Software Developer

Are you highly motivated with a background in computer science, physical science or engineering? Would you like to be part of two exciting and internationally leading atmospheric science facilities? Do you want to develop software tools & services to support the deployment of the Atmospheric Measurement and Observation Facility (AMOF) and the FAAM Airborne Laboratory (FAAM)?

The National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS) is seeking a software developer to develop software services and applications that enable users of AMOF and FAAM to visualise and interact with weather and air quality forecast model output and near-real-time ground-based observations, in addition to specialist tools for flight planning.
