We require a motivated and qualified Scientific Software Engineer to join the UK Earth system model core development team, which has responsibility to develop, apply, evaluate and support the use of future generation UK Earth system models (UKESM). The applicant will work on developing and supporting the use of flexible software tools for diagnostic evaluation of UKESM simulations. A key requirement will be regular interaction with a range of UK scientists engaged in the development and evaluation of UKESM, in particular working with these scientists to support the development of novel evaluation tools.

 

You will have:

- a PhD in computational science, mathematics or a quantitative physical science (or equivalent research experience)

- a clear ability to develop novel approaches to handling large volumes of simulation data.

- Extensive experience in programming languages such as; Python, Unix/Linux, C++, Fortran

- Knowledge of programming in a massively parallel environment.

 

Past experience in working with large geophysical numerical models would be an advantage

We seek a motivated researcher to join the UK Earth system model core development team, which has responsibility to develop, apply, evaluate and support the use of future generation UK Earth system models (UKESM). The applicant will work on the development of novel evaluation tools and techniques to exploit satellite data in the evaluation of the UK's new Earth system model, UKESM1. This is an exciting opportunity to join both the UKESM core team and the new NERC-funded UKESM Long Term Science Multi-centre project. UKESM1will be a national UK modelling resource and constitutes the UK's primary contribution to the forthcoming 6th Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP6). The initial scientific focus of the post will be on evaluating biophysical and biogeochemical land-atmosphere interactions involving the carbon and water cycles.

 

You will have:

- Excellent programming skills

- Demonstrable experience of working with large data sets, ideally satellite-based, and their use in model evaluation

- Strong verbal and written communication skills

- Good knowledge of Earth system and climate science, and a desire to work at the cutting edge of this field

 

The National Centre for Earth Observation (NCEO) is a distributed centre of approximately 100 scientists from UK institutions including the University of Reading. This role will form part of NCEO's commitment to delivering National Capability in Earth Observation science to NERC and forms a part of the NCEO contribution to the UKESM LTSM project and the UKESM core group.
