Employment Announcements

This position will focus on development of tidal datum transformations for NOAA’s VDatum vertical datum transformation project. NOAA has developed a new methodology to blend together datums from tide model results and tide gauge observations that improves the quality of tidal datum transformations. This new method also calculates the spatially varying uncertainty in the blended tidal datum fields. The person hired for this position will work with NOAA scientists on applying this new methodology to U.S. coastal regions where VDatum is available. The person will be responsible for running ADCIRC tide model simulations on NOAA’s High Performance Computers to generate tidal datum predictions. Existing Matlab and Fortran programs will then be used to compute the blended tidal datum product and its associated spatially-varying uncertainty. The candidate will work with the VDatum team of scientists and prepare these tidal datum results for use in VDatum software applications.


October 3, 2018 or until a sufficient number of applicants have been received. Thereafter, applications will be reviewed on an as-needed basis.

This position supports the NOAA Integrated Dissemination Program (IDP), nowCOAST and Ridge II projects.

Maintain and apply upgrades to IDP-GIS’s applications in the NOAA Integrated Dissemination Program (IDP) hosting facilities in College Park, MD and Boulder, CO. This will involve modification of existing (and development of new) Python/shell scripts and workflows used for automating application deployment, testing, and system monitoring tasks. Design, develop, test, and implement new data processing, system monitoring, and quality assurance software.

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.


This position will be posted until October 1, 2018 or until a sufficient number of applications have been received.

The Joint Center for Satellite Data Assimilation (JCSDA) mission is to improve and accelerate the uses of research and operational satellite data in numerical weather and climate prediction models among its partner agencies - NASA, NOAA, and the DoD. The work is accomplished through well-defined joint projects, approved by the Management Oversight Board (MOB). Each project is managed by a subject matter expert, and is overseen by an Executive Team (ET) consisting of the Director, Associate Directors (one from each partner), and the Chief Administrative Officer (CAO).  

The central role of the Executive Officer is to provide effective communication and coordination between the science Project Leads and the Executive Team (primarily through the Director and the CAO), to ensure that projects achieve their objectives effectively and on schedule, and with the ET sufficiently well-informed of the status of each project to provide guidance and assistance to keep them on track and to respond to new opportunities and challenges as appropriate.
