Atmospheric Scientific Programmer
CSIRO has funded a 10 year, 15 person project to develop the national capability in multi-year to decadal climate forecasting. The project will support the fundamental advancement of ocean and atmosphere dynamics, novel ways to assimilate ocean and atmosphere data, development of an ensemble climate pre diction system and the applications of the climate forecasts for key stakeholders. CSIRO also has an ongoing effort to deliver future climate change and earth system projections.
Fundamental to the development and application of climate models at CSIRO is the need for technical expertise in the use of the atmospheric component of our climate models. As the Scientific Programmer, you will provide atmospheric modelling support for the Decadal Climate Forecasting Project (Climate Analysis Forecast Ensemble (CAFE) system) and other climate and earth system modelling projects that use the ACCESS model. The focus would primarily be on the atmospheric model (currently GFDL-AM2 in CAFE and the UK Met Office Unified Model in ACCESS) including its interaction with the land surface model and managing the workflows required to use our models. While the role is mostly technical, some background or interest in atmospheric science would be desirable.
