Hi,
I would like to bring your attention to the Earth Scientist position
with expertise in Informatics, now open through USAJobs:

<https://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/333843900>

Description (from the posting):

The Science & Exploration Directorate, Earth Sciences Division, Global
Change Data Center (Code 610.2), is seeking a senior scientist to lead
research projects to utilize remote sensing data in Atmospheric Science
applications and develop Earth Science Informatics tools at the Goddard
Earth Science Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC).

As an Aerospace Technologist (AST) specializing in Earth Science data
analysis and informatics, you will lead a team of scientists and
software developers in: the design, planning, development, testing and
evolution of on-line Earth Science data analysis and visualization
tools; the investigation of science data provenance used to evaluate
measurements suitability for a given science parameter and/or
interpretation; and the cultivation of science partnerships and
successful pursuit of winning proposals (solicited and unsolicited) for
applied research.

The scope of responsibilities also includes: sensitivity analysis for
global and regional assessments of aerosol, clouds and other atmospheric
parameters; development of procedures (such as Giovanni see
http://disc.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/giovanni/overview/index.html) that bring
together and visualize datasets in various ways (e.g., merging,
co-registering); outreach to the science research community to promote
awareness of products and services; working with applications
communities to facilitate usage of NASA remote-sensing data for societal
benefits; and filling leadership roles in science data informatics
working groups. In addition, the incumbent will develop strategies to
address various aspects of multi-mission data analysis (e.g.,
inter-comparisons, data quality, data fusion) in conjunction with
interested members of the science community, and reusable across other
science disciplines.

A successful record of winning proposals in the Earth Science arena is
required. Significant publications in prominent Earth Science
peer-reviewed journals are expected.
