Researcher in Data assimilation and ensemble methods, ref no 1671 The research department of SMHI (The Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute) consists of about 100 researchers funded both internally and externally. We work normally in projects with focus on applied research, quality insurance and long-term perspective. The work environment is characterized by flexible working arrangements, responsibility and personal development. The unit “Meteorological Analysis and Prediction” conducts research and development of weather prediction models, assimilation of observations and applications of forecast data. We are looking for a senior researcher in the field of meteorology who will, in collaboration with the group, develop research activities in numerical weather prediction by weaving together data assimilation and ensemble methods. Data assimilation defines the initial state for the weather prediction model, while ensemble methods are used for probabilistic forecasts. The researcher will lead the scientific development of an ensemble-based data assimilation system that will improve operational weather forecasts in the long term. Furthermore, the post aims to contribute to the development and implementation of new methods, both for data assimilation, especially flow-dependent, in a regional weather prediction model and for perturbation / verification / interpretation of ensemble forecasts. The position is permanent at our office in Norrköping (Sweden). Your Profile The announced position requires knowledge of the physical, mathematical, and numerical aspects of weather prediction models. The work will include scientific publishing, project management, application for research funding and the creation / maintenance of national / international networks. Doctorate degree in natural science / mathematics is beneficial. The job requires also experience and interest in programming, in working with large systems and with a lot of data. Software systems are developed in Fortran with future increased elements of C++. We use Unix / Linux on high-performance cluster computers as well as on desktop computers. We attach great importance that you are goal-oriented and have a methodical approach. You should take responsibility for progressing your own work. As the work is done in close collaboration with the group of modelers at SMHI and with colleagues at other institutions within and outside Europe, high level of English is required both in spoken and written form. You should also be willing and able to learn Swedish at a working language level within 1 year of starting the position. Do you want more information? If you want to know more, please contact Head of Unit “Meteorological Analysis and Prediction” Heiner Körnich (email@example.com). You can also contact personnel officer Susanne Gullmar. Union representatives is for SACO Lennart Robertsson and for ST Barry Broman. All can be reached at phone +46 11 495 8000 or via email Firstname.Lastname@smhi.se. Please submit your application marked with reference number 1671 latest October 19, 2012 by e-mail to Registrator@smhi.se or by post to SMHI, SE-601 76 Norrköping.
