*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, http://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.

The selected candidate will work with SCRiM project teams and affiliated
researchers to develop modeling, analysis, visualization, decision support,
and educational tools. Desired areas of expertise include developing and
running Earth system models and/or their components, geophysical data
visualization, statistical analysis of large datasets, optimization
techniques, and development of web-based graphical user interfaces. The
primary languages used by SCRiM researchers are Python, R, C/C++, and
Fortan, and significant experience with data analysis in one or more of
these languages is essential. Experience SCRiM research topics, working in
high- performance computing environments, and with additional relevant
languages such as Julia, Matlab, NCL, Javascript, and PHP is also
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 portal for downscaled climate data,
development of a decision support tool for coastal flood risk management,
porting and modification of climate models for use on SCRiM
cyberinfrastructure, and coupling of model components (originally developed
for different disciplinary domains) for multi-objective trade-off analyses
in a high-performance computational environment.

The successful candidate should have a Master’s degree in a relevant field
(Ph.D. preferred) and a demonstrated record of achievement in scientific
computing. The position is available immediately and will remain open until
filled. Initial appointment will be for a period of one year, with
excellent possibility of renewal for one or more additional years.
