Position as scientific programmer

About us

The Nansen Centre is an independent non-profit research foundation conducting multidisciplinary research with a focus on the marine environment, cryosphere and atmosphere, where scientific activities are closely integrated with innovation and service development. The Arctic is one of our main areas of attention. NERSC takes an active part in training and capacity building for students and young scientists, as well as dissemination to stakeholders in public and private sector and society in general. We have an international workplace with some 70 employees from 28 nations.

 

The vacant position 

The Nansen Centre has a vacant 100% temporary position as Scientific programmer for a duration of one year, potentially reconducted. 

The position is linked to several ongoing research projects focusing on climate science and glaciology in particular. The new programmer will have to work on a C++ parallelized code being developed since 5 years by NERSC researchers and being used to simulate sea ice in polar regions. In this numerical model, the sea ice is discretized on a finite element (triangular) adaptive mesh, meaning that the mesh is being locally remeshed if getting too distorted, in order to keep its numerical integrity. This model, called neXtSIM, is a state-of-the-art sea ice model and the only one of his kind in the sea ice modelling community worldwide because of its unique physics and numerics. It is used for various applications, from climate modelling to operational sort-term forecasting.

The work will be carried within the sea ice modelling research group (https://www.nersc.no/group/sea-ice-modelling) at the centre, and in collaboration with Dr. Abdoulaye Samaké working at Université of Bamako in Mali.

LEGACY: Nansen LEGACY

The Nansen Legacy provides an integrated scien­tific knowledge base required for the sustainable management through the 21st century of the environment and marine resources of the Barents Sea and adjacent Arctic Basin.

The Nansen Legacy is a joint, concrete and ambitious plan to follow Nansen’s example in exploring the Arctic. To establish a holistic understanding of a changing Arctic Ocean and ecosystem, the project will provide the scientific knowledge base needed for future sustainable resource management in the Barents Sea and the adjacent Arctic Basin. An ice-free Arctic is gradually emerging. The winter sea ice retreat is date most pronounced in the Barents Sea, the Atlantic gateway to the Arctic.

AOIP: Atmosphere-Ocean-Ice Interactions in Polar and sub-polar regions

This project is about improving our understanding of some atmosphere-ocean-ice interaction processes, as well as our ability to model them and their impact

The main goal of AOIP is to improve our understanding of atmosphere-ocean-ice interaction processes, as well as our ability to model them and their impact. The underlying goal is to assess the need for these processes to be correctly simulated in the Norwegian Earth System Model (NorESM), to help defining the path for its future development, and to thus to help establish it as one of the reference tools to explore the climate in polar and sub-polar regions.
