Any software developers or scientific-programming-focused researchers here wanting to work on climate-change-related tools, working the kind of mitigation scenarios used by the IPCC and supporting a broad range of modeling projects?
Scientific software including open-source modeling frameworks and packages for scenario analysis & data visualization are becoming ever more important for state-of-the-art research - this is particularly for the domain of energy systems modeling and climate change mitigation. So at the IIASA Energy Climate & Environment program, we recently established a Research Theme "Scenario Services & Scientific Software“ to support researchers in adopting best-practice of (scientific) software development and the FAIR principles for data management.
In this team, we are looking to hire a Research Software Developer to help us further improve our modelling platform infrastructure and related open-source tools for climate-change scenario analysis and science communication. One of the key responsibilities of the new team member will be acting as a community manager of the open-source MESSAGEix modelling framework: https://docs.messageix.orghttps://iiasa.ac.at/job-openings
Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions, happy to explain the current status of our software stack and upcoming projects!
