The Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES), a partnership of NOAA and the University of Colorado Boulder, is seeking a research scientist with experience in the development and maintenance of large-scale numerical models to work in the NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC). The scientist will be responsible for assisting with validation efforts and product development for the operational Geospace Model, a global Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) model of Earth’s magnetosphere, which uses components of University of Michigan’s Space Weather Modeling Framework (SWMF) to predict conditions in Earth’s near-space environment and on Earth’s surface. The successful candidate will undertake extensive efforts to validate Geospace model results and employ such results in developing actionable products to assist space weather forecasters and customers in their decision making process. The position is located in Boulder, Colorado. Salary will be commensurate withexperience.
