The Barcelona Supercomputing Center - Centro Nacional de Supercomputación (BSC-CNS) is the leading supercomputing center in Spain. It houses MareNostrum, one of the most powerful supercomputers in Europe, and is a hosting member of the PRACE European distributed supercomputing infrastructure. The mission of BSC is to research, develop and manage information technologies in order to facilitate scientific progress. BSC combines HPC service provision and R&D into both computer and computational science (life, earth and engineering sciences) under one roof, and currently has over 460 staff from 44 countries.
Context and Mission
The aim of the Earth System Services Group (ESS) within the Earth Sciences Department is to demonstrate the ongoing value of climate prediction services, atmospheric composition and weather forecasting to society and the economy. The group actively works in identifying user needs that partly guide research in the Department. The goal is to quantify the impact of weather, climate, aerosols and gaseous pollutants upon socio-economic sectors through the development of user-oriented services. This ensures the transfer of the technology developed and the adaptation to a rapidly changing environment.
The Earth System Services Group has an interdisciplinary approach closely collaborating with all research groups within the department (Climate predictions, Atmospheric compositions and Computational Earth Sciences) and support groups at the BSC (technology transfer, communications, visualization, education and outreach).
The ESS group is looking for a knowledge transfer officer from any nationality to carry out user-engagement tasks to understand user needs and foster the creation of tailored services to bridge the gap between science and its end users in key sectors of society (energy, agriculture and urban development). The candidate will be part of EU funded projects in the cutting-edge area of climate services for renewable energies, agriculture and insurance. Successful candidates will benefit from expert training and BSC-CNS staff benefits: international multidisciplinary scientific environment and advanced applied research training.
We encourage applications from highly motivated candidates with experience on environmental economics to foster the intersection of economics, environmental science and services. Special interest in user-engagement processes and knowledge and technology transfer will be also valued.
Knowledge and Professional Experience
All applications must include: A motivation letter - A full CV including contact details
