Are you an ambitious software developer looking for your next challenge?  Do you have a background in high performance scientific computing?  Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research intensive Universities?

The Centre of Excellence for Modelling the Atmosphere and Climate (CEMAC) within the Institute for Climate and Atmospheric Science (ICAS) at University of Leeds seeks to appoint a Software Development Scientist, jointly with the National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS) and the Met Office-NERC Joint Weather and Climate Research Programme. CEMAC has been established within ICAS to substantially enhance the institute’s research, teaching, impact and outreach capabilities, related to computer modelling, data analysis and visualisation. 

A significant part of the role will be carrying out development of the Met Office’s flagship Unified Model system, contributing to progressing scientific understanding of a large range of issues from regional weather processes, to global climate and Earth system interactions. You will have the opportunity to work on a wide variety of scientific codes and problems and to contribute to scientific development of the research strategy of the ICAS research community.

You will have a first degree (Bachelor’s or equivalent qualification) in an appropriate technical, scientific, or engineering discipline, ideally with a strong software engineering component. You will also have a proven track record of developing and maintaining codes to study complex, cutting edge scientific problems, ideally in the physical sciences.
