Print Friendly, PDF & Email

LBNL is seeking a Software Developer for the FATES Project in our Job of the Week.

Berkeley Lab’s Climate & Ecosystems Division has an opening for a Software Developer. The Software Developer will be responsible for collaboratively working to support scientific users exploring feedbacks between vegetation dynamics and climate in the Earth system. The engineer will work with the FATES model, which is a size and age structured dynamic vegetation model that represents plant physiology and ecosystem assembly processes for use within Earth system models.

The incumbent will work with the FATES lead engineer, other developers and users of the FATES model to design, implement, test, and integrate improvements to the FATES model. This position will be principally funded by the NGEE-Tropics project, which is a long-term, DOE-supported effort to bring together observational and theoretical approaches to build, inform, and test the representation of tropical forests within Earth system models. You will provide hands-on software development and application support to scientists in the NGEE-Tropics project, including collaborators at other national laboratories, the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, and US Forest Service. You will also work to support scientists working on other projects that are also using the FATES model. This position may be filled at the higher level, dependent on experience.

What You Will Do:

  • Integrate, implement, and test software for land and ecosystem model processes as used in site-, regional- and climate-scale simulations.
  • Collaborate with scientific staff in developing and improving modern software.
  • Support scientific staff and develop software methods to effectively use HPC resources (e.g., NERSC).
  • Assist the team creatively to develop software that addresses land model needs over the next decade.
  • Application of visualization and analysis software packages to facilitate software development.
