Job description

JR. ATMOSPHERIC SCIENTIST | DATA SCIENTIST IN CLIMATE DATA ANALYTICS

POSITION OVERVIEW

We are hiring an Jr. Atmospheric Scientist / Data Scientist in Climate Data Analytics to support the development of two cloud-based climate and weather data platforms for California’s energy sector.  Primary responsibilities for the Jr. Atmospheric Scientist will be to do applied research - manipulating and working with very large geospatial datasets and developing code for the platforms.  The project is heavily dependent on stakeholder engagement, requiring flexibility and adaptability.  This is an early career position - we’ll work with you to align work tasks with your skills and career goals.
 
We know that scientists are a varied lot,  and will consider full and part-time applicants, applicants seeking to work non-traditional hours and applicants working remotely.  If your experiences don’t line up with what is outlined below, but think you’d be a great fit for the project, please still apply so we can learn more about you.
 
Due to COVID-19 we are working remotely for the foreseeable future.  If employees are interested in returning to office when it’s safe, vaccination will be required.
 

RESPONSIBILITIES

The Jr. Atmospheric scientist duties will be split between two major responsibilities:
  1. Develop climate and historical weather data platforms
    • Develop and incorporate open-source tools and algorithms into data platforms
    • Support platform development by onboarding tools and toolkits
    • Add components and functionality to externally developed architecture
    • Identify and incorporate relevant data products
    • Document products and code, perform additional technical/scientific writing
    • Engage and train stakeholders and clients on developed products
  2. Process large geospatial datasets (i.e. downscaled climate models, reanalysis, observations)
    • Calculate metrics and statistics
    • Perform exploratory data analysis
    • Develop code to execute analytics and methods designed by project partners
    • Develop and apply QA/QC protocols for observed data
    • Create web-based visualizations (and toolkits) of geospatial datasets

REQUIRED QUALIFICATIONS

  • Share our values and vision, particularly in creating an inclusive and welcoming workplace.
  • Experience working with large geospatial data.
  • Demonstrated capacity to work independently.
  • Education, experience and/or skill in atmospheric, climate or environmental sciences and/or data science.  Applicants are likely to have a B.S. or M.S., but we’re open to non-traditional hires too.
