Lynker is seeking a Developer for Weather Modeling to support NOAA in carrying out research and development work related to future operational hurricane forecast systems. The successful Developer for Weather Modeling will handle the development, testing, and evaluation of the Hurricane Analysis and Forecast System (HAFS), which is the Unified Forecast Systems (UFS) hurricane application, providing reliable, robust, and skillful model forecasts for tropical cyclones (TCs). The duties of the Developer for Weather Modeling will include the following:
The candidate will perform the job duties in a high-quality, independent, and collaborative way, assisting in managing projects and developing and applying innovative methods for the primary work areas. The candidate will work with EMC scientists and external collaborators to develop and evaluate the current and future operational hurricane forecast systems, as well as to design, develop and evaluate HAFS ensemble analysis and forecast for downstream applications. The candidate will work with advanced UFS infrastructure and multi-scale modeling framework, improving hurricane specific physics, data assimilation, dynamics, and high-resolution telescoping and moving nest techniques.

Design, develop, test and evaluate the HAFS based ensemble forecast system.
Optimize hurricane ensemble perturbations and improve ensemble spread.
Find optimal number of HAFS ensemble members and develop probabilistic forecast products.
Conduct HAFS ensemble simulations to provide atmospheric forcing for downstream applications.
Conduct pre-implementation tests for annual experimental and operational hurricane model upgrades.
Develop advanced scripts for flexible end-to-end system integration and automation.
Qualifications of the Developer for Weather Modeling should include the Following:
A Masters Degree or higher in atmospheric sciences or meteorology, oceanic, mathematics, or related physical science with at least 2 years of experience in the area of hurricane and tropical cyclone (TC) modeling.
Demonstrated knowledge, skills, and abilities in the following areas:

Advanced knowledge of tropical meteorology and experience in developing hurricane numerical weather prediction (NWP) systems for operational implementation.
Experience/knowledge of hurricane model evaluation and verification.
Excellent knowledge and skills of modern programming languages and object-oriented languages, such as FORTRAN90 and Python.
Skills and knowledge of the High Performing Computing environment.
Proficient with modern software development practices and version control software.
Demonstrated skill in communicating effectively with scientists of diverse backgrounds on technical details of the work plan and present results accurately and clearly in both oral and written form.
Ability to work independently on complex problems in a team and fast-paced environment and demonstrated skill in performing tasks requiring organization and attention to detail.

The Ideal Developer for Weather Modeling will have the Following:

Familiarity with operational NWP and/or an operational forecasting environment.
Experience with UFS applications and knowledge of earth system modeling.
Experience in high-resolution model development in various infrastructures (ESMF, FMS, CCPP, etc.).
Familiarity with agile software development practices.
