Integrated Statistics is looking for a SCIENTIFIC PROGRAMMER to work with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Northeast Fisheries Science Center in Narragansett, RI.

The Northeast Fisheries Science Center (NEFSC) is the research component of NOAA NMFS for the Northeast Region. NEFSC has an ongoing research program to use remotely-sensed data collected by satellites to monitor the spatial, seasonal, inter-annual and decadal variability in sea surface temperature and phytoplankton productivity of the Northeast United States continental shelf Large Marine Ecosystem (LME), and to understand how oceanographic variability influences fisheries productivity and the living marine resources within this region. 

The Scientific Programmer will assist scientists with computer data processing and analyses in order to conduct research using an extensive existing archive of satellite Sea Surface Temperature (SST) and ocean color (OC) data to characterize and quantify the seasonal, inter-annual, and decadal variability of temperature and phytoplankton in continental shelf water off the Northeast U.S. Coast. The scientific programmer’s primary work responsibilities lie in automating the acquisition, processing, auditing, programming, analysis, modeling, and dissemination of remotely-sensed satellite data.  The programmer will assist scientists in tasks that include generating data summaries, data requests, software development, and model execution (initialization, parameterization, calibration and validation).

Specific tasks include:


The successful applicant must possess knowledge and analytic proficiency in scientific computer programming. Additional knowledge related to satellite remote-sensing, fisheries, and marine ecosystems is highly desirable. 

Specific skills and experience include:

The position is full-time with an expected duration of one year. The rate of pay is approximately $35/hr and the position is eligible for the benefits described on the Integrated Statistics website. The programmer is expected to work on-site in Narragansett.
