A scientific programmer position supervised by Zouhair Lachkar is available at the
Center for Prototype Climate Modeling, an interdisciplinary research unit at New
York University Abu Dhabi. The successful candidate will provide technical support
for a small team of scientists engaged in a broad effort to understand and model the
circulation and biogeochemical dynamics of the Indian Ocean. Activities will include:

the Regional Oceanic Modeling System (ROMS), ii) collecting, processing and
visualizing large scientific datasets and iii) developing and using innovative statistical
methods for analyzing data.

We encourage applications from candidates with a university degree in oceanography,
computer sciences or applied mathematics, preferably with a focus on geophysical
modeling. Experience with high-performance computing and ocean models like
ROMS is a big plus. We seek a candidate who works in a structured way with
analytical problem solving capability. The successful candidate is also expected to
have a good experience in scripting in Linux/Unix environment and code development
with Fortran, Matlab, Python or similar programs.

Appointments are offered for one year, renewable, contingent upon positive annual
