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) has been established within the Institute for Climate and Atmospheric Science (ICAS) to substantially enhance the institute’s research, teaching, impact and outreach capabilities, related to computer modelling, data analysis and visualisation. We seek to appoint a Software Development Scientist within CEMAC, to work with ICAS scientists in scientific and technical development of a range of numerical models and scientific codes, as well as development of software for analysis and visualisation of model output and complex datasets. 

The role will include developing and maintaining several key modelling tools and analysis codes, contributing to progressing scientific understanding of a large range of issues from regional weather processes, to global climate, atmospheric pollution 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.
