newly established Center for Prototype Climate Modelling (CPCM), NYU,
Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) are seeking to appoint motivated and experienced
support scientists to provide programming support to its scientists
and researchers. The center will develop new, innovative approaches
in climate forecasting, especially as they relate to the tropics and
subtropics, to improve the accuracy of algorithms used for climate
change predictions. The core activities of the center will focus on
two related themes: (I) The development of new methods, including
diagnostics, data assimilation, parametrization, and prediction; and
(II) the application of these methods to critical problems in the
dynamics of the tropical and subtropical atmosphere and ocean.
has three open positions, one senior and two junior support
scientists. Candidates for the Senior Support Scientist position
should have a Ph.D. In Meteorology,
Oceanography, Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science, Geosciences or
a related field. Candidates for the Junior Support Scientist
positions should have a bachelor’s degree in engineering, physics,
computer science, mathematics or a similar field, and at least one
year experience in scientific programming.
ideal candidate will have demonstrated experience in a subset of the
following areas:high performance (clustered) computing, scientific
programming using Fortran77/90/95/C/C++,parallel computing on Linux
clusters using MPI and/or OpenMPI, weather/climate modelling, working
with large datasets and Linux system administration.
or more of the following skills will be considered as an added
advantage: skill with shell programming (e.g bash, c-shell), skill
with scripting languages such as Perl, Python and PHP, working
knowledge in visualization packages such as NCL, IDL, GrADS and the
ability to write MATLAB codes to process and
in a dynamic environment, the Support Scientists will perform a wide
variety of tasks, including but not limited to scientific
programming, coupling of model components, processing and analysis of
observational data and climate model output. In general, we seek
flexible and proactive team players who enjoy learning about and
solving new scientific and computational problems.
apply, please email a single PDF file containing a cover letter, a
CV, a one-page summary of relevant projects you have worked on, and
contact information of at least two references to Asma Kamal
with Support Scientist in the
subject line. Mentioning your skype ID under contact information
positions are available immediately and will remain open until
filled. Initial appointments will be for one year, with excellent
possibility of renewal for up to five years, contingent upon positive
annual reviews. The annual salary is in the range $40K-$80K USD with
substantial benefits. The salary will be competitive, commensurate
with experience, and will comply with NYUAD guidelines. Successful
completion of a security check is required prior to employment.
