Visiting Scientist - Oceanographic Data Analyst

National Ocean Service/Office of Coast Survey Development Laboratory

Silver Spring, MD

 Initial consideration will be given to applications

received prior to 4:00 p.m. (MST), Friday, 29 July, 2016.

This position will focus on development of tidal datum transformations for NOAA’s VDatum vertical datum transformation project. NOAA has developed a new methodology to blend together datums from tide model results and tide gauge observations that improves the quality of tidal datum transformations. This new method also calculates the spatially varying uncertainty in the blended tidal datum fields.


Visiting Scientist - Coastal Hydrodynamic Modeler

National Ocean Service/Office of Coast Survey Development Laboratory

Silver Spring, MD

 Initial consideration will be given to applications

received prior to 4:00 p.m. (MST), Friday, 29 July, 2016.

This position will focus on the development of coupled coastal hydrodynamic models for the assessment of coastal flooding caused by landfalling tropical cyclones. NOAA is developing a coupled modeling system to conduct hindcasts of the water levels during tropical cyclones caused by storm surges, tides, waves, and hydrologic/hydraulic inflows. The focus of this position will be on the development of software to couple the models that will simulate these components.


Software Engineer/Programmer II

NOAA’s National Weather Service (NWS)/Office of Dissemination (DISS) and National
Ocean Service (NOS)/Coast Survey Development Laboratory (CSDL)

Durham, NH

 

Initial consideration will be given to applications received prior to 4:00 p.m. (MST), Friday, 5 August, 2016.

This position involves enhancement of the nowCOAST data ingest system, web mapping services, and map viewer to improve efficiencies, implement additional features and functionality, and incorporate the processing and display of additional datasets provided by NOAA, NESDIS, or other federal partners.


Software Engineer/Programmer II

NOAA NWS Integrated Dissemination Program (IDP)

Silver Spring, MD

 

Initial consideration will be given to applications received prior to 4:00 p.m. (MST), Friday, 5 August, 2016.

This position involves the development of an interactive Web map viewer to fulfill NWS mission requirements using the NOAA nowCOAST Framework.  This map viewer will eventually become operational in the NOAA IDP infrastructure. In addition, the position will also involve the enhancement of the IDP-GIS data ingest system and web mapping services to improve efficiencies, implement additional features and functionality, and process and display additional NWS datasets.


The RFC student assistant has the potential to contribute to RFC development efforts in a number of ways that vary depending upon skill sets and interests.  Contributions related to application software and web development, real-time notification processes, and interactive graphics are highly desirable. The appointment as a student assistant will be as a Casual employee for a six month term, with the possibility of extension.
