AceInfo is currently seeking a Scientific Programmer I / Meteorologist to support our federal project, in Silver Spring, MD
The National Weather Service’s Meteorological Development Laboratory (MDL) is responsible for developing and implementing scientific techniques into NWS operations, furnishing a full spectrum of forecast guidance, providing interactive tools for decision assistance and forecast preparation, and conducting comprehensive evaluations of NWS products.
The Quantitative Precipitation Forecast Verification System (QPFVS) is an automated, centralized system that verifies quantitative precipitation forecasts (QPF). This system includes a web-based graphical user interface that allows for side-by-side comparisons and near-real time assessment of weather guidance (e.g., model forecast grids), forecasts (e.g., National Digital Forecast Database and Weather Prediction Center forecasts), and surface objective analyses (e.g., Un-Restricted Mesoscale Analysis). Development has recently started on a gridded verification database to provide gridded QPF verification results in near real time and the web-based GUI to display results as tabular data, plots, charts, and maps. Verification results available through QPFVS may be used in special studies for weather guidance development, presentations at scientific conferences, and in briefings to senior management.
We are seeking a Meteorologist to perform a variety of scientific programming and data processing tasks to enhance verification techniques and displays for the Quantitative Precipitation Forecast Verification System (QPFVS). Candidate must have solid meteorology background; good math skills, especially statistics. Familiarity with Geographic Information Systems (GIS), web development, and good software programming skills are preferred. This position supports the Meteorological Development Laboratory (MDL) of the Office of Science and Technology Integration (OSTI) of the National Weather Service (NWS). MDL is located in Silver Spring, Maryland.
