The Computer Science and Mathematics Division in the Computing and
Computational Sciences Directorate and the Climate Change Science
Institute (<>) at the Oak Ridge
National Laboratory (ORNL) seeks to hire an Earth System Model Developer.

Major Duties/Responsibilities:
The successful candidate will work collaboratively on several projects
with a highly diverse and multidisciplinary team of environmental,
ecological, remote sensing, climate, and computational scientists at
ORNL's Climate Change Science Institute (CCSI), other DOE Labs, the USDA
Forest Service, NASA, and partner universities to develop and evaluate
terrestrial and marine biogeochemical model components within coupled
Earth system models (ESMs). The candidate will join a growing team
within CCSI focused on model-data integration. As such, the candidate
will design, develop, and test new algorithms for carbon and nutrient
cycling in the Community Land Model (CLM), develop tools for evaluating
multiple model performance through comparison with a wide variety of
data sets, and develop methods and tools for analysis and integration of
field data, model results, and remotely sensed imagery in an Open Source
environment. The candidate will conduct research and report results in
open literature journals, technical reports, and at relevant conferences.

Qualifications Required:
A Ph.D. degree in an Earth or environmental science discipline, computer
science, or civil or environmental engineering is required. Software
engineering skills and experience developing parallel algorithms using
MPI and OpenMP in Fortran-90/Fortran-2003 and C/C++ are required. Proven
analytical skills and experience using R or Python and NCL are required.
Experience preparing documents using LaTeX in a Linux or Unix

good organizational skills, and high personal motivation are all necessary.

Desired Qualifications:
Experience using revision control systems, including Mercurial and Git,
and tracking issues with Trac or Jira are desired. Experience using R,
Python, PostgreSQL, NCO, CDO, Matlab, IDL/ENVI, and UV-CDAT is
preferred. Familiarity with NetCDF and HDF files and application
programming interfaces and the Climate and Forecasting (CF) conventions
is preferred. Candidates with knowledge of land-atmosphere interactions
or atmospheric turbulence, and experience with atmospheric transport
models are preferred. Experience running regional and/or global climate
or Earth system models on large supercomputers is desired. Spatial
analysis skills using GRASS/GDAL and experience processing remote
sensing imagery, particularly from MODIS and LANDSAT, is desired.
