Researcher (or postdoc)- Climate change biology computation and visualization

The Buckley Lab (http://faculty.washington.edu/lbuckley/) at the University of Washington Biology Department seeks to hire a researcher to develop computational and visualization tools to translate climate change into biological responses. Possible project components include developing approaches for processing and integrating heterogeneous environmental data, building energy balance (biophysical) models to predict thermal stress, deploying applications on commercial cloud platforms (including AWS and Azure), designing APIs for computational tools, and developing web-based mapping applications to disseminate biological forecasts. Experience with web development in javascript, version control (git and github in particular), and/or processing environmental data (e.g., familiarity with NetCDF) is desirable. Additional training will be available through interactions with the UW eScience Institute. A Bachelor’s degree in a STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) and two years’ experience with scientific computing languages (e.g., Python, R) is required, but a related postdoc position may be available. Experience in the biological or environmental sciences is a plus. Significant opportunities exist for independent research and computational products depending on the candidate’s interests. There are also opportunities to participate in education and outreach in collaboration with the UW Program on Climate Change. Competitive salary and benefits. Contact Lauren Buckley (lbuckley at uw.edu) with questions and apply to position #132170 at the UW Employment page: http://www.washington.edu/admin/hr/jobs/.
