The Computer Science and Mathematics Division in the Computing and
Computational Sciences Directorate at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory
(ORNL) is seeking a senior scientist to lead and continue the
development of a world-class research group in computational Earth
sciences. In addition to carrying out research, the successful candidate
will provide technical leadership and management of the Computational
Earth Sciences Group, create partnerships with other similar research
groups to carry out program goals, and actively seek Department of
Energy and other external funding. The candidate will represent the
Computer Science and Mathematics Division, the Oak Ridge National
Laboratory, and the Department of Energy in professional activities,
will prepare annual performance evaluations of group staff, and will
oversee the group budget.

The Computational Earth Science Group at ORNL is committed to leadership
in the development and analysis of global high-resolution Earth system
models with an emphasis on (1) numerical methods that are efficient,
scalable to millions of cores, highly accurate and include explicit
quantification of uncertainty; (2) model driven collection, analytics,
and evaluation of climate related data; and (3) global biogeochemical
and hydrological cycles. The Computational Earth Sciences Group Leader
will work with the Oak Ridge Climate Change Science Institute which has
been created to develop and exploit an Earth System Modeling enterprise
that will apply the scientific capabilities of our staff and our
leadership-class computational facilities to project future climates and
provide the basis for assessing likely impacts, potential adaptations to
changes in the environment, and the effectiveness of various mitigation
options.
