TitleProject Scientist in Oceanic Modeling
CategoryJob in Industry
EmployerUCLA, Dept of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences
LocationUnited States, California, Los Angeles
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure Date* None *
We are looking for a person who is competent in, and has a passion for,
high-performance scientific computing, in particular for computational fluid
dynamics. Knowledge of distributed parallel computing is essential. The
successful candidate will work together with specialists in oceanic computer
modeling to further the development of UCLA Regional Oceanic Modeling System
(ROMS), which is an algorithmically sophisticated, well-developed code that is
widely used for high-resolution, nested-grid, turbulent flows in various
geographically accurate configurations, both for scientific discovery and for
simulated reality. He/she will implement new algorithms into the existing code
base to extend the functionality and will be responsible for the continuing
maintenance and evolution of the code, in coordination with other research
scientists in the modeling group. Depending on background and interests, there
will be opportunities for further algorithmic development and implementation of
additional physical processes. The ROMS code is written in Fortran, so a prior
knowledge of it is advantageous, but not required. Desirable skills are
proficiency in working in an Linux environment; knowledge of high-performance
scientific computing in either computational fluid mechanics or a related field;
experience with distributed-memory, parallel computing; ability to work with
oceanic scientists on code development; good interpersonal skills; knowledge of
other programming languages (e.g., C or C++, Python, Julia). The initial
appointment is full-time for one year with continuation with satisfactory
progress. The position is available immediately, and applications will be
considered until the position is filled. The University of California is an
Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. All qualified applicants will
