Ocean Model Manager

Please quote ref no: BAS 65/11
Closing date for applications: 22 Sep 2011

Main Description

The British Antarctic Survey (BAS), part of the Natural Environment Research Council, aims to undertake a world-class programme of scientific research, and to sustain for the UK an active and influential regional presence and a leadership role in Antarctic affairs.

Based within the Polar Oceans programme at our Cambridge office, you will be part of a team investigating oceanographic variability in the Southern Ocean and the Arctic, and its impacts on the Earth System. The group runs sophisticated idealised, regional and global oceanographic models (including sea ice and ice shelf components) to simulate past conditions and also to predict how the ocean will evolve in the future. Models are run on local and national supercomputing facilities and generate large volumes of data, and we also use output from very large models run by external collaborators. You will be responsible for managing all aspects of our ocean modelling infrastructure and writing code to support model users. You will also process and maintain the large datasets required to force our ocean models. Other datasets, such as those produced by satellite remote sensing, will also require management.

Qualifications: You will have a degree or higher qualification in computer science or relevant science subject, previous experience of programming in a linux/unix environment, and experience of handing large data sets.

Duration: open-ended

Salary: Salary will be in the range of £26,180.00 to £29,410 per annum. We offer a generous benefits package including a final salary pension scheme, free car parking, flexible working hours and 30 days annual leave.
