*Scientific Programmer*Software Development for Climate Risk Management
Earth and Environmental Systems Institute
The Pennsylvania State University, University Park Campus
A Scientific Programmer position is available in the Earth and
Environmental Systems Institute at the Pennsylvania State University.
Successful candidates will become part of an interdisciplinary research
network on Sustainable Climate Risk Management (SCRiM, scrimhub.org).
Centered at Penn State and linking 18 universities and five research
institutions in six nations, SCRiM addresses the question: *What are
sustainable, scientifically sound, technologically feasible, economically
efficient, and ethically defensible climate-risk management strategies?*
SCRiM catalyzes fundamental, mission-oriented, and transdisciplinary
research to characterize climate risks and trade-offs associated with risk
management instruments such as mitigation, adaptation, and geoengineering.
The network provides unique opportunities for research, education,
outreach, decision support, and professional development. SCRiM postdocs
enjoy ample opportunities for transdisciplinary research collaboration as
well as professional mentoring by a team of experts in relevant disciplines.
The selected candidate will work with SCRiM project teams to develop
modeling, analysis, visualization, decision support, and educational tools.
Desired areas of expertise include models of Earth system components,
geophysical data visualization, statistical analysis of large datasets,
optimization techniques, and development of web-based graphical user
interfaces. The primary common language used within SCRiM is R but
experience with additional languages such as Fortran, C/C++, Julia, Matlab,
NCL, and/or Python would also be highly desirable. Initial projects may
include (but are not limited to) development of a graphical user interface
for a simple integrated assessment model, development of a data
visualization portal for downscaled climate data, and coupling of model
components (originally developed for different disciplinary domains) for
multi- objective trade-off analyses in a high-performance computational
This opportunity is available either as a Scientific Programmer / Research
Assistant position or as a Postdoctoral Research Associate. To apply, visit
