RESEARCH SCIENTIST IN HIGH RESOLUTION GLOBAL CLIMATE MODELLING

National Centre for Atmospheric Science, Department of Meteorology, University of Reading

 

Job Reference: SRF17618

Closing Date: 1st May 2017

Salary: £29,301 to £38,183 per annum

Start Date:  as soon as possible

Full Time, Fixed Term for up to 3 years

Interview Date: TBC

Apply online:  https://jobs.reading.ac.uk/displayjob.aspx?jobid=721

 

We seek a motivated and ambitious research scientist in computational climate science to join the National Centre for Atmospheric Science’s High Resolution Climate Modelling (HRCM) group. The mission of the HRCM group is to play a leading role internationally in advancing the frontiers of global high resolution modelling, and to advance the application of this science to address societal needs.  The scientific focus is understanding the role of scale interactions in the atmosphere and climate system, including high impact weather. The appointed scientist will contribute to all aspects of the group’s activities, with a particular focus on the international HighResMIP activities that form part of CMIP6. The primary phenomenological focus is on convective organisation: from mesoscale convective systems to tropical and extratropical cyclones, their genesis, propagation and interaction with the large-scale flow and atmospheric waves.

 

You will have:

  • Knowledge of, or evidence of a serious interest in, atmospheric dynamics and atmospheric physics.
  • Understanding of physical processes relating to weather and climate.
  • Experience in numerical modelling, preferably in a High-Performance Computing (HPC) environment.
  • Experience in the analysis of Large Data
  • Excellent computational and programming skills, preferably including FORTRAN (90, 95), Python and UNIX/Linux shell scripting; familiarity with data standards (e.g. NetCDF4, HDF5, GRIB2)
  • First degree in a scientific or mathematical discipline
  • Strong communication skills.

LAND SURFACE PROCESSES COMPUTATIONAL SCIENTIST

National Centre for Atmospheric Science, Geography & Environmental Science/Meteorology, University of Reading

 

Job Reference: JTR00119

Closing Date: 1st May 2017

Salary: £29,301 to £38,183 per annum

Start Date:  as soon as possible

Full Time, Fixed Term for up to 3 years

Interview Date: TBC

Apply online:  https://jobs.reading.ac.uk/displayjob.aspx?jobid=720

 

We seek a motivated and ambitious computational scientist to join the University of Reading’s Land Surface Processes (LSP) team. The post holder will support the University’s LSP programme in all aspects of the modelling workflow, improving the overall technical and scientific performance of land surface models such as JULES, CLM and C-Tessel, including code portability, scalability, data management and analysis, as well as the associated workflow infrastructure. Scientists working in this area utilise and develop world-leading numerical models of the land surface, as used in Global Climate models, for example for IPCC studies, using advanced workstations, cloud computing, as well as the world’s most powerful supercomputers. It is expected that the post holder will enable innovative experimental campaigns, state-of-the-art model intercomparison studies, and will benefit from co-authorship of peer-reviewed papers.

 

You will have:

  • Experience of working with complex environmental simulation systems and their underlying infrastructure, including code management and documentation for large collaborative groups
  • Excellent computational and programming skills including FORTRAN (90, 95), Python and UNIX/Linux shell scripting
  • Experience of working with Large Data, including data standards (e.g. NetCDF4, HDF5, GRIB2)
  • Experience of developing and debugging parallel codes, including codes for data analysis
  • Knowledge of High Performance Computing (HPC), parallel programming and numerical modelling
  • First degree in a computational or scientific discipline
  • Strong analytic and communication skills.

We seek a motivated and ambitious computational scientist to join the National Centre for Atmospheric Science’s Computational Modelling Support (CMS) team. The post holder will support the NCAS high resolution and earth system modelling programmes in all aspects of the climate model workflow, improving the overall performance of the Unified Model, including portability, scalability, data handling and analysis, as well as the associated workflow infrastructure. This activity supports the Joint-Weather and Climate Programme’s High-Resolution Climate Modelling theme (HRCM), delivering world leading numerical models of the atmosphere and ocean, using the world’s most powerful supercomputers. The HRCM mission is to play a leading role internationally in advancing the frontiers of global high resolution modelling, and to advance the application of this science to address societal needs.  HRCM and CMS currently engage internationally in the co-design of modelling systems that will be able to exploit exascale supercomputing.

 

You will have:

  • Excellent computational and programming skills including FORTRAN, UNIX, Python and Scripting
  • Experience of working with large, complex software systems
  • Knowledge of High Performance Computing (HPC) and numerical modelling
