordance with German public service positions (TVoeD E13), including extensive social security plans. The conditions of employment, including upgrades and duration, follow the rules of the Max Planck So-ciety for the Advancement of Sciences and those of the German civil service. The Max Planck Institute for Meteorology seeks to increase the number of female scientist and encourages them to apply. Handicapped persons with comparable qualifications receive preferential status. The selection process will start on 15 September 2011 and will continue until the positions are filled. Please submit a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, and the names, ad-dresses, and telephone numbers of two references via E-Mail: email@example.com (pdf-attachments max. 2 MB only), or by post to: Max Planck Institute for Meteorology Administration (2011-16, 17 or 18) Bundesstrasse 53 D-20146 Hamburg, Germany
