Opportunities, resources, and deadlines for university faculty and students
• Seeking large-scale climate-related proposals for CISL computing
• Warner Internship for Science Enrichment
• Current job openings at UCAR
• Opportunities beyond UCAR
• Reminders from previous issues
The U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) is soliciting proposals for the use of the NCAR-based Climate Simulation Laboratory (CSL) computing facilities, beginning 1 August 2012, and continuing through 31 January 2014. The deadline for submitting proposals is 20 February 2012. If you are currently using the CSL and wish to continue using the facility after June 2012, please submit your renewal proposal and a progress report by the February 20 deadline.
The multi-agency CSL computing facility was established in 1995 and is dedicated to climate modeling in support of the USGCRP. The CSL provides high-performance computing and data storage systems to support large-scale, long-running simulations of the Earth’s climate system. This round of CSL allocations will have access to NCAR’s forthcoming petascale Yellowstone system, a 1.55-PFLOPs IBM iDataPlex cluster, as well as its associated storage, data analysis, and visualization resources.
Colleagues of the late Thomas Warner have established the Warner Internship for Science Enrichment (WISE), a memorial fund in honor of Warner’s involvement in mentorship and education as an NCAR scientist and a faculty member at Pennsylvania State University and the University of Colorado Boulder. This program is supported by donations. To learn more about this fellowship program, please write to WarnerSymposium@rap.ucar.edu.
A symposium at NCAR on 2 December paid tribute to Warner. More background can be found in a related UCAR Magazine article.
Below are the titles of scientific positions now open at UCAR/NCAR/UCP, along with the relevant tracking codes. All jobs are based in Boulder unless otherwise indicated.
