The Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) in Boulder, Colorado is seeking a research scientist with programming experience to work in the NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory (ESRL)/Global Systems Division (GSD). The scientist will help enhance transition of innovations in Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) to NOAA’s operational production suite by supporting community scientists in using and developing global and regional configurations of NOAA’s Unified Forecast System, which uses the Finite Volume Cubed Sphere (FV3) dynamical core. The scientist will also work on NWP development projects of ESRL/GSD. The work will be conducted in collaboration with other scientists in ESRL/GSD, and involve collaborations with the Developmental Testbed Center, Global Model Test Bed and other groups at NOAA Laboratories, NCAR, NCEP and the scientific community.
