Employment Announcements

The Weather and Climate Dynamics division at the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory in Princeton, NJ, is hiring a visiting scientist to contribute to the continued development of the GFDL fvGFS and SPEAR models at convection-permitting (< 25 km) to convection-resolving (1-4 km) scales, on nowcast to S2S scales and beyond. The qualified candidate will have a background in atmospheric sciences with experience in using numerical models for weather, seasonal or sub-seasonal scale simulations: examples include but are not limited to severe local storms, tropical cyclones, MJO, or intense rain, wind, ice, or snow events. The qualified candidate should have substantial experience configuring, running, and evaluating numerical models (idealized or comprehensive) for these phenomena.


This position will be posted until a sufficient number of applications have been received.

The position functions as a mid-level Linux system and network administrator for the Office of Water Prediction (OWP). The position is located at the OWP office in Chanhassen, Minnesota. The OWP's Information System (IS) consists of a network of mobile devices, office systems, server compute/processing resources, and public web services. The IS resources are distributed among multiple geographically separate OWP data centers.

Location: Chanhassen, Minnesota


This position will be posted until 4 pm on September 21, 2018 or until a sufficient number of applications have been received. Thereafter, applications will be reviewed on an as-needed basis.

This position will lead and oversee the development new code and/or optimization of existing storm surge and wave modeling code for the purposes of achieving optimal performance to meet operational runtime requirements.  This position will work closely with the Federal lead of the storm surge program at NHC and numerical modeling experts within NCEP to recommend the operational readiness of new code for operational implementation within NCEP’s supercomputing environment.  Works closely with system engineers and technical experts within NCEP’s Central Operations to establish timelines and objectives for the testing, evaluation, and eventual implementation of new modeling code onto NCEP’s supercomputing environment.

This position will lead and oversee the development and evaluation of new storm surge models or advances in existing storm surge models.  This position will independently prepare internal and external reports regarding model results and validation, and present findings at external meetings and conferences.  Will engage other scientists within NOAA and the hydrodynamic community regarding model research and development.  Makes recommendations to the Federal lead of the storm surge program regarding the operational readiness of new models or version of existing models.

This position supports the development and operations of NOAA/National Ocean Service real-time data dissemination services and applications used by mariners and coastal and emrgency managers.

This position involves the design, development, implementation, and operational support of automated data processing, software testing/deployment, and IT infrastructure management solutions including cloud-based approaches for NOS Office of Coast Survey's real-time data dissemination services.

Request for Proposals

Short-term Research Collaboration Opportunities at

NOAA ‘s National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP)

Managed by UCAR’s Cooperative Programs for the Advancement of Earth System Science (CPAESS)

We are seeking research project proposals from scientists in academia, government laboratories, non-profit and private sectors to interact with colleagues at NCEP.

NCEP delivers national and global weather, water, climate and space weather guidance, forecasts, warnings and analyses to a broad range of users and partners. These products and services respond to user needs to protect life and property, enhance the nation's economy, and support the nation's growing need for environmental information.


Applications are accepted at anytime, and are reviewed on a rolling basis.
