Job alerts: Six RSE positions at the new Institute of Computing for Climate Science

Posted by j.laird on 16 June 2022 - 10:00am

Six new RSE posts are being advertised at the Institute of Computing for Climate Science (ICCS) at the University of Cambridge.

In the face of the present climate crisis, there is pressing need for skilled software engineers to aid climate scientists in delivering a new generation of high-quality, high-performance, and high-assurance models. This is the broad aim of these RSE posts at the new Institute of Computing for Climate Science (ICCS) at the University of Cambridge.

The key objective of ICCS is to improve understanding of our changing climate through the development, implementation, maintenance, and dissemination of models for scientific computing, data assimilation and analysis. ICCS hosts a team of Research Software Engineers who are working directly with four international Schmidt Futures' Virtual Earth systems Research Institutes (VESRI) to directly address specific computation and research software needs of climate scientists. The teams are:


The ICCS works with these teams and also on cross-cutting software engineering concerns. The team of RSEs will also interact closely with researchers based at ICCS. Thus, this provide a unique opportunity to be involved in research projects directly connected to climate science but also broader research into supporting climate science through computer science, software engineering, and data science.

The posts are fixed term for 5 years. The closing date is 30 June.
