Job title: Associate scientist in Ocean and Cryosphere Division at GFDL

*Where You Will Work:*

Located in Boulder, Colorado, UCAR Community Programs (UCP) offers a 
suite of innovative resources, tools, and services for the atmospheric 
and Earth science community.  UCP was created in 1992 to manage a number 
of unique programs requested by the UCAR community.

This position will be located at the NOAA Geophysical Fluid Dynamics 
Laboratory (GFDL) in Princeton, NJ.

NOAA/GFDL studies the earth system primarily using numerical models. It 
is a mission-oriented laboratory with a wide range of objectives 
including model development and furthering the scientific understanding 
of the earth system.

*What You Will Do:*

The Associate Scientist will work within the Ocean and Cryosphere 
Division of the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) to assist 
in the development and use of ocean and ice models for research into the 
role of the ocean and cryosphere in the earth system.

* Responsibilities:*

  * Executing and managing production numerical simulations using GFDL
    ocean/ice and coupled earth system models to fulfill the research
    and model development plans within the ocean-cryosphere division
  * Quality control of GFDL ocean/ice and coupled earth system model
    output for dissemination to public data storage sites using
    available standard tools to support the model/data sharing effort
    for scientists within the ocean-cryosphere division
  * Collaborate in designing, collecting, compiling, processing,
    analyzing and interpreting simulated ocean data from research
    activities at GFDL using realistic global ocean and coupled earth
    system models to understand the role of the ocean and cryosphere in
    the earth system
  * Technical support for the ocean and cryosphere models for scientists
    within the oceans-cryosphere division, the broader GFDL community,
    and external collaborators and assist in analyzing numerical model
    output using a variety of tools including Python.
