The NOAA Center for Satellite Applications and Research (STAR) is the science arm of the National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS), which acquires and manages the nation’s environmental satellites. STAR scientists lead efforts to develop, test, validate, and refine the science algorithms needed to drive user-defined products. They also investigate both enhanced and new sensor technology for future NOAA satellite missions and conduct research to examine which products users will need to carry out NOAA's mission goals. STAR supports the calibration and validation of all data in NOAA's satellite operations and develops new methods for inter-calibrating data from NOAA polar and geostationary satellites with other satellites in the evolving international system. Additionally, STAR collaboratively develops efficient methods and technology to transfer new products from research to operations.
Riverside is seeking a mid to senior-level Data Analyst to support NOAA STAR and work with atmospheric scientists on a variety of projects. The work will entail using knowledge and expertise to research and develop new and innovative uses of satellite data to help coordinate efforts between NESDIS/STAR and commercial, university, and/or private partners/companies. It includes investigating new techniques and new observing systems and evaluating their potential impact on products. It also includes developing product assessment tools, designing and developing scientific applications, code integration, porting, testing, and debugging, releasing and maintaining code, and documenting software applications in both standard and High-Performance Computing (HPC) environments. This position can be remote though all candidates must be located within the United States.
