Job description

I.M. Systems Group, Inc. (IMSG) is seeking multiple candidates (at senior, medium, and junior levels) to support our pursuit of the Ocean Science and Technology Applications solicitation at NOAA/NESDIS/STAR. Within STAR, the Satellite Oceanography and Climatology Division (SOCD) provides the primary research and science development support for oceanic remote sensing within NOAA. The work scope covers several science teams including Sea Surface Roughness, (SSR), Ocean Color Radiometry (OCR), Sea Surface Temperature (SST), Sea Surface Height (SSH), Ocean Surface Vector Winds (OSVW), Sea Ice and Polar Dynamics (SIPD), and Sea Surface Salinity (SSS).  These science teams are supported by the NOAA Ocean Remote Sensing (ORS) Program, along with other internal and external (e.g., JPSS, NASA) programs.  The ORS Program supports the ocean observation, product and information needs of users and facilitates and enables various cross-cutting activities and functions in support of these ocean and coastal users domestically and internationally, frequently executed in partnership and collaboration with a variety of agency and other partner organizations and entities.  

Responsibilities

The candidate will perform the job duties in an independent, collaborative and initiative way, applying sophisticated and innovative science-based methods for different satellite oceanography and climatology data products, and assist the research to operations (R2O) transition. 

Qualifications

Demonstrated knowledge, skills and abilities in the following areas:

Required:

  • Strong expertise and experience in using satellite remote sensing data (in visible, infrared, and microwave bands; imaging and/or sounding) to develop/enhance algorithms for deriving one or multiple of the following ocean surface features and dynamics products
  • Sea Surface Roughness (SSR)
  • Ocean Color Radiometry (OCR)
  • Sea Surface Temperature (SST)
  • Sea Surface Height (SSH)
  • Ocean Surface Vector Winds (OSVW)
  • Sea Ice and Polar Dynamics (SIPD)
  • Sea Surface Salinity (SSS)
  • Advanced skills and knowledge of modern programming languages and object-oriented languages, such as FORTRAN90 and Python, and skills in science program language (IDL, MATLAB, etc.)
  • Advanced skills and knowledge of Linux/Unix working environment.
  • Advanced degree in physical oceanography, ocean sciences, marine sciences, satellite remote sensing, or relevant fields.
  • Senior, medium, junior level positions require a minimum of 16, 8, 4 years of relevant experience, respectively.
  • Demonstrated ability to work efficiently in a team environment and communicate effectively using good oral and written communication skills. 

Desired:

  • Advanced knowledge of modern software development practices and version control software, in particular Git/GitHub/Gitflow.
  • Experience working in a UNIX environment with advanced shell scripting languages
  • Knowledge of continuous integration (CI) / continuous development (CD) Agile development for science algorithms and transition to operations.
  • PhD in relevant field and significant expertise in satellite algorithms and products development.
