Postdoctoral Research or Software Engineering Position, Computational Landscape Modeling, University of Colorado, Boulder. Applications are invited for either a post-doctoral researcher with a background in the Earth Sciences and in scientific software development, or a software engineer with experience in geoscience modeling. The successful candidate will be based at the University of Colorado, Boulder, and will collaborate with a team of scientists at Tulane University, the University of Washington, and the University of New Mexico. The project entails building stand-alone software components that can be linked to explore different questions about landscape evolution over various spatial and temporal scales. The researcher will be responsible for helping to design, implement and test software, and coordinate amongst team members. The position requires knowledge of an open-source, object-oriented programming language. Experience in C++ is especially desirable, as is a background in geomorphology or hydrology, and/or experience with model-coupling frameworks. The position will have the support of the Community Surface Dynamics Modeling System (CSDMS) infrastructure, based in Boulder, Colorado. Some travel to work with team members at different Universities will be necessary. The position is available starting in late summer or early autumn 2012. Initial funding is for one year, although the position may be extended for an additional year based on performance. To apply, please send a CV including contacts for three references and a cover letter that describes your experience with software development and numerical modeling to Greg Tucker, [email protected]. Priority will be given to applications received before July 23, 2012.
