The Max Planck Institute for Meteorology (MPI-M) is a multidisciplinary
centre for climate research located in Hamburg, Germany. It has an
internationally recognised reputation in climate modelling. Within the
project EUDAT (EUropean DATa) funded by the European Commission under Grant
agreement no 283304 we are looking for a

Scientific Programmer (m/f; 2011-22)

with a strong background in computational science, web frameworks and / or
climate simulation data handling. Within the department "The Atmosphere in
the Earth System", the successful applicant will join a team that develops,
maintains, improves, and uses the software package "Climate Data Operators"

His/her task will be to adapt the CDOs to their use in web environments and
frameworks as they will be developed and used in EUDAT. Performance and
scal-ability issues will be of major importance, but also usability and
meta-data administration.

computa-tional science or a related area is required. Excellent programming
skills in Java, C++, C, and scripting languages (shells and Python) as well
as knowledge in Web Services and Frameworks and associated areas are

The MPI-M is located in the heart of one of Europe's most liveable and
vibrant cit-ies.  It provides a highly international and interdisciplinary
environment for conducting scientific research as well as access to
state-of-the-art scientific facilities. For further information, please

Advancement of Sciences and those of the German civil service. The Max Planck
Institute for Meteorology seeks to increase the number of female scientist
