The Climate and Scientific Computing group in the Department of Earth System Science at UC Irvine (www.ess.uci.edu/~zender) will fill a full-time Specialist position with a computational data scientist enthusiastic to apply advanced computing techniques to global environmental problems. We develop software to analyze in situ, satellite-retrieved, and modeled geophysical data. The candidate will help: Design and implement modular data post-processing software in a C/Python/GitHub environment, maintain and extend geospatial features of the netCDF Operators (NCO, nco.sf.net). Science application areas include polar climatology from AWS data and sea-ice modeling, spatial regridding, and aerosol-induced light pollution.
BS degree, or equivalent experience, in computer science, atmospheric science, engineering, physics, mathematics, or a related discipline.
Strong skills in free-software C/C++/Python development in UNIX/Linux environments.
MS or PhD. Knowledge of atmospheric science, chemistry, oceanography or engineering. netCDF data analysis+visualization, geospatial tools (QGIS), OpenMP/MPI, Travis CI.
