Employment Announcements

Assists in the development, maintenance, testing, documentation, and enhancement of software components in support of scientific activities jointly within the multi-agency Joint Center for Satellite Data Assimilation (JCSDA) and NCAR’s Mesoscale and Microscale Meteorology (MMM) Laboratory. Work will focus on the development of a new software testing framework in support of the community data assimilation and modeling systems. Work may also be related to large existing community software packages such as the data assimilation system developed under the Joint Effort for Data assimilation Integration (JEDI), the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) Model, or the Model for Prediction Across Scales (MPAS).


June 8, 2018 or until a sufficient number of applications have been received.

NOAA/GFDL is seeking a computational oceanographer, to assist in ocean model development and research into the ocean's role in the earth system using numerical simulations of global ocean-circulation in earth-system models.

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

This is a full-time, one-year term position with the possibility of renewal for a maximum term of three years. This position will be posted until May 14, 2018 or until a sufficient number of applications have been received. 

Relocation assistance is available for this position.

UCAR/NCAR will sponsor a work visa to fill this position.


June 1, 2018

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. 

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.
