NWS Modeling Program Seeks Physical Scientists

  • August 14, 2019
  • Brief,Employment Opportunity
  • The scientists selected for these two positions will be engaged in a range of exciting and critical activities, with the ultimate goal of improving the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Weather Service (NWS) models and forecasts. This includes managing the development and implementation of advanced model capabilities needed for improved forecasting of weather, hurricanes, extended forecasts (beyond 8-10 days), air quality, severe weather, and coastal inundation and flooding. Improving these systems requires advancing the science, infrastructure and computational skill of the modeling system. The U.S. Department of Energy Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) Modeling Division collaborates with NOAA’s Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR) Office, the research community and other modeling centers, to enhance the flow of information and innovation between operations and research, and to partner on improving model system components and infrastructures such as data assimilation, validation, and verification.

    The application deadline is Monday, August 19, 2019.
