The Joint Institute for the Study of the Atmosphere and Ocean is seeking
applicants for a one year positon as research scientist working in the
general area of coastal ocean prediction. The successful applicant will
support research on and implantation of a prediction system for the NOAA
Integrated Ecosystem Assessment (IEA) for the California Current System
ecosystems as part of the JISAO Seasonal Coastal Ocean Prediction of the
Ecosystem (J-SCOPE) project.

JISAO research scientists have developed the JISAO Seasonal Coastal Ocean
Prediction of the Ecosystem (J-SCOPE) project. J-SCOPE provides predictions
of ocean conditions in the coastal region of the Pacific Northwest six to
nine months into the future. Predicted quantities include temperature,
salinity, dissolved oxygen, and chlorophyll concentrations. Forecasts are
available to the public for use by the shellfish and fishing industries, as
well as the broader research community. J-SCOPE scientists are now updating
the experimental forecasts regularly during the year, providing on-going
evaluations of forecast accuracy, and investigating improved forecasting

The successful applicant will manage, as part of the J-SCOPE team,
production of the model climatology and forecasts. Applicants must have at
minimum a M. Sc. degree in a relevant discipline and preference will be
given to applicants who have experience with ROMS (Regional Ocean Modeling
System) based models and knowledge of Unix systems. The incumbent will work
with the existing team of researchers on the presentation of the results
for the NANOOS website, peer-reviewed journal articles, and scientific

The principal duties of the successful applicant will be to:

·      Streamline the process of adapting the fields from the large-scale
forecast model (CFSv2) that are required to force the ocean forecasting

·      Update the model forecasts on a quarterly basis using the updated
CFSv2 model output

·      Produce a model climatology for reference and use that climatology
for visualizing model output.

·      Develop code to produce figures and movies of the output that can be
used to disseminate output to the user community and enhance public access
