ECMWF is both a research institute and a 24/7 operational service, producing and disseminating numerical weather predictions to its Member States. ECMWF carries out scientific and technical
research directed to the improvement of its forecasts, collects and processes large amounts of observations, and manages a long-term archive of meteorological data. Satellite and in situ observations provide the information for up – to -date global analyses and climate reanalyses of the atmosphere, ocean and land surface.
This is an exciting opportunity for a motivated individual to work at the forefront of numerical weather prediction (NWP) and this position sits in the System Design Team of the Integrated Forecast
Systems Section, in the Research Department. The successful candidate will join a small, established team of NWP and scientific computing experts, responsible for implementing ECMWF’s Integrated Forecasting System (IFS), a world-leading scalable and flexible numerical weather prediction model. He or she will work to support the Senior Data Steward, a role dedicated to improving the processes and activities associated with the substantial amounts of data created within ECMWF.
The primary responsibility of the person in this role will be to design, develop and maintain the necessary databases and software to enable the Senior Data Steward, and ECMWF users to have a clear oversight of their data, and to effectively manage its lifecycle. Additionally, the successful candidate will have the opportunity to contribute to other areas of software development in the section.
