Positions available in chemical data assimilation (GCHP adjoint) development and model support

University of Colorado, Boulder, USA
Closing date: not specified

The University of Colorado offers positions working on GEOS-Chem adjoint model development and support. The first is specifically aimed at development of the GCHP adjoint, in close collaboration with NASA JPL. The second is a more generic position for adjoint code support at CU Boulder. Candidates from multiple levels of experience will be considered for each. Further, the possibility for a single person to fill both roles, or some mix of responsibilities from each, will also be considered, based on qualifications, experience, and interest. CU Boulder is particularly interested in students or postdocs with keen interest in the computational and programming challenges of modeling.

POSITION 1:
Applicants are sought to join a collaborative research project between the University of Colorado in Boulder and NASA JPL in Pasadena, CA to advance the state-of-the-art in high resolution global inverse modeling. The applicant will have the opportunity to pursue research at both locations, engaging with scientists in both air quality and the carbon cycle. Desired qualifications include experience with chemical transport or air quality models, particularly GEOS-Chem, adjoint modeling and data assimilation. The project consists of development of the GEOS-Chem High Performance adjoint model for offline tracers (CO2 and aerosol dust), and will thus require a mix software development, optimization for high performance computing environments, and atmospheric modeling. The applicant will be expected to publish peer-reviewed journal articles and effectively communicate with both scientists and environmental policy decision-makers. Applicants from MS students to postdoctoral scholars will be considered, with compensation based on experience. The position will begin as soon as possible and is for one year, with the possibility to renew. Reviews will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. To submit an application, please contact Prof. Daven Henze via email (daven.henze@colorado.edu); include a CV, statement of research interests, and contacts for recommendations. The University of Colorado at Boulder is committed to diversity and equality in education and employment.

POSITION 2:
Applicants are sought for the position of adjoint model code support specialist at the University of Colorado Boulder. Desired qualifications include experience with chemical transport or air quality models, scientific programming, managing large coding projects with git, and unix/linux system admin. Additional experience explicitly with adjoint modeling, GEOS-Chem, and data assimilation is a plus. The applicant will be expected to provide coding support to a wide user base, effectively communicate with scientists and model users, and participate in training of new adjoint model users. Applicants from the BS to postdoctoral level will be considered, with compensation based on experience, and will have the opportunity to additionally pursue research applications within the field of inverse modeling and data assimilation. The position will begin as soon as possible and is for one year, with the possibility to renew. Reviews will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. To submit an application, please contact Prof. Daven Henze via email (daven.henze@colorado.edu); include a CV, statement of research interests, and contacts for recommendations.
