Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Open position within the IPSL Labex: Software engineer for the production of the CMIP6 simulations with the IPSL-CM6 climate models Date of publication: 5 October 2016 Expected starting date: January 2017 Location: IPSL, Université Pierre-et-Marie-Curie, Paris Supervision team: Olivier Boucher, IPSL–climate modelling centre (ICMC) engineering team Position offer: The excellence laboratory L-IPSL of the Institut Pierre-Simon Laplace offers a position of 12 months to join a collaborative effort to perform CMIP6 (Climate Model Intercomparison Project phase 6) with the IPSL-CM6 climate model. Context: IPSL has developed an Earth System Model (IPSL-CM6) that includes a representation of the physical and the biogeochemical (carbon cycle, aerosols, chemistry...) processes at the global scale, for the atmosphere, land surface, ocean and sea-ice. The IPSL-CM6 climate model will be used to perform the CMIP6 core experiments as well as a wide range of experiments from various Model Intercomparison Projects (MIPs) such as AerChemMIP, CFMIP, DCPP, GeoMIP, OMIP, PMIP, RFMIP, ScenarioMIP, etc. These climate simulations need to be conducted with a high degree of rigour on the national supercomputing centre. Special attention has to be paid to the traceability of the experiments from the forcing datasets to the climate model data Description of work: The main objective of the proposed post is to contribute to the setting, monitoring and data handling of the CMIP6 climate simulations. The job holder will first learn about the model and HPC environment, before applying his/her knowledge to a number of climate simulations that have to be carefully prepared, launched, monitored and quality assured. He/she will contribute to documenting the climate simulations. Depending on the candidate’s expertise and former experience, he/she will have the opportunity to further develop monitoring and supervising tools or visualisation tools that are already in place. Diploma and competences: The candidate needs an engineer’s degree, an equivalent Master’s degree or a PhD. The candidate should have a very good knowledge in computer science (unix/linux, python, shell programming, Fortran programming) and some experience with High Performance Computing environment. The candidate needs to demonstrate a high degree of scientific rigor. He/she should be able to work in English language and in a collaborative environment. Knowledge in climate system modelling, netcdf data handling, database and visualization tools would be significant advantages. Knowledge of the French language is an asset. Supervision team: The work will be conducted at IPSL under the main supervision of O. Boucher in close connection with the scientists in charge of the MIPs at IPSL and the team of engineers of the IPSL Climate Modelling Centre. Duration and salary: The engineer will be recruited at the “Ingénieur d’étude” or “Ingénieur de recherche” grade depending on his/her diploma. The contract will be initially for 12 months with a salary that depends on diploma and experience. This includes social services and health insurance. Depending on the competences of the job holder, an extension may be possible for 6 or 12 months. Contact for applications: Applications should include a CV, a statement of interest and the names of at least one reference including their e-mail addresses and telephone numbers. Applications should be submitted by e-mail to O. Boucher (<firstname.lastname@example.org>).
