We have a great opportunity in our Forecast Research and Development team for someone enthusiastic about forecasting and statistical analysis.  

In the role of either Research Scientist or Meteorological Developer (depending on your expertise) you will be involved in prototyping and testing new computer weather forecasting systems. You could be working on models of the atmosphere, advanced statistical and machine learning methods, and development of operational systems. The role needs to support the whole range from idea implementation in prototypes via high-quality software development to agile support of customer requests and support of operations. 

To join us, ideally you will have an honours degree or above in mathematics or physics, or demonstrated experience in developing robust 24/7 modelling systems, or a strong computer science background combined with a meteorological degree. 

For either position (Research Scientist or Meteorological Developer) knowledge of meteorology is essential.  WRF modeling and/or statistical techniques for forecasting would be beneficial, along with a high level of knowledge about Linux OS, Amazon Web Services, or experience with running operational forecasting systems. And, if you are a good communicator of scientific and mathematical concepts to non-scientific people, then we want to hear from you! 

Why join us? We enjoy achieving, we appreciate creativity and we recognise everyone’s unique skills and qualities.   You’ll be joining a global business passionate about connecting the science of weather to deliver products and services that really make a difference for our customers and members of the public. 

Applications close: Friday 11 November 2016 (NZ local time)
