The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) welcomes
applications from recent graduates who have completed their most recent
degree within the last two years for a new whole-Earth magnetic modeling
scientist and steward federal hire in the Geomagnetism Group in Boulder,
Colorado. This position is located in NOAA, National Environmental
Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS), National Centers for
Environmental Information (NCEI), Oceanographic and Geophysical Science and
Services Division (OGSSD). The successful applicant will work directly with
the magnetic modeling team to support the needs of NOAA and NOAA’s partners
including the DOD/NGA (https://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/geomag/). The candidate’s
efforts will help ensure NOAA continues to create and steward high value
geomagnetic products and services that are used in critical magnetic
navigation applications for natural resource exploration and to protect
life and property. These products are widely leveraged by the international
operator and research communities, inspiring Research to Operations and
Operations to Research.

The Geomagnetism group works on a wide range of topics from global,
satellite-based geomagnetic field modeling to research into magnetic field
navigation, machine-learning based geomagnetic forecast, and the use of
crowdsourcing in geomagnetism. The successful candidate will work on
multiple projects and tasks such as analysing worldwide magnetic field data
collected by various platforms (e.g., satellites, ground stations,
aircrafts, ships, smartphones); supporting the development and improvement
of geomagnetic models, products, and services derived from such data; and
supporting transfer of geomagnetic field research into new products. These
activities will be well served by a strong background in quantitative Earth
science, physics, mathematics or related field and strong computational
skills (e.g. Python, C/C++, Fortran, Matlab) as the position is expected to
involve significant programming.

This position is being advertised under the Pathways Program for recent
graduates and is targeted at current or recent graduate students. A FAQ
about Pathways is linked below. This civil servant position has significant
potential for efficient advancement to higher level positions. *All
interested eligible persons are welcome to apply using the usajobs.gov
<http://usajobs.gov/> URLs below. If you have any questions, please contact
Laurel.Rachmeler at NOAA.gov. The position 08/26/2021 to 09/09/2021.*

A side note:
I strongly suggest applicants do some research on USAJOBS to understand how
it differs from a more traditional job application process, and how to
tailor their application to the system.  Here is a link
<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tCZMKMkAeqo> to a NOAA recording  about
navigating USAJOBS, hopefully you can view it outside NOAA if you share it
with colleagues. You can also check out this Working in Government link
<https://www.usajobs.gov/Help/working-in-government/> that has additional
information that might be beneficial.
