The Alfred Wegener Institute Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI) is a member of the Helmholtz Association (HGF) and funded by federal and state government. AWI focuses on polar and marine research in a variety of disciplines such as biology, oceanography, geology, geochemistry and geophysics, thus allowing multidisciplinary approaches to scientific goals.
Software engineer (Python): Scalable diagnostics for digital twins of the climate system (m/f/d)
The Climate Dynamics section at the Alfred Wegener Institute Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI) in Bremerhaven, Germany, invites applications for a software engineer (Python/Bash/DevOps) for the development of scalable diagnostics and evaluation tools in support of digital twins of the climate system.
You will work with leading European climate modellers, computing scientists and software engineers on developing digital twins of the climate system in support of adaptation to climate change. The Climate Adaptation Digital Twins system harnesses two kilometre-scale Earth-system models (ESMs) to Europe's most performant computing high-performance computing systems.
You will be part of the team responsible for development of data analysis framework, aimed at km-scale climate simulations. Data analytics tasks, that you will help to design and develop, should work on Tier 1 European HPC systems (e.g., LUMI - the first pre-exascale supercomputer of the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking), process petabyte-scale data, should be scalable, portable and fault tolerant.
Moreover, having one or several of the following skills would be a distinct advantage:
This is a full-time position, limited to 20 month. It is advertised subject to approval of funding and with the possibility of extension (depending on continued funding). It is also suitable for part-time employment. The salary will be paid in accordance with the Collective Agreement for the Public Service of the Federation (Tarifvertrag des öffentlichen Dienstes, TVöD Bund), up to salary level 13. The place of employment will be Bremerhaven.
