I would like to draw this community's attention to the following position that we are currently advertising. Applications close 5 October 2012. FEDERAL RESEARCH SCIENTIST ATMOSPHERIC DYNAMICS AND PREDICTABILITY NAVAL RESEARCH LABORATORY, WASHINGTON, DC The Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) encourages qualified scientists, from recent graduates to experienced professionals, to apply for a federal opening in the Near-Space Environments Section (NSES) of NRL's Space Science Division (SSD). The successful applicant will join a team of scientists developing global and regional atmospheric prediction tools extending from the ground to the edge of space (0-100 km). These include: * NAVGEM, the Navy's next-generation global numerical weather prediction (NWP) system * COAMPS, the Navy's regional mesoscale NWP system * NAVDAS-AR, the Navy's four-dimensional variational (4DVAR) data assimilation system, and * new adjoint- and ensemble-based predictability tools. The NSES also leads a new SSD climate modeling initiative using the WACCM configuration of the NCAR-CESM, conducts fundamental research into the dynamics of the deep atmosphere using models, data assimilation tools, and observations, and conducts theoretical work leading to improved physical parameterizations in models. The focus of current research is to extend Navy prediction capabilities out to seasonal time scales, with specific emphasis in NSES on deep coupling pathways between the troposphere and the near space (stratosphere/mesosphere). Our work supports related international programs such as DynVAR, SNAP and DEEPWAVE. Further information can be found at the NSES web site: http://geospace.nrl.navy.mil/gst/?content=section;code=7631. Relevant qualifications and experience for this position include (but are not restricted to): * experience with state-of-the-art atmospheric NWP models and 4DVAR data assimilation algorithms on high-performance computing (HPC) systems * theoretical grounding and hands-on experience in the application or development of state-of-the-art atmospheric models and data assimilation systems/techniques * strong programming skills, especially Interactive Data Language and Python, and particularly MPI Fortran 90/95 in application to development of NWP models and data-assimilation algorithms * theoretical grounding in the physics and dynamics of the deep atmosphere (0-100 km) * excellent writing skills, with a demonstrated ability/potential to write peer-reviewed scientific papers and novel scientific proposals for submission to funding agencies * minimum requirements are a Bachelors Degree in a relevant discipline, with Ph. D. preferred. Formal applications or questions should be emailed to Dr. Steve Eckermann (email@example.com: Tel. 202-404-1299). Applications close 5 October 2012. NRL is an equal opportunity employer.
