Senior Coastal Modeler – Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) is searching for a Senior Coastal Modeler (SCM). In case you are not already familiar, PNNL is a DOE-funded national laboratory with its main campus in Richland, Washington and multiple “satellite” campuses and joint institutes in places like Seattle and College Park, Maryland, among others. It employs over 4,800 scientists, engineers, and professionals and accounted for over $1 billion in R&D expenditures in FY2019.
The SCM will join PNNL’s Atmospheric Sciences and Global Change Division. Leveraging the lab’s world-class capabilities and expert team of scientists, she/he/they will be responsible for guiding the direction of PNNL’s growing coastal modeling and coastal systems science program, identifying ways in which current work can be extended to better understand how climate change is impacting, and will impact, coastal systems. This person will bring deep modeling experience and have, among many other opportunities, the chance to build a modeling framework and set of computational tools that will advance coastal system science.
