An*ocean modeling Scientist*position with 12 month base salary support 
is open in theClimate and Global Dynamics (CGD) Laboratory 
<http://www2.cgd.ucar.edu/>of the National Center for Atmospheric 
Research (NCAR) in Boulder, Colorado. This position comes with 
associated software engineering and project scientist support, as well 
as a share of CGD administrative and computing resources. The specific 
responsibilities associated with the position are: to conduct original, 
independent and collaborative research in ocean model development with a 
particular focus on computational methods and interfacing resolved scale 
dynamics (ocean dynamical cores) with physical parameterizations across 
a range of resolutions; to lead and facilitate collaborative research on 
the incorporation of new ocean dynamical cores within theCommunity Earth 
System Model (CESM) <http://www.cesm.ucar.edu/>framework; and to 
communicate scientific results through both publications in scientific 
journals and presentations at national and international scientific 
meetings. These activities will address high-priority technical 
requirements and are to be coordinated with ocean modeling partners, the 
CESM Ocean Modeling Working Group (OMWG) and university contributors. 
The successful candidate will work in collaboration with newly hired 
Project Scientists and Software Engineers, and existing members of the 
Oceanography Section of CGD to further these partnerships.

The successful candidate also will be expected to contribute to the CGD 
mission "To discover the key processes in each component of the Earth's 
climate system and to understand the interactions among them; to 
represent this knowledge in community models that effectively utilize 
computing advances; and to apply these models and observations to 
scientific problems of societal relevance." To fulfill this mission, CGD 
encourages and supports a triad of interdependent activities: 
fundamental research into atmospheric and climate processes, community 
model development, and the application of these models to research the 
earth's climate system. CGD is the host center of the CESM, and 
virtually all its activities and resources directly or indirectly 
support CESM, either in the immediate or longer term. CGD scientists do 
have the opportunity to develop an independent research program, within 
the broad scope of these expectations and of the NCAR and CGD strategic 
plans. Such research could be either collaborative or independent, but 
should take advantage of and contribute to NCAR as a national center.

The position will be filled either at the Scientist I, or Scientist II 
level, depending on experience and qualifications. NCAR Scientist I, 
Scientist II, Scientist III and Senior Scientist positions are roughly 
equivalent to university tenure track ranks of Assistant Professor, 
Associate Professor, Associate Professor with tenure and full Professor, 
respectively. Promotion from either Scientist I, or II, is expected 
sometime within a 5 year term, pending a successful review of scientific 
productivity and innovation, contributions to CGD and NCAR programs, 
community service, and emerging scientific leadership.

*Information for Applicants:*To apply for this position, visit UCAR 
Human Resources 
A Ph.D or equivalent experience in physical oceanography or related 
science or engineering is required. Applicants are requested to supply a 
cover letter, a statement of research interests and how they might 
contribute to the CGD mission and strategic plan, a current CV and the 
names of four potential references. Consideration of applications will 
begin*Monday, November 14*.

CGD is a laboratory of NCAR, a Federally Funded Research and Development 
Center (FFRDC) of the National Science Foundation. NCAR is an 
Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity Employer. Women and minorities are 
encouraged to apply. Further information about NCAR, CGD, the CGD 
Strategic Plan, and CESM can be found at (http://www2.cgd.ucar.edu
