InternationalNo, only national applications will be considered
Closure DateSunday, March 31, 2024
The Space Science Division of the US Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) in Washington, 
DC seeks an early-to-mid career scientist to join an in-place team developing 
whole-atmosphere versions of Navy weather prediction models extending to 500 km 
altitude. We seek a scientist to test and improve these state-of-the-science 
numerical models on high-performance computers (HPCs), to analyze their output, and 
to use the resulting insights to target code changes or additions that continuously 
improve their skill and efficiency. An ability and willingness to work within a 
team environment to achieve collective goals and assigned milestones are needed. A 
Ph.D. or M. Sc. in atmospheric science, computational fluid dynamics, physics, 
applied mathematics, meteorology, aeronomy, or a related discipline, is desired. 
Other useful skill sets or interests for this position include:

•	Knowledge of or interest in atmospheric models, particularly those 
extending into the middle and upper atmospheres, or related computational fluid 
dynamics codes, including making changes to and debugging such codes on 
multiprocessor HPC architectures.
•	Demonstrated skill with high-level programming languages (e.g., MPI 
Fortran, C++, Java) and visualization/analysis software such as python, IDL or 
•	Experience or interest in running multiprocessor code on massively parallel 
•	Experience working with large atmospheric data sets generated by models 
(e.g., HDF5).
