    Applications Program (NSAP)

    Relocation benefits not provided

    UCAR/NCAR will not sponsor a work visa to fill this position.  Must
    be a U.S. person, with ability to work on ITAR material.



    This part-time position involves working with NCAR/RAL/NSAP
    scientists in a variety of activities related to the modeling of
    transport and dispersion and coupled applications with numerical
    weather prediction and climate downscaling models.



      * Develop and write technical documentation for a pre-existing
        source term estimation (STE) system for atmospheric transport
        and dispersion (ATD) of hazardous airborne material.
      * The candidate will be responsible for learning details of the
        model code, including a working understanding of the scientific
        and mathematical basis for the model, and leading the effort in
        writing the technical documentation.
      * Further model development tasks (related to STE and ATD) will
        likely follow on.



    *Education and Experience:*

      * B.S. degree in atmospheric science, physical science, or
        engineering science or an equivalent combination of education
        and experience.
      * Two to three years’ experience in atmospheric modeling and
        dispersion modeling.
      * M.S. degree in atmospheric science, physical science, or
        engineering science highly desired but not required.

    *Knowledge, Skills and Abilities:*

      * Understanding of source term estimation methods and atmospheric
        transport and dispersion models.
      * Demonstrated skill using atmospheric transport and dispersion
        models (i.e., SCIPUFF, HYSPLIT, WRF LES passive tracers).
      * Skill in scientific programming, including FORTRAN, Octave,
        Matlab, and scripting.
      * Demonstrated skill in writing technical documents.
      * Ability to prioritize, organize, and follow through on tasks.

    *Decision Making and Problem Solving:*

      * In close consultation with research team, candidate helps define
        the specific research tasks to be conducted as part of the project.
      * Solves problems that may arise in the course of completing
        research plan.  Works independently to solve these problems.
      * Establishes schedules to meet deadlines as needed by supervisor.
      * Obtains guidance when she/he cannot make a decision or solve a
        problem independently.
