Purdue University – Research Scientist – Purdue Climate Change Research Center (PCCRC)


The purpose of this position is to dynamically downscale global climate model simulations to provide ultra-high resolution forecasts for use in climate change/variability impacts studies and to determine and meet the needs of Purdue scientists for such simulations and their resulting data products.  Under the direction of the Director of the Purdue Climate Change Research Center (PCCRC), this project scientist will take input from the community, design and conduct global climate model and limited-domain high resolution simulations, and provide on a continuing basis support for the archival, dissemination, and use of the resulting data products.  It is expected that the scientist will also develop projects and data analysis products that will be suitable basis for authorship on publications or responding to grant applications. This scientist’s duties include interacting in verbal and written form with faculty, research staff, computational support staff, graduate students, undergraduates, and post Ph.D. personnel, being responsive to their needs, and providing solutions to their problems. 

* This position has a limited duration of 1 year with continuation dependent upon additional funding. Benefits do apply.





·         Ph.D. in Atmospheric Science or related field.

·         Three years’ experience in performing climate or weather model simulations within a high performance computing environment.

·         Consideration will be given to an equivalent combination of related education and required work experience.

·         Deep knowledge of one or more major community weather or climate model (such as the CESM or WRF) including how to build, test, verify, and validate simulations on industry standard linux clusters.

·         Expertise in big data analysis, digestion, and dissemination.

·         Excellent verbal and written communication skills.

·         Ability to manage day-to-day research procedures, think creatively, and be responsive to the needs of stakeholders including faculty, staff, and students who may not have expertise in climate or weather.

·         Proficiency in software: Microsoft Word, Excel and Outlook/Electronic Email.




·         Experience communicating with or educating non-scientists.

·         Demonstrated experience in processing, analyzing, and disseminated large data sets.

A background check is required for employment in this position.

For consideration submit resume and apply online at: and reference Job Number 1300685.
