NASA Civil Servant Radiative Transfer Scientist
The Earth Sciences Division at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, in Greenbelt, Maryland, is soliciting statements of interest for full-time PhD level civil servant scientist positions for early career through senior levels. Information about the several positions is available on the AGU Career Center website.
One of these positions is specific to research at the Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York City:
Radiative Transfer: We seek a scientist with expertise in the design and development of line-by-line and multiple scattering radiative transfer models of solar and thermal radiation with application to terrestrial-type atmospheres at the Goddard Institute for Space Studies, New York. Specific experience in the use of numerical parameterizations (e.g., k- distributions) and analysis and interpretation of spectral and/or polarimetric measurements are highly desirable, as are interests in terrestrial climate, solar system planets, including exo-planet applications. Also highly desirable are programming skills in FORTRAN and/or similar computer languages.
The above position is intended for civil servant hiring for U.S. citizens. A PhD or equivalent experience in Earth sciences or related discipline is highly desirable. Interested scientists should send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statements of research interests and names and contact information for three professional references to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 30, 2015. A subsequent job application process will be conducted through USAJOBS (www.usajobs.gov). NASA GSFC is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
