Senior Research Scientist Positions Available at CCSI

Jun 08, 2016

The Climate Change Science Institute (CCSI) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is recruiting two senior research scientists. One position is in the Impacts, Adaptation, and Vulnerability (IAV) group and the other is for a data scientist in the Data Integration, Dissemination, and Informatics (DIDI) group.  

The IAV position is joint between CCSI and the Urban Dynamics Institute. The successful candidate will be a thought leader in the field of IAV research. She/he will be expected to grow and lead IAV projects and staff that advance the state-of-the art in the research, modeling, and analysis of climate change impacts.

The DIDI position is joint between CCSI and the National Center for Computational Sciences.  The successful candidate will be a thought leader in the field of data research. She/he will be expected to grow and lead new data research programs. This person will help solve the “big data” problem associated with studying the climate system and how natural and human systems influence and are impacted by a changing climate. A key focus will be identifying, accessing, and using data in novel ways to address some of the most pressing challenges facing humankind.

The successful candidates will have the opportunity to draw upon the substantial expertise and tools available at ORNL including one of the fastest and most capable supercomputers in the world, world-class climate, population, and urban dynamic models, sophisticated data management and visualization tools, and an exceptional research collaboration environment.
