Scientific Programmer Position in Visualization of Meteorological Simulation and Observation Data

Technical University of Munich, Computer Graphics and Visualization Group


We are seeking a scientific programmer to work with us on the next-generation 3D meteorological ensemble visualization software "Met.3D". The software is available open-source at and is used by an increasing number of meteorological research groups, including the collaborative research centre "Waves to Weather" (

Your task will be to implement major enhancements to the software's graphics algorithms, data processing algorithms and user interface. You'll be part of a growing working group that develops novel visualization techniques to improve the way meteorologists visually analyse their data, in particular ensemble simulation data.

To apply, you should have a university degree (BSc/MSc) in computer science, meteorology, or a related field. Profound knowledge of C++ programming is required, ideally you also have experience in GPU-based real-time computer graphics with OpenGL. Knowledge of software development with Qt under Linux and Windows will be advantageous.

The position will be located at the Chair for Computer Graphics and Visualization at the Technical University of Munich, Germany (Head: Prof. Dr. Ruediger Westermann).

The position is full-time and paid according to the German public service pay scale, up to TV-L E13 depending on your qualification. It is initially limited to 12 months. If you are interested, there may be a possibility to continue with a PhD project in meteorological visualization after the first 12 months; other options may be available as well.
