SAIC is seeking a Scientific Applications Programmer in College Park, MD to support the National Weather Service (NWS). Note: This Hybrid role allows for 1-2 days per week to work remotely.
The Scientific Applications Programmer will be working in the Environmental Modeling Center (EMC) as part of the National Weather Service (NWS) which is responsible for developing complex Earth system models together with its research partners. These numerical weather prediction (NWP) models are deployed in NWS operations to provide weather and seasonal forecast guidance at different timescales from hours to days to months. The NWP models range from global atmospheric models, limited-area (regional) high resolution convective scale atmospheric models, hurricane models, global ocean circulation models, cryospheric models, wave models, land surface models etc. EMC is involved in all phases of scientific and engineering model development including data ingest, data assimilation, model integration, post processing, product generation, validation and verification.
What will you do
Numerical weather prediction (NWP) applications use complex end-to-end workflows to drive the NWP systems with an aim to provide forecast guidance. The Scientific Applications Programmer will help modernize and expand the workflow that drives the global coupled modeling and prediction systems at EMC. The Scientific Applications Programmer will work with a team of developers that include other Programmers as well as physical scientists to develop cross-application tools that can be used to drive an end to end fully coupled modeling systems (from data preprocessing, quality control, data assimilation of different components, fully coupled model forecast, post processing and verification and validation).
