The Division for Oceanography and Marine Meteorology under the Research and Development Department of the Norwegian Meteorological Institute in Bergen advertises a two-year position as scientist/developer with the possibility of a further extension and/or conversion to a permanent position.
The main task of the division is the continuing development of the maritime forecast products issued by the Norwegian Meteorological Institute (MET Norway). This is achieved through research on wind-generated surface waves and boundary layer meteorology as well as further development of numerical models of the ocean and ocean waves, and maritime trajectory models.
Wave models take central stage in maritime forecasting, and increasingly also as the intermediary in modelling the air-sea interaction. Coupled ocean, sea ice, wave and atmosphere modelling can potentially improve our forecasts for the Arctic region and Norwegian waters. MET Norway has ambitions to couple the different earth system components in the coming years. Wave models are also essential for the investigation of changes to the marine climate, and we are currently involved in several large projects aimed at mapping the present and future wave and wind climate.
The successful candidate will work on the development of wave models and coupling of wave models to ocean and atmosphere models as well as dissemination of model data for internal and external users. Skill in programming and experience with numerical modelling on Linux/UNIX high-performance computers is essential and shall be documented.
The position will offer exciting challenges in a professional, operational community. The pace can be high, and collaboration internally, on a national level and internationally is the norm. Candidates should have experience from scientific collaboration on national and international level.
Qualifications and experience:
It is a human relations objective that the staff should reflect the population composition of Norway in general with regard to gender and cultural diversity.
