NCAR Scientist position: Ocean modeling

An ocean modeling Scientist position with 12 month base salary support is open in the Climate and Global Dynamics (CGD) Laboratory of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, Colorado. This position comes with associated software engineering and project scientist support, as well as a share of CGD administrative and computing resources. The specific responsibilities associated with the position are: to conduct original, independent and collaborative research in ocean model development with a particular focus on computational methods and interfacing resolved scale dynamics (ocean dynamical cores) with physical parameterizations across a range of resolutions; to lead and facilitate collaborative research on the incorporation of new ocean dynamical cores within the Community Earth System Model (CESM) framework; and to communicate scientific results through both publications in scientific journals and presentations at national and international scientific meetings. These activities will address high-priority technical requirements and are to be coordinated with ocean modeling partners, the CESM Ocean Modeling Working Group (OMWG) and university contributors. The successful candidate will work in collaboration with newly hired Project Scientists and Software Engineers, and existing members of the Oceanography Section of CGD to further these partnerships.
