Candidates with (1) demonstrated interests and/or background in translating science to an operational forecast environment and (2) demonstrated programming skill and data set management are encouraged to apply.
The candidate should hold a MS or Ph.D in atmospheric sciences or hydrology with knowledge and/or experience in hydrologic applications of climate predictions, hydrologic forecast operations, or hydrologic or land surface modeling. Experience with NWS river forecasts and National Centers for Environmental Prediction’s (NCEP) CFS and GFS forecasts would be a plus. Proficiency with UNIX/LINUX shell scripts and FORTRAN is mandatory. Other skills in GrADS and HTML, and oral and written communication skills are also required.
The position is located at the National Center for Weather and Climate Prediction, 5830 University Research Court, College Park, MD.
